Floating Wharf Replacement and Installation at Stuart Town Small Craft Harbour, Stuart Town, Charlotte County, New Brunswick

The proposed Project at Stuart Town Small Craft Harbour in Deer Island, New Brunswick involves the replacement and installation of floating wharves at the harbour, including installation of two steel piles adjacent to wharf #1. Existing piles will be extracted or cut at ground level and left in place. The existing floating wharves will be removed and disposed of in an approved manner. The existing gangway will be reconnected to the new floating wharves once the work is completed. In total there will be six new floating wharves installed; one Type 1 wharf and five Type 2 wharves. The Type 1 wharf will be approximate 18 m by 5 m with timber decking. The Type 2 wharves will be approximately 15 m by 3 m and constructed with timber decking.
