Hampton Harbor Dredging Project Approved By Feds

Seacoast Online: The President has signed a bill authorizing the dredging of Hampton Harbor, and local officials hope funding for the project will now come in 2019.

The project was included in the America’s Water Infrastructure Act, signed last week by President Donald Trump.
