Navigation Channel Condition Status Report ....24 Jul 2014


    US Army Corps of Engineers

    St. Louis District - Weekly Navigation Channel Condition





Dredge Potter    - standby
Dredge America - standby


Mississippi River


Continuing until further notice the Melvin Price L/D (main chamber) in the vicinity of Mile 200.8, is closed for repairs. All vessels will be required to use the auxiliary chamber. Mariners may contact the L/D at (618) 462-1713 or via VHF-FM Channel 14, for additional information.


A UTV has been reported sunk in the vicinity of Mile 182.0, approximately 250 yards off the LDB (Illinois side of the river) and approximately 650 yards north of the I-70 Mississippi River Bridge. From a USACE Survey, revealed approximately 21 feet over the top of the UTV with the St. Louis Harbor Gauge at 24.8 feet above zero. Mariners are requested to favor the right descending side of the channel between approximate Miles 185.4 and 180.0 and to transit the area with caution



Illinois Waterway
Zones 1-8 (Mile 199.0 – Mile 9.0).
The following restrictions apply to all zones contained within this Safety Advisory: Towboat operators should be experienced in high water
operations and should proceed at their slowest safe operating speed based upon prevailing conditions in order to minimize wake damage. The
drift of debris may be hazardous to navigation, causing buoys to be dragged off station. Down streaming operations are not recommended
unless the vessel is equal to or greater than 75 feet in length and have a minimum of 1,800 horsepower. Mariners are requested to remain
aware of the close proximity to railways when choosing a location to push into the bank, with the current river stages, railway systems close to
the river’s edge may become threatened by the head of a tow when pushed into the bank.
All vessels are reminded to minimize speed to avoid wake damage.



Missouri River

Daniel Boone Companion Bridge; Cofferdam installation is ongoing on both sides of the navigation channel, minimum horizontal clearance between cofferdams is 400 feet. At times the floating workplant may be temporarily moored in the channel and will move on 30-minute advance notice by contacting the M/V GABRIEL J via VHF-FM Channels 13 or 16.

Kaskaskia River

A 45-50 foot vessel has been reported sunk at a dock in the vicinity of Mile 10.0, Water Street Bar and Grill, Evansville, Illinois. A deck barge is reportedly moored over the top of the vessel. Mariners are urged to exercise caution in the area.

 Mississippi River Near Dubuque, Iowa

    After Floods, River Businesses Playing Catch-Up........


This year's flooding along the Mississippi River lasted about three months, and as a result, many businesses around Dubuque, Iowa are playing catch-up.  The businesses that operate out of Dubuque's Ice Harbor were especially hard hit.  When the Mississippi River rises to 16 feet, and is forecast to rise to 17 feet, the city shuts the Ice Harbor gates.  The city shut the gates twice this year, cutting boat based businesses off from the river for 61 days........
