Earlier this month, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began dredging the Snohomish River Federal Navigation Channel.

The project includes maintenance clamshell dredging of the lower settling basin and the Snohomish River Federal Navigation Channel that will improve commercial vessel navigation in the area.

The volume of sediment to be dredged is approximately 200,000 cubic yards with disposal by bottom dump scow at the Port Gardner Open Water PSDDA disposal site.

According to the Corps’ Seattle District, all in-water work will be completed by 14 February 2019.
