Use the river to remove silt

In all the fuss about dredging Mirror Pond, I am surprised no one has suggested using the Deschutes River to do the work of removing the silt from the pond. The river brought it there so why not let the river remove it?

As a retired mechanical engineer, I have given some thought to the subject and designed a fairly simple solution and built one on a small scale. I have tried to contact someone about this, but no one seems interested. Who would be interested in listening?
