What Are The Divers Doing In the Caruth Park Ponds?

Recent visitors to Caruth Park may have noticed the dredging divers in the ponds.

A dredging contractor began removing the silt, including trash, leaves, other debris, from the pond in mid-June, city officials say. 

The hydraulic dredging process involves a diver using a vacuum-like hose to draw the sediment and debris up from the bottom of the pond. 

The dredging work is expected to finish up in early fall. 

The city shared a video of the process.
