"well it's what they call a cutter head that's on the dredge and it's basically like a big rotating head that churns up the sediment and thenliterally vacuum it out of the bottom of the channel."

Flood waters left behind a sandbar that runs about a mile and a half below the aberdeen lock.

Workers are using pipes to move the sand to the banks of the river.

"it will stay there permanently we have disposal areas all along the waterway from one end to the other and they are designated areas to hold that material."

The dredge is working around the clock to clean up the waterway and slowly making it's way towards the aberdeen lock.

"we maintain a 9 foot deep navigational channel some of those areas that you don't see a sandbar but it may be only two or 3 feet deep there."

There is an estimated 400,000 cubic yards of sediment blocking the channel in that one spot.

The dredge is removing around 500 cubic yards per hour.
