    In its 91-year history, the St. Louis District Dredge Potter crew remains dedicated to the Navigation mission and maintaining the congressional authorized channel on the Mississippi, Illinois, and Kaskaskia River.
    Built in 1932 with a steam engine, the Dredge Potter has since been modernized and remains fully mission capable as a working dustpan dredge capable of moving 50,000 cubic yards of sediment per day - this amount would fill an Olympic size swimming pool.
    This September, water levels broke 20 record lows on the St. Louis gage. Enduring back-to-back drought years, the District’s Dredge Equipment Operator, Donnie Mckoy operates the many operating systems onboard the vessel that moves anchors, boats, and pipelines while monitoring progress and deciding where to place the dredging equipment for optimal efficiency.
