Hurley docked after another successful dredging season
IN THE PHOTO, the Dredge Hurley is docked at Ensley Engineer Yard for some much-needed repairs and the crew is now home for some rest and recuperation after another long but successful season of dredging the Mississippi River. Adrian Pirani, Dredge Hurley master, said the crew successfully removed a little more than 8 million cubic yards of sediment this season. The season was shorter than last year due to the Hurley needing maintenance done, which required the Hurley be placed on a larger dry dock down south for a few months earlier this year.
