Spreading sands

Work crews from Florida Dock & Dredge spread sand dredged from Bimini Bay, then pumped north to renourish the Tampa Bay shoreline by the Anna Maria City Pier. The pumping operation was to move north, between the pier and the Lake LaVista Inlet, once job wraps up on the south side of the pier. The project is funded by a West Coast Inland Navigation District grant to keep the Bimini Bay pass open for marine navigation, and the city requested the pumped material for the shoreline. A WCIND press release said the project, which began Feb. 9, should be completed in two weeks, and at no cost to the city. Islander Photo: Rick Catlin
