The Municipality of Cervia has around 30.000 inhabitants and is located in the Emilia Romagna Region, on the Adriatic coast. It belongs to Ravenna Province and is formed by an urban centre and different localities situated in a vast territory covering 82,19 Kmq.
The Municipality is in charge of the management of the Port. The Marina di Cervia is located on the NE side of the old harbor, reserved for recreational craft, made of a dock with 8 piers. The port has a capacity of 300 boats with a maximum length of 22 m.
The port of Cervia is interested by a cyclic problem of inlet silting. The technological solutions adopted until now, including seasonal dredging and/or sand handling through boat propeller as well as docks lengthening (completed in 2009), didn’t solve the problem and are a cause of both sea pollution and economical efforts.
