Haley: Dredging Sea Pines good for tourism

Posted: Updated:

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. (AP) - Gov. Nikki Haley says that dredging the Harbour Town Yacht Basin and other waterways at Sea Pines Plantation on Hilton head Island is good boats and business.

The Island Packet of Hilton Head reports that Haley visited Hilton Head Island on Wednesday for what she called a celebration of getting permits for the dredging work.

It's been almost a decade since the yacht basin at Harbour Town and other nearby waterways have been dredged.

Haley says finishing the project will allow boats to pass more easily and remove an impediment to business on the island. Officials hope to have the dredging done in time for next year's RBC Heritage golf tournament so large yachts can again call at Harbour Town during the tournament.
