One of the largest Martha’s Vineyard navigational projects in recent years is about to start in October, when work begins to dredge the length of the Menemsha Creek channel from the Vineyard Sound entrance into Menemsha Pond, according to an article on MVTimes.com.

The work is intended to provide a safe passage into the pond anchorage, designated a harbor of refuge. One offshoot of the work will be approximately 60,000 cubic yards of sandy sediment, which will be pumped to replenish sand lost to erosion and storm damage along Lobsterville Beach in Aquinnah.
