Dredging continues in the Swinomish

Progress continues in dredging the Swinomish Channel.

Dredging the Swinomish - one bucket at a time

Dredging began in the Swinomish Channel last September.   The Channel links Skagit Bay at the south and Padilla Bay on the north, and is where the town of La Conner, Washington is located.  La Conner and the Swinomish is also the home of American Tug.

The Swinomish Channel receives heavy vessel traffic all winter when it is the only safe & calm route between Puget Sound and areas to the north when the Straits of Juan de Fuca are rough.  This is a very popular route for the American Tug fleet, in fact every AT has been sea-trialed on these waters.

The Army Corps of Engineers is overseeing American Construction and the $2.2 million contract.  They are using a very large clamshell bucket to fill the drop barge "Lummi Island", the barge is moved and dumped a couple of times per day.

Full information on the project can be found on the Army Corps of Engineers website.
