Dredging in the shallows of the West Arm of Kootenay Lake is set to begin September 24, and will last until November 30, 2019, reports the British Columbia government.

As reported, the Province will dredge three shallow areas in the West Arm of Kootenay Lake to ensure the long-term navigational safety of the Kootenay Lake Ferry Service.

Recent depth surveys have identified these shallow areas in the channel that impact safe navigation through the West Arm.

To ensure ongoing safety and reliability, dredging is required at these shallow points.

According to the release, once the dredging is completed, spring low water levels will no longer result in service disruptions to ferry users.

Material dredged from the shallows will be safely deposited in the main body of Kootenay Lake, as approved by all relevant regulatory bodies.
