Week ending June 15, 2012 – Pump dysfunction

Dredge (and Rainey) Report Pump dysfunction

June 15, 2012


Summary of accomplishments:
LSU extended the walkway; now from dock to marsh island between Cells 4 and 3 Impediments: pump would not work.


During the previous week (June 5-8), we contained Cell 3 and started pumping sediment into it. LSU started their walkways that will eventually allow access by foot into all completed cells.

This week, (June 13-15) Darcy Wilkins came with me to interview Timmy as part of the oral history program of the Louisiana Sea Grant. She spent her days helping with whatever we were doing, and interviewing Timmy in the evening.

Unfortunately, my plans of dredging were altered when the pump failed to work. Darcy and I helped LSU add to their walkway instead.
