Mississippi River At Memphis, Tennessee

Report:  Pilot Decision, Lack Of Oversight Cause Tow Vessel Sinking........


The National Transportation Safety Board recently determined that a decision made by the pilot while traveling down the Mississippi River and inadequate company oversight led to the sinking of a tow vessel on December 8, 2017, which caused the death of Anquavious Newson, and the presumed death of his step-father, Keith Pigram.  Pigram was never found.


The report reveals that the pilot decided to travel up river without securing the deck hatches at a speed that pushed water on the deck, flooding the voids.  It also notes that the Wepfer Marine, owner of the Ricky Robinson, did not provide the needed oversight that would have made sure that the crews kept the deck hatches closed.  The company also did not address continual "watertight issues with the voids".


Reportedly, the Ricky Robinson was near Mississippi River Mile Marker 733, approximately three miles downstream of Mud Island, when the vessel began to take on water.  The pilot did make a distress call, however, the vessel sank before help could arrive.  Responders spent several hours searching for the vessel and the missing crew members.  About a week later, the vessel was raised, and Newson's body was recovered........

Mississippi River Near Vidalia, Louisiana

Mississippi Suing Feds Over Flooding........


On Monday, the State of Mississippi filed suit against the federal government, claiming that a dam complex in Louisiana that keeps the Mississippi River from shifting course is damaging state land.


The suit is calling for at least $25 million in damages, and taps one of the most sensitive engineering questions in the nation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' efforts to keep the Mississippi River on course flowing past Baton Rouge and New Orleans.


Without the Old River Control Structure, it is likely that the Mississippi River would shift it's course to the Atchafalaya River in Louisiana, which would provide a shorter, steeper route to the Gulf of Mexico.  A shift would cut off the current source of fresh water for drinking and industrial uses in southern Louisiana.


According to the Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, the state is not challenging the decision to keep the river's current flow in place, but rather that the state should be compensated for the increase in flooding caused by siltation........

Mississippi River Near Hannibal, Missouri

Hannibal Official Monitoring Flooding Potential........


Currently, there is a massive wall of ice in the Mississippi River at Canton, Missouri, and it is acting like a dam.  If the ice jam breaks apart, it may cause flooding


Hannibal's Emergency Management Director, John Hark, says that he is carefully monitoring the situation.  He notes that it is something they will watch and be careful of, but they are not worried about the situation.


Hark says that Hannibal can handle four to six additional feet of water.  He added that he would not be surprised if Hannibal sees some flooding this spring, considering the wet winter that happened upstream........

Corps Won't Be Drawing Down Intermediate Pool........


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District recently announced that they would not be proceeding with a request to temporarily lower the Mississippi River elevation of the intermediate pool between the Upper and Lower St. Anthony Falls Locks and Dams.


The Bassett Creek Watershed Commission had requested the drawdown to allow for the inspection of a tunnel as part of the Bassett Creek Flood Risk Management Project.  The Corps reviewed the request and determined that a drawdown could not be carried out at this time because it would not meet the latest requirements of the Corps' Policy.


Colonel Sam Calkins, the Corps St. Paul District Commander stated that they understand the importance of the commission's request, and will assist in determining a way forward that will allow the tunnel to be inspected........
