Boaters say sand is filling in near Bowditch Point, likely made worse by Tropical Storm Debby.

Some boaters say Matanzas Pass at the north end of Fort Myers Beach is half as deep as it was weeks ago.

Lee County officials have asked the Army Corps of Engineers in Jacksonville to come up with solutions.
