January Post Meeting

Rescheduled - Date TBD

Rock Island members-

Tour:  Join us for a tour of Lock 15’s dewatering effort with Rock Island District’s Engineering and Operations staff as your personal guide. With bulkheads set and the main lock chamber pumped down, you’ll get a rare look at the chamber floor, miter gate sills, and the filling/emptying manifolds.  Maintenance crews will take this opportunity to inspect components that are normally submerged, install bulkhead sill beams and encase them in concrete, replace upper gate anchorages, replace the bubbler system, and make repairs to deteriorated vertical concrete and steel armor in the chamber.  It will probably be 25 years until this happens again at Lock 15, so don’t miss it! 

This event has been rescheduled. Please return here for more information when it's available. If you have registered for this event you will be receiving an email with more information! - Thank you for your patience!
