This video provides a narrated visual update on the ongoing Marco Island, FL Tigertail Lagoon and Sand Dollar Island Beach Dredging and Restoration Project, which aims to restore the area to its pre-hurricane Irma condition.
The video showcases aerial views of the progress made so far, including the removal of over 417,000 cubic yards of sand and the reopening of critical waterways. The project is crucial for the health of the ecosystem and the protection of endangered species.
The video also discusses the reasons for the dredging and restoration, including the need to prevent subsequent wash overs and blockage issues in the channel during future storms. Please share your thoughts on whether the project is a worthwhile effort or a waste of time and money.
