Tuesday October 9 2012 A group of LEHT Osborne Island residents have received permits from DEP for dredging in the area. The Osborn Island Residents Association spent four years and about $80,000 to secure the permits from DEP and the Army Corps to dredge about 12,000 cubic yards of sediment from their lagoons. The shallow conditions have made for treacherous boating in the area. (The Press of Atlantic City / Ben Fogletto)
