The Integrity completed the 2017 version of the dredge rental for the Vicksburg District in late January at Columbia Lock, on the Ouachita River, just south of Monroe, LA.
After battling several high water events, Willie Ford and the crew settled in to a routine of dredge-move-dredge-move-dredge, etc. The project covered a large area of Arkansas and north Louisiana along the Red and Ouachita rivers. The Vicksburg Corps’ project team has high praise for the way the crew members stepped up to repeatedly relocate and re-commence dredging in an efficient and timely manner. So much so that the District awarded a second, follow-on contract for approximately 2.5 months of dredging on the Red River, which started at the end of this quarter and is currently ongoing.
