A bonding company is working with the Army Corps of Engineers in the search for a new contractor to dredge Stevenson Creek in Clearwater, Fla., after a second contractor was removed from the job, according to a Corps of Engineers spokeswoman. The heavily polluted creek estuary needs about 19 million tons of muck removed, but contractor disputes have stalled the project over the past two years. "The bonding company is interviewing contractors. The [Corps of Engineers] has said that they'll have a say-so in approving a new contractor," Clearwater's engineering director said.
