Dredge spoils moved to East Chop


The much maligned dredge spoils, stored at the Oak Bluffs town cemetery after citizen outcry led to its removal from Inkwell Beach, has apparently found a final resting place. According to highway department supervisor Richard Combra, the material will be moved to an area of shoreline along East Chop to provide soil for beach grass. Mr. Combra said property owners will pay to transport the material.

Regarding the remaining dredge spoils at the Inkwell, Mr. Combra said that most of the material has been moved and due to the heavy use of the beach during the summer, it wouldn’t be practical to close it down for any length of time to remove more sand.
