HUMBOLDT BAY HARBOR, CA (KIEM) – Many North Coast residents rely on the Humboldt Bay Harbor Entrance and the resources that enter and leave the port.
The area has become so shallow that local organizations declared a state of emergency back in February. One portion of the entrance near Buoy Point Number 9 is only 13 feet deep. It is supposed to be 48 feet deep. The Army Corps of Engineers dredge the Harbor Entrance once a year. But this is the worst its been in a very long time.
Wednesday night at 6 & 11 our Leon Purvis will bring us his Special Report: Dredging at the Humboldt Bay Harbor Part: One, as he investigates the issues at the Harbor Entrance.
