Pelican Bay Marina Dredging Project Completed

The Pelican Bay Marina dredging project has been completed, according to the Utah Lake Commission.

The commission yesterday announced that the Saratoga Springs City Marina is now open.

Last year’s 26-year low water at Utah Lake left the City Marina high and dry, as well as the most other marinas in the area that were mostly inaccessible by mid-summer.

As a proactive city, Saratoga Springs decided to dredge 3-4 feet off the bottom of their marina to allow for improved access in the future even those low water years like 2016.

In the beginning the dredging works focused only inside the marina due to the spawning of the endangered June Sucker, which typically happens between April 10th to June 19th,” said Owen Jackson, Assistant City Manager of Saratoga Springs. After June 19th the dredging works continued outside the marina.

The total cost of the dredging and hauling off the material was $488,600.
