Anticipated 2004 dredging of Nahcotta mooring basin to save up to 165 area jobs

<I>KEVIN HEIMBIGNER photo</I><BR>Oyster workers make the Port of Peninsula a hectic place, but that activity has been threatened by the deteriorating depth of the Nahcotta mooring basin.

NAHCOTTA - Approximately 111,000 cubic yards of sediment need to be removed from the Nahcotta mooring basin, and up to 165 area jobs are dependent upon the project's success.

Port of Peninsula Manager Howard Teague is in the late stages of slicing through a wave of governmental red tape in order to get the dredging underway by July 2004.
