Aug 8, 2021. In preparing the mouth for dredging, a sand cradle (upper left of photo) crosses from the sand bar to the west bank of the river. It will hold the pipeline used to pump out unwanted sediment from the river bottom. Sediment will be discharged southwesterly of the mouth into the Gulf where the current will carry it away. Boaters are asked to stay away from the work zone and any dredging equipment.
