several of us witnessed and spoke to some guys from the city today that were getting some readings for the channel to be dredged...

it was stated yesterday that the city has $600k to do some of the channel, don't know when or how much or where in the channel yet, but the money is there...

That's great to hear. What's the price for dredging? Are they going to use excavators or a boat to dredge? I apologize for the potential tangent I may start lol but has there or is there any talk of dredging the mouth of the river? I love the excuse to fly across the water at that section but a vector has a relativaly (sp) shalllow keel compared to you guys running 27 + boats.

Dredging the river mouth would be the responsibility of the Army Corps of Engineers. Since there's no "commerce" to speak of on that portion of the Colorado River, it would have zero priority for ACOE projects.

As long as the Bureau Of Reclamation puts:

ALL RIVER USERS should remember that fluctuating river flows may conceal or create natural hazards such as moving sandbars, gravel bars, unstable riverbanks, floating or submerged debris, or other unfamiliar obstacles. Caution should be exercised while using the river between Davis Dam and the Mexican Border at San Luis, Arizona.
at the end of their River Operations schedule, They're covered.

I thought City Guy said a couple days ago on here that the money that was to be used for dredging the channel got pulled or something like that?

thats finally some good news !!!!, cause the channel needs one hellava ennema !!!!!
I would be suprised if it gets done before the end of the year. Its has been interesting though, water levels so high that we cant park in the channel means no need to dredge... then someone mentions wasting money to redo the sea wall and push it back... quite the difference there...

the guys today that we talked to I think said the deepest spots were 14-20 feet deep. Obviously there are places its nowhere near that... I dont have a depth finder, but maybe some here does and could share what they have encountered (just curious).

I have seen depths in the channel from 10-12ft on my bluewater gauge but never 20ft.

The sweeping of the SLIF was only a temporary thing, and was said that it would return in a year or two. Rent a Ring was looking like 10yrs or more to raise the money IF the city survived the lawsuits from mooring damages. It would appear that some of the SLIF got returned in the new AZ, budget...and the city's out to make sure they get a chance to spend it before it gets swepped away again;)

oh Charlie, how is it that the city does not need to follow it's own building code with the sea wall. it's in violation of
IRC-2006-312.1 Guard rails for more than 30" rise
IRC-2006-311.5.6 Hand rails required for (4) or more treads

who do I send the RED TAG to:p:D
so fair is fair right...you guys have 30 days to repair it or remove ithil:)
