Army Corps discuss Wrightsville Beach dredging project

Posted by Debra Worley - email

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) - The Army Corps of Engineers is meeting to talk about when the dredging project at Wrightsville Beach and Masonboro Island will begin.

Many of the area beaches are eroding and need to be replenished every few years, but one couple with property on Banks Channel in Wrightsville Beach had threatened to file an injunction against the corps.

They say the beach along the channel might be eroding, because the corps pumps sands from there to other areas.

The Army Corps could decide Tuesday night when the dredging will begin.
