Chincoteague Inlet Dredging to Begin March 6 (USA)

The U.S. Army Corps plans to remove about 100,000 cubic years of sand from the Chincoteague Inlet to keep the navigation channel open for watercraft.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that the annual dredging will begin March 6 and is scheduled to continue for 21 days.

The corps says the work isn’t expected to interfere with vessels in the channel.
