2011 Flood – MCS Rockport Yard

The Mulzer Crushed Stone, Inc. yard in Rockport, Indiana, located on the Ohio River, has not escaped the flooding issues that have become so common in many communities throughout Southern Indiana.  Below are photos of  the yard and dry dock facility that is currently experiencing flooding.  MCS dry dock welders and the ‘Mr. Bill’ boat crew have had to Jon boat to the dry dock facility every day since the flooding began to perform their work.   Employees had to disconnect the electric that normally runs to the dry dock, tie off  the #8 dredge above the spot where the dry dock is located and run the this portion of the facility off the 450 kw generator that is housed on the #8 dredge.

A view from high above the Rockport Yard shows the current flooding situation at the facility. The dry dock is located at the top right hand of the photo.
