Congressman Tim Bishop held a press event Friday morning to publicly thank all those involved in making the dredging of Mattituck Inlet a reality — from U.S. Army Corps of Engineers officials, to Southold Town representatives, to the McGreevys, a local couple that spent more than a decade pushing for the project.

“The improved depth and width will provide for safer navigation through the Mattituck Inlet, which is important for both commercial fishing and recreational fishing,” Mr. Bishop said. “And, perhaps as important, it will restore the shoreline to the east of the inlet which has become very badly eroded.
