Culverts were deployed in FH-8 on September 16, in FH-9 on the 18th, at Cat Island on the 22nd, in FH-13 on the 24th, in FH-2 on the 30th, and in FH-13 on October 8. Reef Ball Deployment was attempted in FH-6 on the 23rd but was aborted due to high seas. Reef Balls were successfully deployed in FH-6 on the 25th and in FH-1 on October 6.

On September 16, a Barge Load of Culverts was deployed in FH-8 over 3 separate targets. The surrounding depth was 16 feet. The first load was placed on top of previous rubble deployment 010628.
On September 18, a Barge Load of Culverts was deployed in FH-9 over 3 separate targets. The surrounding depth was 19 feet, the tide was 1.5 feet, winds were South at 10 knots.
On September 22, a Barge Load of Culverts was deployed at the Cat Island Site over 3 separate targets. The surrounding depth was 12 feet with a minimum depth of 6 feet recorded. The tide was 0.3 feet, winds were South at 12-18 knots. On September 24, a Barge Load of Culverts was deployed in FH-13 about 150 feet east of the Tuan Phong 060909b. The winds were East at 12 knots, the tide was 1.0 feet. The surrounding depth was 75 feet with a minimum depth of 66 feet recorded. Following the deployment, a dive was made on the FH-2 Reef Balls to obtain more video and make observations.
On September 25, a Barge Load of Reef Balls was deployed toward the South End of FH-6 at 2 separate Targets. Winds were East at 12 knots, the tide was 0.5 feet, the surrounding depth was 60 feet. There were some problems with Anchor drift so 2 numbers were given for the first group and some individual reef balls may be found even further to the east of 090925A2. On the second drop, the highest concentration is at 090925B with more found to the South-Southwest of those numbers.
On September 30, a Barge Load of Culverts was deployed in FH-2 about 100-150 feet to the Northeast of the Marguerite Barge. Winds were northeast at 16 knots, the tide was 1.7 feet, the surrounding depth was 58 feet
On October 6, a Barge Load of Culverts was deployed in FH-13 near Borries BargeA. Most of the material landed just north of the Barge. A second Barge loaded with Reef Balls was deployed at FH-1 Barge A. The intent was to deploy most of these on the Deck of the Barge. While some landed on the deck, many landed just off the north and west edges of the Barge. The Winds were South at 10 knots, the Tide was 0.7 feet. The Surrounding Depth was 64-68 feet at FH-1 and 76 feet at FH-13. The minimum depths were 53 feet at FH-1 and 67 feet at FH-13.
On October 8, a Barge Load of Culverts was deployed in FH-13 near the old Ingalls Rubble 020919. The Ingalls Rubble consisted of large columns and Tees that ended up in a scattered donut shape pattern. The desire was to augment the existing material with a concentration of Culverts in the center of this donut. Winds were from the South at 12 knots, the Tide was 0.0 and the surrounding depth was 68 feet. The minimum depth recorded was 64 feet.
