Sacramento Marina preps for the winter

In preparation for the winter, the City of Sacramento Public Works Department conducts routine water dredging at the Marina every year.

This is only one part of the overall maintenance for the Marina. Dredging consists of removing sediments and debris from bodies of water such as lakes, rivers, and harbors. The dredging work is overseen and authorized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency  and permits for disposal of dredged materials are issued by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The Sacramento Marina is a 475 slip public marina at the southern end of Front Street, nestled behind beautiful Miller Park on the east side of the Sacramento River. It’s the largest, most convenient and only off-river dockage marina in the Sacramento area.

In the past year, the Sacramento Marina had made many improvements to its facilities. A few of them include:

  • Addition of rental boats
  • Trimming brush to improve the aesthetics of the Marina and for security and appeal
  • Supplies, beverages, and snacks are now readily available at the administrative office store and fuel dock store
  • The Miller Launch restrooms
  • Increase of dock staff present to tend to boaters’ needs
  • Lower rates for slips and gas

The Sacramento Marina has recently achieved 80% occupancy despite low lake and river levels in the drought. For more information on the Sacramento Marina, visit their webpage.
