The pump failed to engage on June 14 and was taken away June 21 by Javeler, Inc for assessment. Fortunately, it turned out to be a minor problem. In the meantime, we have been experiencing high water, scattered thunderstorms, conferences, holidays and other events that would have kept us from dredging anyway. We should get back on line this week.
When people ask, “how long does it take?” the above scenario is difficult to explain. It may take but a couple of weeks in pumping hours, but months in actual logistical time to complete a relatively small area. BUT – and I emphasise – this is a SMALL dredge!!!
