Visitors to the Grand Haven State Park may see a pipe on the beach as river dredging has started in the area.

Approximately 55,000 cubic yards of sand is being removed from the mouth of the channel and deposited onto the Grand Haven State Park beach, helping replace some of the sand that has been washed away due to record-high Lake Michigan water levels.
