1,8 million euros Investment in the Lagoon of Obidos
The portuguese Government has just approved and ordered sand dredging in the Lagoon of Obidos, located in Foz do Arelho - Silver Coast.
The project is meant to take about 6 months ending before the Summer of 2012, the sand will be used to extend the beach extension and make it possible for the connection between the Atlantic Ocean and the Lagoon to work propertly.
In total it is expected to remove 350.000 cubic metres of sand and the operations will start until the end of this month (November, 2011)
It is good to know that despite the economic crisis, the Government is concerned about the situation of the Lagoon of Obidos.
The connection between the Atlantic Ocean is crucial to the survival of the eco-system and preservation of the fish habitat.
There are large amount of families that earn their income with the fishing activities in the Lagoon which would be in risk if this investment did not happen now!
