In two areas of Rhu Marina berths were no longer usable because of severe build up of silt deposits over many years. Land & Water Services were employed by Quay Marinas, having worked successfully with them before, to remove the silts and restore access to a new pontoon system being installed.
Commencing on the last day of January 2011, working seven hours per day on the falling tide over a period of six days, 4,000 m3 of silts were removed. A minimum water depth of 1.5 meters at all states of the tide was achieved even in areas previously inaccessible and completely dried out.
