Lake Tashmoo

2018

After some discussion, Tisbury selectmen voted to sign a dredging agreement with Edgartown to clear the Tashmoo channel at a meeting Thursday evening.

Boosted by the recent announcement of a state grant, a project to dredge the Tashmoo channel this fall appeared to be nearing reality this week.

With handshakes and a few selfies, Gov. Charlie Baker joined Tisbury selectmen for the formal opening of the Lake Street landing.

Impassable for some boats at low tide, the channel at Lake Tashmoo could be dredged this summer. But first there is red tape to untangle.

An accumulation of sand, silt and neglected paperwork have rendered the entrance to Lake Tashmoo impassable at times.

Permitting issues and financial constraints have posed obstacles to long-planned improvements at Lake Tashmoo, but work is now set to be completed by spring.
