Now I will admit I am not familiar with dredging and I do not live directly on a lagoon, but many in our neighborhood do live on various lagoons. It appears from doing some research that dredging may be needed to clean area lagoons, especially since the affects of Superstorm Sandy several years ago.

Taking a look at an article by the Sandpaper, dredging would help clean and clear area lagoons and add to home value along these lagoons. The dredging itself is expensive and once the debris (silt) is removed there is the question of where it should then be removed to. I cannot tell from the article whether all residents are on board for dredging so I would be curious to see what YOU think and have to say about then process. I have seen “we support dredging” signs around the area, are there those who do not support the dredging?

If you live on lagoon home and you have had dredging done what was your experience? Would you be in favor or did your experience leave you disappointed with dredging?

 

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
