Baltimore Key Bridge #37 – About the channel mud

Index & Summary


“It’s cloudy because of the 4-5 feet of mud and then just the loose bottom of the Patapsco River.” Col Estee S Pinchasin, 0:54 in

This relates directly to the Massively Missing Material and the suggestion of trusswork somehow appreciably ‘disappearing into the mud’ and even pancaking (911 trigger-word)!

Strangely, the released SONAR images show degradation of fine detail that was attributed to mud buildup.  A “priority number one” work truck was recovered with not a hint of mud on it, nor appreciable damage for that matter (none had fallen onto it; all windows intact; looked brand-new, etc.).  No recovered trusswork thus far has shown any presence of mud whatsoever.
