The Menemsha Dock in Chilmark, Cuttyhunk Harbor in Gosnold and a plan to dredge Lighthouse Beach in Edgartown are beneficiaries of state Seaport Economic Council grants announced Tuesday. The $176,000 headed to the Town of Chilmark, $96,000 to the Town of Edgartown and $300,000 to the Town of Gosnold are part of almost $10.8 million awarded to 19 projects statewide.

According to a July 26 release from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, the Chilmark grant will support phase 2 of the Menemsha Dock Replacement and Elevation Project. A recently completed Seaport Economic Council-supported phase one engineering assessment identified significant deterioration of the fishing dock, bulkhead and supporting infrastructure. Phase two will create design options and engineer plans for the replacement and will include a public community engagement process.

In Edgartown, the town will use the grant for engineering, design and permitting to expand the current comprehensive permit to dredge Lighthouse Beach, the only and highly trafficked entranceway into Edgartown’s inner harbor and Katama Bay.

For Gosnold, the $300,000 will go to a project to survey, engineer, and acquire permits associated with dredging the existing town-owned marina, fish pier and a shoal area outside the USACE channel in Cuttyhunk Harbor. The project will focus on surveying existing conditions, identifying areas and volumes associated with the required dredging. Once the dredge plan is developed, the grant will allow the town to proceed with sediment sampling and characterization and permitting with the local, state, and federal regulatory agencies.
