The Army Corps of Engineers (ACE) has released a draft environmental impact statement to address the continued accumulation of sediment in the lower Snake River. ACE has adopted Alternative 7 as their preferred alternative, which calls for dredging of the river at the Clearwater/Snake confluence, and near the Port of Lewiston and Clarkston. The Corps is holding an open house on Thursday January 24 at 5:30pm in the Clearwater Room of the Williams Conference Center at Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston.
