Broad Creek Dredging To Begin

Because of what is described as ‘extreme shoaling,’ dredging is expected to soon begin on Broad Creek in Middlesex County. Supervisors there voted unanimously last month to approve an agreement with the Middle Peninsula Planning District Commission to implement a project to get it accomplished. While work on Whiting Creek is in the design phase right now, the extreme shoaling at the entrance to Broad Creek and in the channel means that will be a full dredging project. They say it needs immediate attention because it has become a public safety hazard.
