With $800,000 approved by Westport’s Representative Town Meeting (RTM) Tuesday night, the restoration and stabilization of the Ned Dimes Marina’s south side should begin in late fall, Parks & Recreation Director Stuart McCarthy said today.
McCarthy noted that the southern banks have collapsed into the water, hindering boats.
“This is due to years of erosion,” he said.
He said the project will require dredging, as well as the installation of a boulder riprap to keep the shoreline stable. The silt buildup had gotten so bad that small boats could not be launched there, McCarthy said.
