After 130 years of service, the breakwall in Oswego Harbor received a facelift in 2015. The 7,200-foot-long wall, originally built in the 1880s, shields Oswego Harbor from the sometimes destructive waves of Lake Ontario. The detached breakwall experienced extensive damage during Hurricane Sandy. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers received $1.3 million in public grants to dredge the Oswego Harbor in its fiscal year 2016 budget; the harbor was last dredged in 2014 when 71,000 cubic yards of material were removed.
