The Coast Guard will soon remove buoys from some of the region's shallow-draft inlets in the wake of Hurricane Irene, and they won't be put back until dredging is completed.

But dredging won't begin for at least three to six weeks while agreements for the work are hammered out, said Harry Simmons, executive director of the N.C. Beach, Inlet and Waterway Commission.

The area's shallow-draft inlets include New River, New Topsail, Carolina Beach and Lockwood Folly. The Cape Fear River mouth and Masonboro Inlet are maintained under different programs with different pots of money.

No surprise that Masonboro Inlet isn't on that list.

I do love our jetty.
