provide access from Aunt Lydia's Cove to the southern end of the flood ramp.
The eastern channel had naturally re-established a navigable passage along the
eastern side of Chatham Harbor to Pleasant Bay. The large ebb shield at the
northern end of the flood shoal was restricting the flow up the estuary, and a large
ebb-orientated spillover lobe formed at about the same location as the former west
channel prior to the breach.
