Dredge project stalled, despite permit

Despite the issuance of a new state permit allowing landowners along the lower Kilchis River to alleviate flooding in their pastures, it was still unclear this week when or if the dredging project will be able to proceed. Landowners have been trying to clear out a 2,500-foot section of the Kilchis River west of U.S. 101 at their own expense for the past six years.
