Protecting the Bay and the Spit for Generations to Come
Save Popponesset Bay
Sept. 5, 2016
So long Summer and welcome to storm season. Today's storm is Tropical Storm Hermine and we'll have 5-7 foot waves hitting the Spit. The Spit remains vulnerable in several areas, and we hope our new dunes will hold up without much reinforcement. We will update you on any damage sustained and our plans over the Winter.
This is a good chance to reinforce why we need to raise more money this season for our Capital project. We are currently making great progress but repairing or reinforcing the Spit can only take place once we have adequate funds. The ideal state of the Spit is to have a high dune with lots of grass and a gradual slope to the waterline. We currently have a well constructed high dune with grass but do not have enough money to build up the beach yet.
Please make a tax-deductible contribution today so we can take advantage of the upcoming Winter dredge.
