All Set for Maintenance Dredging of Cumberland River

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Nashville District announced yesterday that maintenance dredging of the Cumberland River will begin January 9, 2017.

According to the Corps, channel maintenance is set at the river mile 102-104 near Cumberland City Island January 9 through March 31, 2017.

During the works, around 250,000 CY of dredge material will be removed from the navigational channel.
