The primary purpose of the project is to dredge the main channel by Canal 18 and Waterfront Park. In addition, a new and improved capacity boat launch will be constructed at the City park with capability to handle an increased amount of boater traffic. The exising boat ramp will be converted into parking to support the local businesses in the area that are located in the City of Port Richey’s Waterfront Overlay District and to improve access to the waterways that will benefit recreational and commercial users. The objectives are to improve boat access for recreational and commercial purposes, improve water quality, increase disbursement time of stormwater runoff, and increase tidal flow.
