Army Corps' High Tech Scans of Lighthouse & Breakwater
Give Unusual Sonar View of Lighthouse and Rock Wall


While these sonar scans of Harbor of Refuge don't mean much to the average lighthouse lover, they'll make a significant contribution to our ability to stem the tide of damage to the breakwater wall. 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began work in March and expects to have a plan for repairs in place later this spring.

The Foundation has asked Congress to appropriate money during the 2009 Federal budget cycle to fix the worst of the damage to the wall.

The deteriorating 100+-year-old  breakwater is owned by the Federal Government.
