Seawall fails at Portsmouth fish pier

Officials have blocked off a 40-foot section of the seawall at the Portsmouth Commercial Fish Pier on Peirce Island after it recently failed. The failure poses a problem for fishermen looking to unload their catch and fuel their boats in Portsmouth. Port of New Hampshire Director Geno Marconi said the fastenings that “hold the seawall to the anchors that are in the ground have failed.” “It is pulling away from the anchoring system,” Marconi said Monday. “The ultimate danger is the entire wall fails.” >click to read<12:48
