For over 30 years, the Bay Planning Coalition has been working to ensure that the channels and harbors of our region are able to be dredged to adequate navigation depths.
Join us on November 12th to hear from some of Bay Area’s leading experts on dredging and the beneficial reuse of dredged materials.
