The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Jacksonville has begun dredging operations within the St. Augustine Inlet Federal Channel.
About 120,000 cubic yards of beach-quality sand will be dredged from the channel and placed on the beach within Anastasia State Park. This dredging will restore the inlet down to the 16-foot authorized depth.
The dredging operation is being funded with money by the U.S. government to relieve impacts of Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
