Mamainse Harbour Deepening - Revitalising Local Economy

The Small Craft Harbour that serves the community of Mamainse in Ontario had, in 2009, reached a point whereby the depth of water was insufficient to service the local fishing vessels. Boats entering the harbour were experiencing regular damage from hitting the lakebed. One particular vessel lost its propeller and drive shaft due to grounding. The passage of fishing and recreational vessels into the harbour was vital to the local economy and First Nation community. A combination of environmental and geological conditions had caused the water level to lower to an unacceptable level.
