Dear Sandy Point Committee Members,

It is time to update you all on the progress that has been made toward securing the permits required to dredge the Sandy Point Harbor entrance.

So far, we have been through the Corps of Engineering and Fisheries and are now dealing with Whatcom County who has again requested additional information from us. This process has taken a considerable amount of time. The permit request with Whatcom County was originally submitted In April 2017.

In addition to the contractors previously retained; Jepson Engineering, Fairbanks Environmental Services – biologist, Dannon Traxler – attorney, we have contracted with Confluence Environmental to complete the study of shoreline sedimentation and expect to submit their report to the county in early May.

We will be having a community meeting concerning the dredge project in the near future and we will let you all know as to date, time and location.

Thank you all for your participation in this very important project.
