KK River Dredging

I received a copy of the EPA letter on the dredging operation in the KK River.  The quick summary:
  1. Dredging will take from mid-May until November
  2. The river will be dredged from the Becher street bridge down to KK Avenue to a depth of 21 feet in the middle and 11 feet at the banks
  3. The river will be closed from on or about May 14th for four days to commence operations
  4. After that the river will be open from 9 a.m. to 1 p. m. each day for recreational boats, it will be closed the rest of the time for dredging.
It sounds like it will not be too bad and the advantage of a deep river for spring launch and fall storage should be worth the pain.
