The City of Clinton Parks and Recreation Department has announced the Emma Young Pond will be dredged as part of a successful grant application to the Iowa DNR Resource Enhancement and Protection (REAP) Fund.
The project is set to be fully funded by the DNR REAP Grant, a news release says. Plans include dredging to the original pond depth, addition of a silt pond, construction of a new fishing pier and addition of a canoe/kayak launch.
The project is expected to begin in the late summer/early fall, with completion in the spring/summer of 2022.
Plans also include a re-stock with a balanced variety of fish. Accelerated fishing is encouraged this summer to remove as many existing fish as possible.
