Dredging of Big Carlos Pass
The Town has been advised that beginning on May 15, 2017, Lee County Division of Natural Resources is coordinating with the West Coast Inland Navigation District to perform dredging of Big Carlos Pass due to sand shortage in the Critical Wildlife Area. This project and the equipment being used to perform the work are permitted to be on site by the State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The safety of nesting shorebirds and sea turtles will be monitored on a daily basis by local and state environmental agencies for the duration of this project. If anyone in the public has questions about the project, please contact Lee County Division of Natural Resources at 239-533-8109 or West Coast Inland Navigation District at 941-485-9402.
