The City of Yerington dredging project is funded from a $1.2 million grant the city received from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), which is the administrator of the federally-funded Walker River Basin Restoration Project.
This dredging project is nearing completion, with an operations test of the dredging equipment and system slated for Thursday morning, according to RGJ.com.
The project includes installation of the dredge, construction of settling ponds and placement of a sand classifier, sand screw and radial stacker, plus installation of power to the dredge site, extended from the city sewer plant to the dredge site near the Weir on property owned by Circle Bar N Ranch.
According to project engineer Farr West Engineering, the Yerington dredging project is scheduled to continue for nine months.
