    Edgewater Marsh Area March 29 2018 10AM West Island Weather Station drone operations. Rising tide cycles are increasing at an alarming rate where Sconticut Neck could become an island itself requiring a causeway. A federal climate science assessment recently concluded that a rise in sea level of one to four feet within a century is likely. Ask any local, they are taking notice. This video was taken at low tide. A recent video clip taken down the end of Edgewater St - the necks lowest point - illustrates how low this area already is at sea level

    SUNRISE at The West Island State Reservation Friday - April 27, 2018 at 558AM. The temperature was 48.3 with a gentle breeze out of the west-southwest at 1.5MPH. The humidity was 92%. The ocean in Buzzards Bay read 50.5 degrees. We sent our drone up slowly to 400ft aiming east to Falmouth as the sun came up through some broken overcast. Some minor weather action passing through, however Summer like heat is expected to make headlines next week. ML's Note: 15 Years ago today, Buzzards Bay, West Island and Mattapoisett would soon be devasted by a major oil spill. Birds and wildlife would die in front of helpless onlookers along the shore.

    Jack's Cove and Long Island featured in our continuing series of drone flights over West Island last year. This footage shot on May 21, 2017 at about 280 feet. Over 50 miles of flight time over the summer last year in this area brought some great video when the weather cooperated. *ML's Note: Considering how neglected the waters are in other countries, you can't appreciate enough how clean our bay is. Hoppy's Landing was devasted by a massive plume of oil on this 15th Anniversary of The 2003 Oil Spill - April 28, 2003.

Wilbur Point has a large fresh water pond that once was used to make ice for the local grocery store. In the pre-WW II days, residents had many large goldfish in the pond. On the top center, Cuttyhunk Island is visible 13 miles away. Angelica Island is visible at the end of Wilbur Point.

    A new automated pay meter for parking, more picnic tables, clam shell resurfacing, and rehab of the shack centered on Long Island are in the works, according to Fairhaven Harbormaster Tim Cox. *ML's Note: Drone footage and video for westislandweather.com Hoppy's Landing construction June 2008. Long Island, Fairhaven, MA MLBaron File Video By CHARIS ANDERSON Standard-Times Posted Jul. 18, 2008 @ 12:25 am FAIRHAVEN ? The construction project at Hoppy's Landing, originally slated to be completed by the end of June, has been granted a 40-day extension. "It was a compressed timeline," Town Planner William Roth said of the initial project schedule. "You always hit snags." The project, funded through a $386,000 grant from the state's Seaport Advisory Council, includes an 80-foot fixed pier, a floating dock and a boat ramp. The fixed pier has been constructed, and workers are preparing to pour concrete for the ramp over the next couple weeks, Mr. Roth said. The steel float is being made in Rhode Island and will be barged to Hoppy's Landing when it is finished, he said. Delays in the project's schedule were caused by "unforeseen things," Mr. Roth said, such as boulders that had to be removed and bedrock in the area of the boat ramp that was shallower than expected. The project's scope is also being expanded to include some dredging. There is a hump of dirt at the end of the boat ramp, Mr. Roth said, so the town is filing for a change order and permits to remove it. "Why have a boat ramp with a speed hump in front of it?" he asked. "We're trying to do the right thing. It's just going to take a little more time." The town has hired an electrician to run power to the end of the pier, Mr. Roth said. A light and a power outlet will be installed. "We just think that, upon further review ... the most prudent thing to do was run power to the end of the pier," he said. Although the changes could affect the overall project costs, the project is still within its budget, according to Mr. Roth. "Every project has contingency built in. We are well within our contingency."

    EVERY 90 SECONDS A CHRISTMAS TREE WILL BE CUT Fairhaven - Since 2001, The Douglass Family Annual Christmas Tree Sale down the end of Sconticut Neck Road, Fairhaven, MA will get underway December 9 and 10th. Buyers can choose and cut the tree of their choice., or it can be cut for you. "The tree farm was started to restore the land to an agricultural use and to provide a retirement job. There was a grand but undefined plan to use some of the proceeds for charitable causes but we were thinking of scholarships or food banks. When we became aware of ALS TDI and their mission and how it could impact our family, it was a no-brainer." Dick Douglass *ML's Note: A drought last year halted sales. A first time look from the Douglass Tree Farm from the air shows the wide expanse of healthy trees available this season.

  • King Tide November 15 2016

    The King Tide was merciful this Tuesday morning at the high tide cycle at 8AM, November 15, 2016. The yards, under water, are part of the properties that abutt Almond St - on the west shoreline of West Island. Full Moon tides are at their highest this time in the Fall and around the first week of Spring when the sun and moon exert a double gravitational pull, creating higher tides than usual. Add a storm system with a southerly wind direction, and tidal surges can get much worse along Southern Mass and Buzzards Bay. The hurricane barrier has been busy with scheduled closings and very likely will continue over the next few cycles.
