According to the plan, approximately 2,000 cubic yards of material will be mechanically dredged using a barge and crane.

Additional barge “scows” will be utilized to dewater the material, which will then be transferred for off-site upland disposal.

Navigation in Mitchell River and through the Mitchell River Bridge will be kept clear for vessels during the approximately three weeks the work will take place, the Town said.
