MC Gets Dredging Project Grants

Dredging projects are moving forward at Whiting Creek at Locust Hill and Broad Creek at Deltaville. The Southside Sentinel reports Middlesex County received a $70,000 grant from the Virginia Department of Conservation and Resources for the Whiting Creek project which requires a $38,000 county match. The Department of Conservation and Resources also approived a grant for the Broad Creek project. The General Assembly will need to allocate the funding before work can begin.
