U.S. Army Corp of Engineers’ drilling project in Onekama, Michigan

The week of January 9th, Charlie Moore, (driller, pictured left), Brad Mathias (driller’s helper), and Bernadette McCarthy (staff engineer) experienced the cold, icy weather of Northwest Michigan while completing the drilling for an U.S. Army Corp of Engineers’ project in Onekama, Michigan.  The revetments, located along the channel between Portage Lake and Lake Michigan, are currently failing. The geotechnical investigation was performed to provide subsurface conditions needed for a future design.
