Miami Beach Approves Funding to Start Dredging Clogged Waterways
The $250,000 of funding approved by the city commission will go towards the first phase of the project – planning and design.
MIAMI BEACH, FLORIDA – The Miami Beach Commission recently approved $250,000 to begin dredging Collins Canal and Biscayne Point Waterway. Sediment build up in the area creates shallow spots that restricts boats from being able to navigate.
Sediment in the water has been an issue in the area for nearly three decades and lack of sufficient funds has caused of years of delay in dredging efforts.
