|January Water Quality Test on San Bernard|
|Posted on Jan 16th, 2020 Comments (0)
H-GAC Texas Stream Team volunteers Valroy Maudlin and Tim Logan, using a test kit, measure the physical and chemical parameters of San Bernard River at two locations. Valroy tests off his pier at CR 496, 1.6 miles upstream from the Churchill Bridge. Tim tests off his dock at Rio Vista, 4.5 miles downstream from the Churchill Bridge. Both tests are done within a day or so of each other.
The test reports the pH level, salinity, temperature, dissolved oxygen and turbidity of the water. Two forms are shown for comparison as the data collected from the two locations can vary.

Just as a large semi truck sped over the FM 521 bridge, the J&S workboat “11” carefully aimed the barge it was pushing through the narrow passage under the bridge.The barge was carrying a drag line excavator.
Meanwhile, two smaller push boats following the J&S boat, paused momentarily to allow a deckhand to leap from one boat to the other, almost not making it. These smaller vessels also have knees like the bigger towboats. Knees are the large plates mounted to the bow for pushing barges. In this case, they assisted by manhandling the long dredging discharge pipelines that followed behind the dredge.

BCFFA will sponsor the removal of all fuel, oil and batteries while Brazoria County will transport vessel to landfill for disposal. Boat must be clear of waste and debris.
If you own a vessel under 26’ long in need of disposal (longer boats may be accepted on a case by case basis) or know a neighbor who may need assistance. You will be required to bring vessel to one of two drop off locations.
