USA: Sludge Slows Wares Creek Dredging

Sludge Slows Wares Creek Dredging

The dredging at Wares Creek has brought up more wet, sludgy material than engineers had expected, according to bradenton.com.

Sia Mollanazar, a county public works engineer, said that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to ask the county June 5 to consider some reduction of its landfill fees in order to dispose of much more sludgy matterial than was anticipated.

Mollanazar acknowledged that the situation has slowed work, but said dredging has not stopped at the creek, which courses through downtown Bradenton before emptying into the Manatee River.

The Corps hopes reduced fees at the county’s Lena Road landfill will keep the overall cost of the project in control without hampering operations at the landfill, Mollanazar concluded.
