ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Directly after finishing up operations on the Merriwether-Cherokee Scour Hole Fill Project, GLDD mobilized the cutter suction dredge Pontchartrain to remove sediment from McKellar Lake and pump it into a contained, upland disposal field on Treasure Island. In addition, GLDD performed emergency flood damage repair inside the mouth of McKellar Lake. This contract totaled nearly 500 rental hours of work.
