A Port in Portland

The design of Portland's waterfront is no accident. In the late 1980s, the Waterfront Alliance began drafting recommendations for Portland's waterfront zones. Those recommendations laid the groundwork for the waterfront's future, and established the West Port Development Zone as an industrial working port. Today the International Marine Terminal is a viable port and a new development proposal has prompted the city of Portland to reexamine zoning on the western waterfront for the first time in 24 years. Wharfside: Stories of Portland Harbor's Working Waterfront explore the people, places, and work in Portland Harbor through photos, audio stories, and video. This story for Wharfside is made possible by the Maine Port Authority and was reviewed by Waterfront Alliance. Produced by Galen Koch 2016. Photos by Justin Levesque. Music for this piece provided by Ross Gallagher and Loch Lomond. Animation assistance from Lake Buckley.

Dredging the Slips

There's a lot of silt between Portland Harbor's wharves and piers, and some of it is very, very dirty. For decades, piers owners have worked to incite a collective effort in the Portland community to remove and dispose of this material. With many stakeholders dedicated to waterfront access and increased berthing, the question still remains: Once we remove it, where do we put it?
