Full Speed Ahead with McKellar Dredging Project

first_imgInland Dredging Company, a Dyersburg, Tennessee based contractor, is nine days into dredging in McKellar Lake Harbor, Memphis, TN.  Inland’s cutter suction dredger (CSD) INTEGRITY is working under a three year contract with the Memphis District of the Army Corps of Engineers.“We started dredging there nine days ago and have removed close to 160,000 yards. The other 9 harbors have all received funding so we will move up to the northern most and work our way down before finishing up before Christmas,” said Greg Ford, President of Inland Dredging Company.“With the significant high water we have had this year, there is major concern for above average silting in many harbors, up and down the river-ways. We are running into heavy silting areas in Memphis area, and with grain season coming, it’s all hands-on deck to get these cleared and functioning before the harvest.”The Memphis District begins at the mouth of the Ohio River and runs down the Mississippi River to the mouth of the White River in Arkansas – about 375 river miles. Ten harbors exist within the district, with the largest being the McKellar Lake Harbor.Inland Dredging Company has made sizable investments this year in float hose and a new spacer barge that allows the company to meet the contract swing widths that the Army Corps of Engineers is putting forth in their contracts.last_img read more
