Dredge We Must!

Visitors to Compo Beach — and there have been many these recent, beautiful days — have wondered about all the heavy equipment near South Beach.

They’re there to dredge the Ned Dimes Marina and adjacent channel.

It’s the first time since 1993. Since then, Hurricanes Irene and Sandy — along with the natural movement of tides — have created dangerous conditions for boaters.

The project involves over 20,000 cubic yards of sand.

And in 2040 or so, we’ll do it all over again.
