According to the City, Arbor Tree and Land, Inc. (ATL) will use mechanical dredging equipment to remove sediment from the Himmarshee Canal from SE 8 Avenue to SE 10 Terrace.

Crews will work from a barge in the canal to complete the dredging using the clamshell method. Sediment will be drained in a container aboard the barge before being loaded onto trucks that will take it to a landfill for proper disposal.

The City expects ATL to complete the dredging by the end of July.
