Potential hazard warning. The South Sector Gate at the West Brazos River Floodgate sticking out in the ICWW. There is a buildup of mud and silt or some sort of debris that is causing the gate from opening all the way into the recess. The gate is sticking out 5 inches into the ICWW. Captains need to hug the north side of the chamber while transiting the West Brazos Floodgate. We will be working with a contractor to see when they will be able to clear the debris causing the hazard and hopefully have the issue remedied late next week. (The week beginnging 08 April 2024)
