Earthmover Dredges Beach to Open Hamptons Bay to the Sea

An earthmover worked to dredge sand from a beach in Water Mill, New York.

Drone video taken by Joanna Steidle from Hamptons Drone Images shows the diggers moving sand to help the bay connect with the ocean.

The work to open the bay is part of an over 400-year tradition to help the salinity of the lake and help prevent flooding of local residences, according to a local report. Credit: Hamptons Drone Images via Storyful
