As most in the Jonesport-Beals area know, the Army Corps of Engineers led dredging project of Barney’s Cove and Pig Island Gut is in full swing. The dredging will continue over the period of several months. During those several months, the project will dredge approximately 100,000 cubic yards of clay, silt, and sand. They will also be removing 30 tons of heavy boulders and old mooring rocks. The dump site is just to the western side of the Black Rocks.
