According to vcstar.com, the Ventura Harbor needs $5.9 million to dredge its waterway entrance and an area known as the “sand trap.”
â€œFor now, the waterway is fine, but without dredging that won’t always be the case,â€œ stated Ventura Port District General Manager Oscar PeÃ±a.
PeÃ±a, Ventura Mayor Mike Tracy and Commissioner Gregory Carson went to Washington. D.C., in late July to lobby to get funding restored, vcstar.com reports.
PeÃ±a told legislators the harbor is the only one in California not getting dredging money.
