Hurley docked after another successful dredging season
IN THE PHOTO, a crane removes barrels off the Dredge Hurley, which is now docked at Ensley Engineer Yard for some much-needed repairs 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.
