Dredging operations for the Norriego Point Stabilization project will begin in early March, starting in Destin Harbor. The harbor dredging will take approximately two weeks then the dredge will move to the northern most reach of the East Pass Federal Channel (north of the bridge) and work its way south toward the pass. This operation will take approximately 45 to 60 days.
IMPORTANT: It is recommended that livery vessel businesses prominently display the illustration and make every renter aware of what is taking place in the harbor, pass and bay. The illustration can be used to educate everyone on the water regarding what they will see. Every effort should be taken to stay away from the operation and the floating pipes.
For a detailed update on the project, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection will be present at the Feb. 20, 2018, city council meeting to provide an update to the council. This is a public meeting and anyone interested is encouraged to attend.
