Dredging to Improve Suisun City's Marina


The Suisun City Marina is getting deeper day by day as two dredge rigs perform routine silt-removal to ensure this waterway remains Central Solano County's premier public marina.

The Roy G. Garren Construction team is working 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. six days a week to get thousands of cubic yards of accumulated silt out of the bottom of the waterway.

The dredge work also will clear Whispering Bay and the slough serving the homes along Marina Boulevard.

Improving the marina and keeping it suitable for a wide variety of boats is essential to the economic health of the Waterfront District, and the viability of the Solano Yacht Club, which routinely draws fellow boaters from across the Bay Area to Suisun City.

"It is a critcal asset that is more important than ever as we work hard to attract new restaurants and businesses to Harbor Square, solict new ventures to four remaining waterfront sites, and market to visitors to come and stay at our soon-to-be-opened waterfront hotel - all occurring during more than challenging economic times," said Recreation and Community Services Director Mick Jessop.

All work must be completed by December 31, 2008.
