Canal Dredging Master Plan


Dredging is an excavation activity or operation carried out with the purpose of gathering up bottom sediments and disposing of them at a different location.

Proactive maintenance of the City canal system is necessary to keep our waterways navigable, clean, functional, and visually appealing. Therefore, the City of Fort Lauderdale Public Works Department performs canal dredging maintenance work throughout the City waterways. The City is in the process of developing a Canal Dredging Master Plan to improve access to and enjoyment of our waterways.
