26 May 2009 – Port call and Beaver Army dock.

We continued to collect samples at the RM-17 station hourly until 1000, and then pulled the anchor and went to the dock at the Job Corp campus on Tongue Point. Colleen Durkin and Sara Bender disembarked with their equipment, and undergraduate intern Lindsey Longway came aboard. We then steamed upriver to the Beaver Army dock at river mile 53, conducted a CTD cast, and then tied up at about 1800. We attached the end of the pump hose to a pole and strapped to the port side of the ship so that the hose end was positioned at 1m depth.
