The slip at the house I am considering is too shallow for my boat. Can I dredge it?

Maybe. Typically the County will issue permits for dredging to the “historical depth” and if there is no sub aquatic vegetation (“SAV”) that will be destroyed. You also need to consider if tides and currents will quickly fill in the area you just dredged. We work with several people that specialize in dredging and pier permits. In some cases it may be cheaper, simpler, and more permanent to just extend your pier into deeper water.

Testimonials Joe and the Mr. Waterfront Team were immensely helpful and knowledgeable. Joe was pleasant to be with and generous with his time. We relied on his advice, it was impeccable. We weren't that knowledgeable about the local area and waterfront homes, but he was an expert and helped us decide and buy a truly beautiful home. Ray B, Lake Path, Crownsville read more...
