Opening of Bids for Dredging
Near This City.
Deepening of Channel Through Draws
of Bridges.
Existing Channels to Be Extended.
Character of the Material?Reclaiming
Anacostia Flats.
It:ds for the improvement of the Potomac
(tad Anacostia rivers In the vicinity of this
city will be opened at noon tomorrow in
the office of MaJ Spencer Cosby, United
Btatis Army rngiiu-tr officer in charge of
the Potomac and other rivers in Virginia
tributary to Chesapeake bay. and under
the terms of the specifications the work
must tie started within sixty days after the
awarding of the contract.
The work to be done has been divided
by the engineer's office Into five heads as
follows: Dredging the Virginia channel of
the Potomac river, dredging the tidal basin,
dredging soft material In the Anacostia
river, dredging hard material In tlie Anacostla
river und removing piles from the
Anai r.stla river. The Improvement In the
Virginia channel Is above the old Long
bridge toward Georgetown and Includes
the deepening of the channel through the
draw* of the new bridges over the Potomac.
A channel twenty-one feet deep at low
tide and about 350 feet wide is to be
d.'edgt-d on lines to be designated by the
engineer. The length of the channel to be
drudged Is 7.000 feet, more or less. The
depth of cutting will range from one to
nine feet and will average about four and
one-half feet.
The material is believed to be soft mud
with perhaps a small proportion of sand,
and to consist entirely of deposits from
freshets in a previously dredged channel.
, The excavated material will be deposited
upon the adjacent portions of Potomac r"ark
at localities to be designated by the engineer.
A largo amount of this material will
be deposited In the 17th street sewer canal,
which is to be filled, and upon the section
near Easbvs Point, which localities are
now IOW. 1 lie graue 01 uic iujupicitu im
Is to be about sixteen feet above low tide.
The maximum distance from the channel
to be dredged to the place of deposit is
about 3,500 feet and the minimum about
000 feet. %
The estimated amount of dredging in
Virginia channel, Potomac river, Is 400,000
cubic yards.
In the Tidal Basin.
In t'.ie tidal basin it is proposed to dredge
tl* entire area of about 111 acres to a depth
of e'.ght feet, except within fifty feet of the
sea wall, where the depth Is to be eight feet
at low tide.
The lines of dredging will be designated
by the engineer. The depth of cutting will
range from one to seven feet and will average
about four feet.
The material is believed to be 80ft mud
and to consist entirely of recent deposits
from freshets In a previously dredged area.
Tho excavated material will be deposited
upon the adjacent portions of Potomac
Park at localities to be designated by the
engineer. A large amount of the material is
to be deposited in the small tidal reservoir,
the X7th Street sewer canal afld the elliptical
arftafbetween the southeastern shor^ of the
tld&f reservoir and the Washington, Alexandria
and Mount Vernon electric railroad.
The grade of the completed fill is to be
about sixteen feet above low tide, except on
the section below the railroad, where It will
c-e aDoui iweive iet-i auove iuw uue. i ne
maximum distance from tihe place of dredg- !
Ing to the place of deposit is about ..jW feet
ami the minimum about 4Wt feet.
The estimated amount of dredging In the
tidal reservoir, Potomac river, Is 000,000
cubic yards.
Below Navy Yard Bridge.
In the Anacostla river below the Navy
Yard bridge the existing channel is to be
extended to the eastern limits of the navy
yard, and is to be widened by dredging
chiefly near Buzzards Point, near the navy
yard, and probably opposite Washington
barracks, on lines to be designated by the
engineer. The depth Is to be made twenty
feet at low tid". The length of the channel
In which dredging Is to be done is about
9,001) feet. The depth of cutting will range
from one to twenty feet and will average
aVwiMf i
The material i8 believed to be soft mud
with an occasional trace of sand, and nothing
except mud, sand and similar easilydredged
material will have to be dr.'dged at
the price bid for soft material, Anacostia
The excavated material will be deposited
upon Anacostia flats below Poplar Point,
behind the left bulkhead line, at such localities
as the engineer may designate. The
grade of the completed fill will not exceed
seven feet above low tide. The maximum
dlntanc from the channel to be dredged to
the place of deposit is about 3,(JOO feet and
the minimum is about 500 feet.
The estimated amount of dredging of soft
material In Anacostia river Is about 700,000
cubic yards.
The greater part of the material to be removed
from the Anacostia river is soft mud.
but Is is proposed to widen the channel, in
order to get a crook out of It at Uuzzards
Point, where the material to be excavated is
hard clay, sand and gravel, and in cunse?
uuenee of tiie hard nature of the material
separate specifications have b**en prepared
for that portion of the work. The channel to
be dug through the Anacostla. iur will be
to a depth of twenty feet at low tide, on
lines to be designated by the engineer The
hard material is largely overlaid by mud.
which will be dredged and paid for as soft
material. The length of the hard bar to be
dredged 18 al>out 70" feet. The depth of
cutting will range from one to twenty-one
feet and will average about ten feet.
Compact Gravel and Sand.
The material is believed to be compact
gravel anil sar.d, with some clay. Some of
this materia! was dredeed bv the hvdraullc
process uiule." a previous contract.
T!.e excavated material will be deposited
upon Anacostia flats below Poplar Point,
behind the bulkhead line, at such localities
us the engineer may designate. The grrade
of the completed All will not exceed seven
feet alx>ve low tide. The distance from
the grav> 1 bar to the place of deposit Is
about feet.
The estimated amount of dredKlng of
hard material In Anacostia river Is 21.000
cubic yards. About " ?> piles remain from
an old wharf, which originally stood In
Anacostia river opposite the navy yard and
In the portion of the river to be dredged
under these specifications. These piles are
generally about twelve Inches In diameter
and are believed to average about forty to
fifty feet In length. The material In which

The plies Will, ut the option of the contractor
be either pulled up in their entire I
lengths from the river bed or broken off j
?o as to provide a depth of at least twentyfour
feet at low tide over the portion of
each pile remaining in the river. After
belr.g removed the piles will, if required by
the engineer, lie placed and properly secured
ort.Anacostia flats, at such localities as
ma*' be designated. If the engineer does
not require that they be thus placed, the
piles will be disposed of as the contractor
sees fit. subject to the approval of the
1'iider the terms of the contract to be
given out all the above work must be done
under the direction of inspectors appointed
by the engineer's office, and the contractor
' is to furnish the inspectors with daily
transportation to and from the work. If
required: with a safe, clean and suitable
boat with the services of competent oarsfc
men whenever required, and with such
other facilities as may be necessary for the
