PortMiami Dredging Public Comment

Dredging Deja Vu - We need your voice to protect our reefs.


We need your help to stand up for Miami's reefs to protect them from dredging again-- AGAIN! Yes, that's right. We're as shocked as you are. 

We recently announced that our efforts secured the restoration of 10,000 threatened corals following the PortMiami dredging -- a huge victory for our reefs. 

But, what we didn't know was that the Corps didn't dredge deeply enough the first time around -- and they're coming back for more. That's right, the Port of Miami will be dredged AGAIN. 

We can't allow this to happen.

Stand with us and say "Enough!" Submit written comments to the Army Corps at CESAJ-MiamiHarbor@usace.army.mil and tell them what you think about their plan to dredge on top of our reefs. Read some of our talking points HERE! (We made it even easier for you.... click HERE for a letter template of what to send the Army Corps!)


We invite all of those who care about the status of our local reefs to submit public comments for the potential second dredging project at PortMiami. This helps the public process to aid in developing alternatives as well as information needed to evaluate alternatives. 

The final day to submit comments is November 26, 2018. Check the letter we submitted HERE.
