Brevard County’s Official Save Our Indian River Lagoon has just released a very interesting video about the Cocoa Beach dredging program in Florida.
In the video, Cocoa Beach Project Manager, Wayne Carragino, discusses about the muck removal project in the canals of Cocoa Beach, explaining the challenges and benefits of this project that will remove 2,455 pounds of nitrogen and 366 pounds of phosphorus from polluting the lagoon.
According to the City of Cocoa Beach’s latest project update, Phase IIb of the dredging work will be starting within the next month.
Phase IIb consists of the dredging operations on the last twelve remaining residential canals, permitted by USACE. These twelve canals are located in the center portion of the city.
The projected completion date for Phase IIb is November 13, 2020.
