- The Association:
The Association was formed in 1987 from the efforts of over 400 founding members. The concern was about the closure of the north channel of the bay by shifting sand. This resulted in loss of boat access, poor water quality, weed growth, and the creation of a marshy, stagnant body of water.
In 1989 the break wall was built and the channel dredged for an initial cost of $320,000. Since then, further dredging has been carried out on almost an annual basis to maintain the channel.
Bald Head island was used as a bombing range in the 1940's. Ongoing concerns are the removal of unexploded bombs by the Department of National Defense, to make the Bay safe.
