Winona Dredging Starts Next Week

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, has just announced that they will be dredging the Winona Small Boat Harbor next week, September 12.

The small boat harbor, located at Upper Mississippi River mile 726.1, is the non-federal sponsor for the project and has provided a suitable placement site for any dredged material.

USACE is authorized to maintain the small boat harbor to a depth of 5 feet below the low control pool. Since 1990, the Winona Small Boat Harbor has been dredged 14 times.

The Corps usually dredges the small boat harbor to 6 feet in order to prolong the need for future operations and to help provide enough clearance for dredging.

For this year, the Corps is planning to complete the dredging operations September 15.

The Corps also announced that the work will take place during daylight hours only, urging boaters to avoid the area if possible or to use extreme caution when navigating around the dredging equipment.
