Document Description
The proposed project is to conduct annual marsh vegetation removal and sediment dredging in Neary Lagoon to reduce sedimentation and increase lagoon depths in order to: 1) improve water circulation and flow rates; 2) improve water quality; 3) reduce the proliferation of vegetative (tule) growth; 4) improve habitat; 5) provide access for the tule removal equipment and to prevent the lagoon from "filling" up. Vegetation removal will be done to achieve a 1:1 ratio of open water to marsh with locations and extent of work to vary annually, based on vegetation conditions and growth rates. Depending upon the accumulation of sediment over the winter months and resulting lagoon depths, up to 3,600 cubic yards of sediment may be removed each year that dredging is conducted.
