Commission Chairman Steve Sisolak joined representatives from the Laughlin Economic Development Corporation and local government agencies Tuesday to officially launch the Laughlin Lagoon dredging project.
"This project will revitalize the Laughlin Lagoon by opening up the area for boating and other recreational pursuits," Chairman Sisolak said. "This will create jobs and business opportunities for those in and around the marina. It is exciting to see this project coming to fruition."
The project will remove silt from the water there to make it easier for boats to use the lagoon and the marina. The dredging will also improve the water circulation in the lagoon, significantly reducing spots of stagnant water. The work is expected to be complete in January.
