Chatham 2007 Inlet May Be Dredged

Cape Cod Times: Selectmen have given the go-ahead for dredging in [Chatham’s] Pleasant Bay, adjacent to the south side of the 2007 inlet to make the channel safer for commercial fishermen and recreational boaters despite concerns from some nearby property owners about the possibility of increased erosion.

Before the county dredge can begin deepening a portion of a channel that runs north to south along the inside of North Beach Island, the town must get approval from the state Department of Environmental Protection.
