The 2016 maint enance dredging project removed approximately 15,000 cubic yards of sand from the inlet channel and flood shoal areas and an additional 5,000 cubic yards were graded to simulate natural shoreline transitions along inlet banks. The maintenance dredging is designed to restore tidal flow above critical hydraulic stability levels and improve inlet resiliency to withstand storm events. Since the maintenance project was completed, the pass has weathered the most active tropical season since 2012. Clam Pass was directly impacted by two tropical storms during the 2016 trop-ical season, Colin and Her-mine. Tropical Storm Colin transited offshore heading north in the Gulf of Mexico June 5 and 6, 2016. Subse-quently, the outer bands of Tropical Storm (later Hur-ricane) Hermine lashed the Gulf Coast in the first days of September. The storm winds, surge and waves pushed more sediment into the pass than the tidal flow can push back during the duration of each storm. The inlet resiliency relies on inlet ability to move within its dynamic range around the formed ebb and flood shoal deltas that shelter the inlet mouth from wave-driven sand accumulation. The post storm recovery observed following the past storms was evident. The recently completed main-tenance dredging increased the inlet capacity to accu-mulate storm driven sand while the increased capacity of tidal flow post dredg-ing enab l ed t he pass to continued on page 3 BEACH STORE “GRAB AND GO” MENU Ham & Cheese Sub Roast Beef & Cheese Sub Turkey & Cheese Sub Chicken Salad Croissant Cobb Salad Chef Salad Caesar Salad Veggie Wrap Turkey Cheese Wrap Chicken Caesar Wrap Royal Scoop Homemade Ice Cream Various snack items and beverages The Pelican Bay Foundation, Inc. 6251 Pelican Bay Blvd. Naples, FL 34108
