High water washes out break walls in Wellington; public access limited

Following last summer’s drought warnings, the County is dealing with damage from high water levels this spring.

Late Thursday afternoon, due to high water levels, the County partially sectioned off two recreational features in Wellington for the safety of residents.

A section of the Wellington Channel break wall has been closed to pedestrian access due to portions of the wall being washed out by high waters. The break wall is located on the west side of the channel, between the water and Main Wellington Beach. The channel, the beach, and the nearby boat launch are all still accessible.
Operations staff are working to repair the wall as quickly as possible.

Additionally, the southern end of Wellington Main Street Park has been closed due to damage to the Wellington Park sea wall’s foundation.

The southern part of the park will remain fenced off and no access will be allowed to the water.

The rest of the park, the playground, gazebo and bathrooms (which will open May 1st) will still be accessible.
