Explosives to be used in the Mississippi River to blow up huge rocks!
They said that huge rocks on the river bed in southern Illinois are adding to the problems of the drought and interfering with barge traffic.

My concern is...can this trigger quakes on the NMSZ?

Revised forecast shows Mississippi River dropping slower than expected; reprieve for shippers

[Last week, several senators whose states border the Mississippi River met with Army Assistant Secretary Jo-Ellen Darcy, urging her to take two steps to ease concerns: Cut down on the amount of water held back on the upper Missouri River; and expedite removal of massive rock formations in the Mississippi River near two southern Illinois towns, formations that could scrape barges in periods of extreme drought.

Current plans call for explosives to be used in February to blow up the rocks, but Army Corps spokesman Mike Petersen in St. Louis said Wednesday that the agency has expedited soliciting bids for the work with hopes of having a contractor hired as early as next month. The Corps also has promised the senators a response to their water flow request by later this week.]

Rock Removal on Drought-Stricken Ms. River

ST. LOUIS — Crews might be allowed to begin destroying two rock pinnacles impeding barge traffic on the Mississippi River as early as next week, more than a month ahead of schedule, a senator said Tuesday, cautioning that further steps may be needed to ensure the vital shipping route remains open.

U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., and two river industry trade groups said Tuesday that the Army Corps of Engineers informed them that blasting could start next week, although it wasn't clear which day the work could start or how long it might take. The corps didn't respond to several messages seeking comment.

LOL! You think your name calling will somehow cause me to not question everyday possibilities.

The area where they will be "blasting" is in the northern part of the NMSZ.
The fault runs directly below that area. It was a question of whether it can trigger the fault. Nothing more.
If you have nothing to contribute, then leave.

Re: Explosives to be used in the Mississippi River to blow up huge rocks!
There is a reason,

The record drought this year has the MS river drying up faster than expected, with most the shallow areas of the river to the point of boats being unable to pass. They are going to use charges to open up a pass way so that the entire shipping operation on the MS doesn't stop...

No personally I do not think its the smartest idea, But letting the shipping stop is even dumber...No one remember the trucker strike in the 70's?

I haven't heard anything about them opening up a new pass way. Just blowing them rocks out of the river.
I understand the economic impact the drought is causing, but I just question whether this could have other ramafications.

Re: Explosives to be used in the Mississippi River to blow up huge rocks!
I think there has to be a better way then to blow things up and dig it deeper..

What are the going to do when it dries up!!! Not from drought but because of up lift of the sheild caused from the pacific plate pushing on the continent..

what then....

I'm glad you brought that up friend. I remembered that thread also and was wondering if there was a connection.
It's good to see I'm not the only one connecting possible dots.
