Dredging of Humboldt Bay has become an undeniably urgent matter, and Samoa Beach has been proposed as the best disposal option. We support dredging the marinas and agree that it is urgent, but dumping on one of our most popular beaches would impact public access and create visual blight. Attend this public meeting to support alternative options to dumping on Samoa Beach.
May 3 at 5:30 pm at the Wharfinger Building, 1 Marina Way in Eureka.
On April 26, state and federal permitting agencies met with the Harbor District and City of Eureka to discuss options for dredging the marinas and where the spoils will be dumped. We'll know more next week, but for now, mark your calendar for this important opportunity for public input.
