Dredging begins in port; Biofuel to be shipped from port; TENACIOUS due to return

Lakeshore Towing began dredging the Old Ore Dock slip on Wednesday. Skilled crews will be working 7 days per week with tugs FLATTOP and DON HENRY and barges 501 and 502. They expect to be hauling two or three loads of dredged material per day to the disposal site near the South Pier.

CLIPPER TOBAGO is due in Erie at 1700 tomorrow, in ballast from Becancour, Quebec. TOBAGO will be loading the first load of biodiesel to be shipped from the port.

Tug TENACIOUS has completed delivery of the WITTE 4003 to Quebec and is currently laying over in Clayton Harbor, New York, in the 1000 Islands of the St. Lawrence River, before proceeding back to Erie. No ETA for her yet.

This is the first news I've heard that Lake Erie Biofuels has started production.
