190926-A-HE363-1141 Equipment lines the chamber floor of the John H. Overton Lock and Dam during a complete dewatering of the structure, located on the Red River near Alexandria, Louisiana, by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Vicksburg District, Sept. 26. The dewatering of the lock and dam allowed district engineers and technical experts to inspect the lock chamber’s components, perform maintenance and make repairs. Since the construction of the lock and dam in 1982, the lock chamber has never been completely dewatered.
