Preparations Underway for Apollo Beach Dredging

Gator Dredging, a Florida-based dredging contractor, will start dredging operations by the end of this month in Apollo Beach, Florida.

This dredging scheme will begin in the North Channel and then proceed to the South and Main Pass channels in May.

The Apollo Beach dredging program will be completed by the end of May, barring any bad weather or equipment malfunctions.

Once the work is done, three channels leading to the area will go from about 4 feet in depth to about 71/2 feet deep at low tide, opening up access for yachts and sailboats that right now have to wait for high tide to get in and out of the area.

Dredging operations will take place during the working days of the week.

In addition to the dredging work, the project will replace the eroded shoreline at the 60-acre Apollo Beach Nature Preserve.
