Silt Project Aimed For In Wake

In a bid to combat silt accumulation at Mill Creek boat ramp in Wake, the Middlesex County Board of Supervisors voted 3-1 to pursue a grant-backed project aimed at maintaining access to the vital waterway. The project, supported by the Middle Peninsula Regional Planning District Commission, seeks to extend dredging intervals and explore constructing an artificial reef. The decision, passed without full commission attendance, and it underscores efforts to secure state funding and community support amidst rising maintenance costs. Further deliberations are expected to determine the project’s feasibility and community impact.
