New Log Jam Once Again Blocking The Escambia River
March 14, 2017
In 2015, a log jam blocking the Escambia River south of Century was removed, but now a new log jam appears to have formed, once again blocking the river.
The new log jam is about a half mile downriver from the previous log jam, or about a half mile feet upriver from the entrance to Cotton Lake.
Under a contract with Escambia County, Southern Forest Recyclers removed the old log jam in 2015 at a cost of $68,498. The company reportedly had a multi-million dollar contact to sell the reclaimed wood.
