Based on daily reports, the following metrics have been calculated:
LF (Linear Feet) = 8,390 (86.5% of 9,700)
CY (Cubic Yards) = 233,368 (64.4% of 362,163)
Unfortunately, over the past week there have been some downtime due to equipment issues, which has slowed production. Equipment breakdowns included the service water shaft and subsequently, the service water pump motor. The repairs/replacement had the dredge down for almost two days.
For that reason, Rigid has decided to run regular shifts through the Thanksgiving holiday. They will run 24-hour days on THU and FRI.
- Boaters please stay clear of markers, the dredge pipe, all equipment, and the discharge area
