TANGIER, Va. – Aerial imagery of the Uppards portion of Tangier Island shows a breach where waters from the Chesapeake Bay flow into interior portions of the land. Each time a dredging occurs the Norfolk District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, uses dredged material gathered from the navigation channel at the island to help plug the breach.
