Lake Neatahwanta Dredging To Continue

FULTON, NY – Dredging of Lake Neatahwanta is set to continue into its second year starting soon.

Due to spawning season, state law requires no dredging be completed until the season is over.

With the end of spawning season July 17, Mayor Ronald Woodward announced at a recent council meeting they hope to start dredging as soon as possible.

“We still have the permit,” said Mayor Woodward. “At this time it’s just figuring out if we need to re-bid the project or if we can continue with the contractors from our first year of dredging.”

Tim Groh with Groh Dredging was awarded the bid for the first year and completed one year and 20,000 cubic yards of dredging.

Senator Patty Ritchie’s office recently contacted Mayor Woodward and committed $100,000 to the project in its second year.
