A project to construct a rubble mound breakwater in Mary’s Harbour has been registered with the provincial government for environmental assessment by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans’ (DFO) small craft harbours.

The breakwater, which will protect existing harbour infrastructure from waves, will measure approximately 165 meters in length and will vary between roughly 10 and 30 meters in width, according to a bulletin issued by the Department of Municipal Affairs and Environment.

Construction of the breakwater is expected to require 14 weeks to complete.

The public has until Oct. 19 to comment on the project and a government decision is due by Oct. 27.
