The Ocean City Inlet dredging program is about to begin, the Maryland Congressman Andy Harris said in his latest announcement.
Commenting the latest news, Congressman Harris said: “I applaud the Army Corps of Engineers for taking the steps necessary to get dredging of the Ocean City Inlet underway.”
“The fishing and maritime industry is critical to our local economy and community.
“This dredging is a high priority, and I am glad the Corps is getting the job done.”
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) was able to secure a USACE dredge vessel from their Wilmington District for this dredging job.
The vessel is scheduled to dredge for five days over the coming week, starting today.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plays an active role in Ocean City – carrying out multiple missions and ongoing efforts in and around this coastal city.
