Repairs are being done on the Cannelton Locks and Dam, on the Ohio River in Indiana. Before work could begin, the 1,200 foot lock chamber had to be dewatered, which involves pumping the water out giving the crew room to work in the nearly-empty chamber. Bulkheads were put into place to keep water out of the chamber at both ends. The miter gates are being inspected and worn out components on the lower gates will be replaced. The work began in June and is expected to continue through the fall of 2017.
