Update: Oyster Creek Dredging and Desilting Operations by Gulf Coast Water Authority

GCWA had two dozers actively working up until the last week in May when it began raining. They have not been on-site since. A site inspection with GCWA was performed on May 17th to inspect the grading progress thus far. GCWA agreed to improve the grade of the spoils by using a large drag to break up the large dirt clods (caused by grading the soil when it is still wet) and better smooth the graded material. GCWA will continue to work on drainage improvements as they grade and drag. Once work recommences another on-site meeting will be scheduled with GCWA again to inspect progress. Due to in climate weather it is doubtful that their work will be completed by the targeted deadline of the end of June.
