Saginaw River Passages - November 5th

American Century arrived on the Saginaw River, early Tuesday morning, to unload coal at the Consumers Energy dock in Essexville.  She backed from the during the late afternoon, turned at Light 12 and was headed outbound for the lake.  Olive L. Moore - Lewis J. Kuber were also inbound on Tuesday, heading upbound for Zilwaukee.  The pair were outbound from the Burroughs dock early in the evening.

Just to add more information about the visit from the saltie, Elevit, on Sunday, while she was tied up at the Dow Chemical dock, she was actually unloading her cargo to a new fertilizer facility.  Known as the Port Fisher Fertilizer dock, this was the first cargo delivered there by water, instead of rail.  Fisher is also the parent company of the Bay Aggregates dock, which is located right next to the new fertilizer facility.  There is another cargo expected here during November.
