^ All that shot tells me is that we need a tower at Fulton and Canal to completely wall in the river

Great pics Harry!

^ Would be nice if we saw a new proposal for the SE corner of Jefferson and Fulton. I quite liked the one JDL had previously shown that was shut down by Reilly. Would have filled out that view nicely.

Man, hope those excavators are waterproof. I wonder how long that will set the project back...

Nah they will be expensive to repair but cheaper than replacing them and I believe even replacing them would actually be less than a couple million. They will probably have to clean the engines assuming water got in. They will also have to clean and check all the hydraulics and any bearings will likely have to be cleaned and packed with grease. All the electrical wiring will need to be checked as well. It's going to be expensive but not a couple million expensive.

Not sure what size these are but:

CAT excavators range in price from about $100,000 to more than $850,000. The price depends on the size of the excavator, its weight, horsepower, and other features.

Small CAT excavators range in price from $100,000 to about $230,000. These models weigh about 26,000 to 55,000 pounds and have horsepower ranging from 79 to 188.

Medium-sized CAT excavators cost $230,000 to $270,000. They weigh about 65,000 to 80,000 pounds and have horsepower ranging from 204 to 268.

Large models start at about $400,000 and run upwards of $830,000. The offer 380 to 523 horsepower and weigh between 100,000 and 200,000 pounds.

Demolition models weigh in at about 105,000 to 218,000 pounds with 270 to 530 horsepower. They're also the most expensive, ranging in price from about $387,000 to upwards of $850,000.

Keep in mind that the prices above are manufacturers' suggested retail prices. Actual prices can vary from one dealer to another. And any custom features or upgrades you select will add to the total price.

The problem with cleaning them is that they will have sat there with sewer water in them for a couple days. The rust is going to ruin the engines totally, and I wasn't just counting in the excavators into the few million. Cleaning up the site and the man hours wasted was tallied in to my guesstimation on the cost.

It looks to me that the river simply overtopped their wall. And even if they'd had pumps running, it wouldn't have mattered.
I can't find any flood stage data for the main stem. Anyone know where it topped out at relative to previous crests?
