Rock was dumped in 15 - 17 ft. water on the north sites and 14 -16 ft. water on the south sites. Each site pile form is different depending on the size of rock dumped and how they bounced of each other. Generally speaking they are 50 - 60 ft. long and come up off bottom 5 -7 ft.
A breakdown; 5 - 7 quad axel dump truck loads per barge load. Took around 3 hours to load. Barge moved 5 mph loaded and 6 mph unloaded. Took 1.5 - 2 hours each way to get to dump locations because of the size of Winnebago. Only took around 30 minutes to pull rock off loaded barge with the backhoe on the second barge. So around 8 hrs. per load.
We had to be on the lake for each load. Put down a buoy each day at a preselected GPS site and the barge was unloaded at the selected site.
