Dredging forum scheduled in New Jersey

The Cape May County Chamber of Commerce in New Jersey will host a forum on dredging Oct. 19.

The Cape May County Chamber of Commerce in New Jersey will host a forum on dredging Oct. 19 at Stone Harbor Golf Club with U.S. Rep. Frank LoBiondo, R-N.J., as the keynote speaker.

When the chamber hosted a fishing forum in April, dredging issues were identified as the leading concern.

The October event, which takes place from 5:30-8 p.m., will address threats to business, industry and lifestyles dependent on navigable waterways and the search for solutions.

Marie Hayes, a member of the Cape May County Board of Chosen Freeholders and a former marina owner, will moderate the event. Hayes will lead two paneldiscussions targeting federal and state regulatoryissues affecting private marinas, municipalities and waterfront homeowners.

Representatives from the state Department of Environmental Protection, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Stockton Coastal Research Center also will speak during a panel discussion. Several speakers will address the group in a session titled “The Impact Now” in a 45-minute session.

The event will wrap up with a question-and-answer session.
