Good news on the Kent Narrows shoaling problem! While a new marker setup was finally installed in August or so, I was recently copied on a letter from the Corps regarding the preparation of an environmental document for a project that will dredge the north channel. This maintenance dredging is to remove materials to a depth of 7' MLLW plus one or two feet of allowable overdepth. The material will be placed behind "pre-constructed" breakwaters to create tidal wetlands on the spit of land to the west of the channel - it's part of the Ferry Point Habitat Restoration Project designed by local sponsors of which Queen Anne's County Parks/DPW is the lead. No dates in the letter, but it's good news and progress.
