Burnt Store Isles Perimeter Channel Dredging Project

Post Date:06/21/2017 6:00 AM
BSI Perimeter ChannelBurnt Store Isles Perimeter Channel Dredge Project: The City of Punta Gorda contractor, Brance Diversified, has begun the maintenance dredging of the perimeter channel in the Burnt Store Isles subdivision (work will occur seven days a week as weather and equipment operation permit).  The dredge is adjacent to Palermo Drive and will progress north along the perimeter channel to the completion point at Terin Court.  Boaters should expect navigational delays and need to exercise caution in the vicinity of the work and may contact the company workers through channel 78 on the VHF radio.  The dredge will be located in the perimeter channel and will have up to 4,000 feet of 12 inch discharge pipe leading to the BSI Southspoil locations.  The spoil will be discharged directly into the canal system as required by the State/Federal permits.

 The first spoil location will be the southernmost basin between Monaco Drive and Palermo Drive which will be blocked by turbidity screens.  Homeowners in this basin will need to contact Joost Derijk (952-999-3122), Chris Hays (727-580-2481), or Seth Mayhall (337-793-6740) to schedule their exit and reentry from the work area.  The affected addresses are 800-842 Monaco Drive, 363-375 Portofino Drive, and 5018-5052 Palermo Drive.
