Vineyard Gazette: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said this week that it plans to go ahead with a major dredging project in the Menemsha harbor despite objections from the town of Chilmark.

The $1.95 million project calls for removing 6’ of material from the channel, basin and into Menemsha Pond. Funding for the project comes from the $50 billion Hurricane Sandy relief bill passed in 2012. The channel is designated by the Army Corps as a federal navigation project.
