A pilot program to dredge approximately 1000 feet near McClintock’s westerly ski run was tested in 2000. From 2001 – 2006 no dredging was done (unable to get permits from various government services).

Dredging took place from 2007 to 2009 with a minimal amount of success using the 1000 foot discharge pipe method. In 2013 a different concept, and equipment was used, a barge, (dredger) and a tug boat were now able to go into various areas around the lake (if the water level could support the barge’s 5 foot draft). This meant no long pipe behind the dredger limiting the distance it could travel. 2015 has been the most successful year to date. 2016 will be the year for removal of lake sediment which has been stored at McCormick’s Point since 2013.
