Dredging operations have been taking place in Salmon Harbor, Winchester Bay, over the last week, opening up more room for vessels to navigate the bay and get into the Umpqua River, The Umpqua Post informs. 

The dredging program, conducted by J.E. McAmis from Longview, Washington, is focused on a several areas of Salmon Harbor.

According to Paul Staffard, harbor manager of Salmon Harbor, the crews are working to clear the navigable channels on the east and west basins. The dredging works will also be undertaken around Breakwater, the commercial dock, and at the end of A Dock, the transient boats dock.

Upon completion, boats and larger vessels will have an easier time travelling around the area, said The Umpqua Post.

The dredging scheme is expected to be completed by Saturday, August 10.
