Megaberth too shallow for big ships?

PORTLAND - Late last year, a committee of city and Portland Harbor officials sent a letter to then-Gov. John Baldacci recommending dredging along the eastern end of Portland's "megaberth," which was under construction.
But Ocean Gateway Pier II, which opened Sept. 10, was not dredged, and on Tuesday a cruise ship's captain left the berth early to avoid shallow water.
