Today I finally figured out what the big construction project is that is happening very close to our favorite anchoring spot!
For a year or two there has been a sizable construction project going on just west near Cedar Beach cove.
It is part of a new 2.6 mile wastewater outfall tunnel / pipeline which will bring treated effluent (water clean enough to reintroduce into the environment) out into the Atlantic Ocean.
Since I was a young boy when Senator Ed Muskie D-ME got the Clean Water Act passed into law (and the Clean Air Act) I have marveled at how good-for-business the environmental movement has been. Of course it has also been good for public health and quality of life!
It is GREAT to know that this big construction project is a clean water initiative! Makes my day!
Bergin Point WWTP, walking distance from our home.
This nautical chart (NOAA 12326) shows where the Bergen Point WWTP is located, where the construction site is for the new 10ft diameter pipeline-tunnel, and where the outfall is out to sea.
