More Dredging Work at Jeffrey Reservoir

The Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District’s board of directors approved payment of an invoice at its monthly board meeting that will extend dredging activities at Jeffrey Reservoir until August 7.

Gothenburg Division Manager Kevin Boyd told the board that dredging at the lake near Brady has been proceeding satisfactorily and that the extension of the lease agreement for the dredge will enable removal of additional sediment.

Central initiated dredging activities in early May for what was intended to be a three-month project to improve the lake’s operational, recreational and aquatic habitat aspects.

Silt and sediment accumulations in the lake over the past 75 years had reached the point that dredging became necessary.

Central leased a specially-designed dredge from SRS Crisafulli of Glendive, Mont., for the project, with an option to purchase at the end of the lease period.

The lease extension provides Central with additional time to evaluate the project’s impact and to make a decision on whether or not to buy the dredge.
