Vol XV # 352 - Meggen's Monday
Vol XV # 354 - After 9 AM It Was Not Nice Out

A study to revise/add jetties seems like a good idea. I don’t believe Frankfort necessitates dredging frequencies that Leland does.

Studies are relatively inexpensive.

The sand would accumulate as it does along the harbor’s south breakwater that is parallel to the river in Fishtown. The sand that collects along the new jetty could be managed with bulldozers and backhoes as needed and relocated elsewhere. Anytime you try to manage a shoreline there is always the… Read more »

The dark blue shows the area that might allow a boat to pass through.
The white or gray show the build up of sand or silt. Per the picture, the pass to the harbor appears to be narrow.


Can someone explain the photo of the Harbor? Is the dark part shallow or deep. Signed, I know nothing about this.

Dark parts are deeper than light parts. Darker is better

So we would call to request funding for dredging? or what?
