The two weeks of repairs scheduled for the Kelly L after the completion of the Black Warrior dredging turned Spillbarge in the distance at Bayou Labatre into two months. The dredge is only starting the Bayou Labatre dredging at the time of this writing.
This 45 days of work will be the last assign-ment for the 2017 contract, after which the dredge will head to Apalachicola, FL to commence the 2018 contract. The dredge is now outfitted with the new Dredging Quality Management system, required by the 2018 contract. The first certification in the nation of a DQM system on a pipeline dredge is in hand.
