WELLFLEET — “Well,” said Dan Conroy, a field engineer-slash-hydrographic surveyor at Cashman Dredging and Marine Contracting, a Quincy-based company working under the supervision of the Army Corps of Engineers, “I guess we’re digging.”
Any other insights he wanted to offer? “Not really. That’s about it. We’re just out there, digging.”
Wellfleet Harbormaster Michael Flanagan — who, in September, told the Independent the dredging project was “just incredibly exciting” — couldn’t offer many details, either.
“I think it’s going pretty good. Seems like it. I mean” — he gestured to the two barges outside his office’s second-floor window — “they’re here.”
“Yeah, I guess that’s all I got.”
Kyle Reeves, Cashman’s project manager, proved even less forthcoming.
“We can’t give any comment on the project,” Reeves said. “You’ll have to reach out to our client for that.”
That would be the Army Corps of Engineers, who did not respond to repeated requests for comment. —Josephine de La Bruyère
