USA: Meeting Over Hernando Dredge Project Set for Tomorrow
Environmental Services Director Susan Goebel reported to the Board of County Commissioners on Tuesday, April 24th.
She said that last week the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) determined that approximately one acre of seagrass had been impacted in the Hernando Beach Channel due to over-dredging.
The County and the Project Contractor will meet with FDEP and the Army Corps of Engineers on Friday, April 27th, to discuss the issue. The County continues to retain $43,000 from the contractor’s final payment.
