The purpose of the Salt Water Catch Basin is to remove sand from building up in the passes and channels and keep the waterways navigable. It also provides a way to re-nourish the sand loss from our beaches due to erosion and storms. Dredging is far more costly and it is often necessary to re-dredge far sooner than projections.

A pipeline dredge operating in a navigation channel will obstruct water traffic, create noise pollution and is not aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Additionally, current studies link dredging to increased red tide blooms which result in a loss of tourism dollars that would help stimulate our economy.
