Summary of accomplishments:
Fixed the overhead winch
East half of Cell 4 is above marsh level
Total time pumped directly into Cell 4 = 64.5 hours
Last week, the overhead winch died, once again leaving the pump on the bottom. It took most of this week to get the winch fixed and the pump back in working order. Luckily, we had an extra winch motor on hand, knowing by experience that the winch would not last long. The overhead winch has been the weak link in this project, and cost efficiency can not be assessed as long as this situation persists.
