Channel Islands Harbor Receives $15 Million for Dredging Project

On April 25, 2022, Congresswoman Julia Brownley presented the County of Ventura and Ventura County Harbor Department Director Michael Tripp with a ceremonial check for $15 million for the bi-annual maintenance dredging of the Channel Islands Harbor.

This critical funding will meet the dredging needs at Channel Islands Harbor, which is instrumental to keeping the harbor open for industries that drive our local economy, including our fisheries and tourism industries.

These funds will also help to replenish local beaches and address coastal erosion at Naval Base Ventura County.
