Kootenay Lake dredging starting next week

Kootenay Lake dredging activities are expected to start later this month.

The dredging is done in the West Arm of Kootenay Lake, from September 24th to November 30th.

The province says it will ensure the long term navigational safety of the Kootenay Lake Ferry Service.

The work involves dredging at three shallow areas along the channel in order to increase the minimum water depth during low spring water levels.

Once complete the low water levels will no longer result in service disruptions.
