Wenatchee Dredging on the Way

The Wenatchee’s Riverfront Park boat ramp in Washington will close on September 30 for about seven weeks due to a dredging project, Chelan County PUD informs. 

There is just a short time each fall when Chelan PUD can do work in the Columbia River, said Ryan Baker, Parks manager.

“We wanted to get the word out now so boaters can plan for using other nearby launches during the work,” Baker said. “We understand that fall is a great time for being on the river, and we appreciate the community’s patience during this work to improve the launch.”

The scheme includes removal of a significant amount of sediment from the boat basin so the launch is accessible at lower river levels, a new fish-friendly dock, and extension of the eroded launch ramp.

For safety, the parking lot at the launch will close, Chelan County PUD said. Contractor KRCI of Wenatchee will use the lot to stage materials and park big equipment.

The work is expected to cost around $602,000.
