Mattituck Inlet Dredging About to Begin (USA)

Congressman Tim Bishop announced that the United States Army Corps of Engineers will start a project in Mattituck that includes the dredging of Mattituck Inlet, addresses significant beach erosion that has occurred east of the inlet, and removes sand build-up to the immediate west of the inlet’s jetties.

I am pleased to announce that this long awaited project is now moving forward. I want to thank the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation and the Town of Southold for their hard work and cooperation to make this project a reality,” said Congressman Bishop.

The project is 100 percent federally funded at a cost of $2.2 million. The USACE plans to begin mobilizing for the project by January 15th, with work to start on or about January 21st. The project is scheduled to be completed by February 28th of this year.

With strong community support, we accomplished this project. Our beaches will be replenished with sand that will again naturally flow eastward along the shore. Keeping nature and man-made structures in harmony is important to our community,” said Doris and Ronald McGreevy of Mattituck.

Studies have shown that the jetties, which are part of Mattituck Inlet, interrupt the natural movement of sand eastward. To provide relief for this, a total of roughly 100,000 cubic yards of sand will be placed east of the inlet for beach replenishment purposes.

Southold Town Supervisor Scott Russell stated, “I am pleased that the long overdue dredging of Mattituck Inlet is finally taking place. I also want to thank Congressman Bishop for all of his hard work and efforts that made this project come to fruition for the benefit of the residents of the Town of Southold.
