EPA Gives Emergency OK To Katama Bay Project

The state Department of Environmental Protection has granted emergency authorization to Edgartown, to allow dredging in Katama Bay.

The purpose is to help repair the dunes along South Beach, along with the replacement of lifeguard facilities and the rental of a temporary operations center.

Select Board members declared a state of emergency earlier this month, in the wake of coastal storms that damaged and eroded the south-facing beaches.

The estimated cost is more than one and three-quarter million dollars.

Funding from the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency has not yet been approved.
