St. Maarten News – The St. Maarten Nature Foundation has been cooperating with the government, marinas and dredging companies on a Dredge Hole Remediation Project in the Simpson Bay Lagoon. Dredging can have significant environmental impacts on the environmental health of the lagoon, resulting in siltation, sedimentation and the removal of important seagrass beds critical to the lagoon’s already severely damaged health.
