Dredging to Begin in Everett Harbor,
Snohomish River

Mariners should be mindful of the maintenance dredging expected to take place next week in Everett Harbor and Snohomish River.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Port of Everett are partnering on dredging the area’s lower channel and settling basin, which is set to start on Dec. 9, according to the port.

J.E. McAmis of Chico, California, has been contracted by the Army Corps of Engineers to do the work, which involves dredging roughly 65,000 cubic yards of material from the lower channel and about 100,000 cubic yards from the lower settling basin.

Mariners in the area should tread carefully and pass on the marina side of the dredge. They should also be mindful of the rig markings. The work will take place around the clock and is expected to be done by mid-February, the port said.
