The Army Corps of Engineers' most recent phase of the dredging plan for the harbor channel ended in August, 2011. Private dredging for access to the channe is taking place in some locations.

I have acted as liaison between the Corps and the neighborhood. The web addresses below are intended to provide some background information about what was involved in the project The map above shows the dredging area.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if i can be of assistance about the project.
