New Bedford Dredging Work Nears End

first_imgImage source: CashmanThe dredging operations on the New Bedford lower harbor, undertaken by Cashman Dredging and Marine Contracting Co., are nearing its completion.Cashman Dredging, a heavy-construction company based in Quincy, Massachusetts, won this $15 million contract in May 2017.According to the company, it is estimated that this capital dredging project will be completed during the first half of 2018.Project highlightsDredging is being performed in depths of up to 30 feet of water and as shallow as 3 feet;Sediments placed into the Lower Harbor Confined Aquatic Disposal Cell (LHCC) are being dredged using mechanical dredging equipment with a closed environmental bucket;Approximately 130,000 to 170,000 cubic yards of dredge materials exceeding the Lower Harbor Superfund cleanup level of 50 ppm are being removed and placed in the LHCC. Most of the material underlies the State Channel on the New Bedford side of the harbor;To minimize over-dredging, dredging accuracy is being controlled by using a Cashman-refined and enhanced Dredgepack dredge bucket positioning system (DGPS);Cashman developed a precise technical approach that incorporates “lessons learned” from dredging PCB-impacted sediments and from precision dredging using their dredge monitoring and positioning systems.New Bedford Harbor is a deep water commercial port with easy access to the maritime corridor from the Massachusetts coast, located on the northwestern side of Buzzard’s Bay.Once the world’s largest whaling port and a cotton manufacturing center, the harbor is now a major fishing port. The Port of New Bedford also serves as a break-bulk handler of perishable items, including fruit and fish, and also handles other cargo.Image source: Cashmanlast_img read more

Belgian Monks Revive 220yrold Beer after Rediscovering Lost Recipe

first_imgFor five centuries, the Belgian monks of the Grimbergen abbey proudly brewed their own beer–until anti-Catholic French troops ransacked the brewery and smashed their equipment in 1798. But the abbey’s emblem is a phoenix with the Latin motto “Ardet nec consumitur,” meaning “Burned but not destroyed,” and they weren’t going to give up forever. As of May 2019, the beer of these Belgian monks is preparing to flow again, as the monks are rediscovering and resurrecting the historic recipes and instructions from their archives. “Brewing and religious life always came together,” said Karel, one of 11 Norbertine canons living in the abbey.Monk stands in front of Grimbergen Abbey. Photo by Lennen Descamps CC BY-SA 3.0The monks are determined to rediscover their expertise. “For us, it’s important to look to the heritage, to the tradition of the fathers for brewing beer because it was always here,” Father Karel Stautemas said in an interview with Reuters.“The Grimbergen name already appears on Belgian beer, thanks to licensing deals with two commercial breweries: Carlsberg brews Grimbergen beers for the international market, while Heineken-owned Alken-Maes brews for the domestic market in Belgium,” according to Reuters. “The abbey gets part of those profits; now it wants to get directly involved in making the beer.”Grimbergen blonde.

The project,  Carlsberg financed, will focus on locally produced crops. The abbey has planted hops in its garden to prepare.Inside Grimbergen Abbey.

Some of the books saved from the marauding French in the abbey’s library date back to the 12th century. Those that dealt with brewing beer are in Latin and Old Dutch, so clearly some updating will be required.Grimbergen beer.

The abbey itself was rebuilt.Related Video:For centuries, Grimbergen Abbey has been associated with the symbol of a phoenix, said NPR. Its monks adopted the mythical animal as part of their coat of arms in 1629, after rebuilding the abbey following an earlier period of religious strife. An estimated 30,000 priests were exiled from France following the societal upheavals of the late 18th century. By 1794, France’s churches and religious orders were being closed down and religious worship suppressed. Some priests went into hiding. On Feb. 18, 1793, the Convention voted a prize of 100 livres to any citizen who turned in a priest.Related Article: The World’s Oldest Continuously Operated Brewery Nears its 1,000th BirthdayBy the spring of 1794, almost none of France’s 40,000 churches were open.
