Sunset over the beautiful Texas Gulf Coast. Inside the circle is the area of discharged sediment collecting from the dredge’s discharge pipe. The prevailing Gulf current moves the sediment in southwesterly direction (arrow) away from the mouth.

The repair of the pump shaft/bearings is underway, and the earliest it will be complete will be on FRI 10Sep21. I expect that it will take 2-3 days to have the repaired part back onsite, and then one day to reinstall and test. I don’t expect that we’ll begin dredging operations until early next week.
