Alamitos Bay Dredging Project is Fun to Watch!

Grandpa Ron and I went for a long walk in Long Beach last Saturday. We spent quite a while watching the dredging operation scooping mud up from the bottom of the Alamitos Bay onto a waiting barge for use in a new Long Beach container complex. The Long Beach Press Telegram reported that 63,000 cubic yards of sediment are to be cleared with two-thirds of it going to the Port of Long Beach. Here’s an article I found from the Contra Costa Times written by Long Beach Press-Telegram Staff Writer Joe Segura. Here’s my short video – complete with a child’s expressed delight in getting a huge splosh of mud flying everywhere! The operator was obviously having his own fun with us! 🙂
