The Citizens Forum hosted a panel of:
- Engineers from the Woods Hole Group, the foremost experts on coastal preservation
- Barnstable County representatives, with decades of experience with dredging operations
- Local experts in Natural Resources, fishing and boating safety
We heard the latest word on the newly-formed Orleans Dredge Advisory Committee.
We had the opinions of those who depend on accessibility to the Atlantic to make their living.
And we gained an understanding of the technical, scientific, regulatory and financial challenges and the potential benefits associated with dredging.
Participants and audience members discussed what is likely to happen to Orleans and the surrounding areas if we do nothing?
