Deirdre Newman A group of Newport Shores homeowners want a canal near their homes dredged to get rid of the sediment they say is damaging the water quality and health of the marshlands. But the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which owns the channel, says its first priority is dredging the Santa Ana River. And funding is hard to come by for other projects, project manager Ken Morris said. The corps is dredging 400,000 cubic yards of sediment from the Santa Ana River channel and plans to dispose of it in West Newport Beach.
