Hydraulic dredging of the Snohomish River upstream and downstream settling basins will begin Oct. 15. A U.S. Army Corps of Engineers contractor will remove about 100,000 cubic yards of material from the upstream basin and place it on City of Everett property. About 79,000 cubic yards of materials will be dredged from the downstream basin and beneficially used to nourish two areas on Jetty Island.
