USA: Community Tries to Raise Funds for Pentwater Harbor Dredging

A community in Oceana county is pulling together to help make sure their Pentwater Harbor is deep enough for large power and sail boats, reports

Pentwater Village Manager Jim Miller says water currents have caused sand and sediment to collect at the harbor entrance where the water is only eight feet deep.

This year federal dollars aren’t available to pay for dredging.

Protect Pentwater Harbor will hold a day of fundraising activities June 23rd at the yacht club.

The dredging project is expected to start July 1st.
