Federal government hiring has a reputation for being challenging. Not this time. The Jacksonville District is cutting through all of that bureaucracy to fill up to 35 critical engineering positions.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District’s multi-billion dollar Indian River Lagoon South (IRL-S) construction of the C-44 component is due for completion June 2021.
The first step in lock repair is dewatering. It takes a team of about 30 people a week or two of 12 hour days to set up a needle system wall and pump the water out before repairs can even begin. The crane operator and South Florida Operations team begin the dewatering of the Ortona Lock by setting a steel I-beam into the girder recess notch in the lock wall, starting with the upper end of the lock.
