New Bedford Toxic Ocean Wind Port - Taxpayers Need Answers Now

The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center has spent over 100 million building the New Bedford Ocean Marine Commerce Terminal at taxpayers expense.

Tug boat and ship operators in June of 2014 have complained the channel is still to narrow and shallow for an ocean wind turbine port.

The result of the complaints by tug boats is the Army Corps Of Engineers has of August of 2014 a brand new dredging plan for New Bedford Harbor.(To remove 930,000 cubic yards of material)

This brings into question the management and finances of the current ongoing construction of the ocean wind turbine port. Why now a few months before the completion of the ocean port have they found the channel not wide enough and deep enough ?

The Massachusetts Clean Energy Center put out a RFI in April. The RFI now has to be questioned ! What are they talking about in the RFI if the channel isn't wide enough and deep enough as stated in the RFI below :

The dredge requirements are as high as 930,000 cubic yards of material. Much of this material has electrical parts manufacturers discharged wastes containing polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) and toxic metals into New Bedford Harbor. Hundreds of acres of marine sediment were highly contaminated. One location contained the highest concentrations of PCBs ever documented in a marine environment.

New Bedford Harbor is the most toxic marine environment in the world. Can one Cad Cell hold 930,000 cubic yards of some of the most toxic material in the world ?
