Harbors Hope To Complete Dredging

Two harbors would be dredged if proposed budget passes.

VENTURA, Calif. -

Dredging in Ventura Harbor hasn't been fully funded since 2008.

But that could change if President Barack Obama's budget passes.

The Ventura Harbor is in the midst of dredging but needs more to allow fishing boats to get in and out.

Channel Islands needs more dredging too. Dredging in Oxnard helps deliver sand to Port Hueneme where beach erosion is a problem.

More sand built up in the harbors during recent rains and beach erosion got worse near the pier in Port Hueneme.
