  • The dredging of South Benson's Channel has received the funding approval, but only one of the two necessary permits as of 5/12/17. We are in the midst of testing the samples for contamination. The results will determine much of the cost and scheduling. We are hopeful that work will begin late fall 2017.

  • In response to increasing demand, we are now having longer and more stable Frog-Hook dock hardware fabricated. I will follow up with more details in the next few weeks.
