Congressman Lee Zeldin announced in July that a contract has been awarded to dredge the dangerously shoaled Moriches Inlet. This is fantastic news for boaters who were previously put in harm's way when navigating the channel. This also will be very beneficial to the environment, as the increased flushing of Moriches Bay will help decrease harmful algae blooms.
The dredging is expected to remove approximately 158,000 cubic yards of sand, restoring the channel to the federally authorized depth of 10 feet deep. It is expected to be completed by mid-October later this fall.
