Immediately after the Christmas break, the Kelly L was dispatched to Biloxi to perform maintenance dredging along 5 miles of area channels. A portion of the dredged material was placed, via two miles of pipeline, onto Deer Island as one of the nation’s 10 beneficial use projects, sponsored by the Corps of Engineers.
The second half of the task order involved the placement of the material dredged from the Biloxi East Access Channel over the shallow waters of Mississippi Sound with the dredge’s spillbarge. The channel extends from the Biloxi Harbor, southeast to the GIWW. The work was completed at the end of the quarter and the dredge and equipment are currently moving to Bon Secour, on the east side of Mobile Bay.
