The beach at the north end of Plum Island is being impacted by erosion of the river side of the south jetty and erosion control efforts are underway. Some trails for accessing the waterfront will have to be closed off. Another site visit is scheduled for 1 pm on June 30th. We have this information from the town of Newburyport:
“Regarding the site visit, we hope to lead a tour of the area in late June so folks can see the mobi-mats, signs, and beach access trail maps we’re creating. We’ll be available to answer questions in person and talk about the work that has occurred, the process we followed, and potential next steps”.
It is important that members of the fishing community attend and present our point of view. Please make an effort to attend if you fish this area.
