Dredging officially began Thursday, Sept. 23, 2022, and will wrap up on or around Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2022. Around-the-clock dredging is being done by a clamshell dredge owned and operated by Palo-Alto based Camenzind and San Rafael-based Dutra Group. The O&M schedule provides for seven and four‐year maintenance dredging cycles, respectively, for the Across the Flats (ATF) Channel (to 8 feet MLLW project depth plus 2 feet allowable over depth) and for the Inner Canal Channel (to 6 feet MLLW project depth plus 2 feet of allowable over depth.)

San Francisco District is currently working one phase with two more in the future. The total Dry Creek project is a joint partnership between non-Federal sponsor Sonoma Water and the San Francisco District to restore approximately 46 acres of habitat along six miles of Dry Creek for coho salmon and steelhead trout. The habitat restoration features planned for the project include construction of stream side channels, riffles, backwaters and alcoves to slow the speed of the water and create refuge for young fish.
