The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ hopper dredger McFarland continues to remove shoaling from sediment that January floods brought south in the Mississippi River’s Southwest Pass.

McFarland was deployed on short notice, making part of the Army Corps of Engineers’ ready reserve for rapidly emerging requirements like this one.

The USACE, Philadelphia District, has released this photo of McFarland, taken during its work to keep navigation channels open where the Mississippi meets the Gulf of Mexico.
