Suisun City to dredge silt from waterway

By Ian Thompson

SUISUN CITY - The accumulation of silt that has bedeviled larger boats in the Suisun City Marina and in Whispering Bay will be dredged this fall, according to Suisun City's public works and recreation departments.

That is good news to larger boat owners such as Don Sefcik, who now has to wait for the tide to rise to tie up his boat near the Solano Yacht Club.

Sefcik recently attempted to berth his vessel during low tide only to discover 3 feet from the dock 'that the keel was in the mud and I had to wait for three hours until the tide went up.'

Buoys set out by the harbor master mark off the worst spots, and 'you are pretty safe if you stay in the center,' Sefick said.
