On October 15, the last of approximately 50,000 cubic yards of soil was excavated on Mollicy Bayou, a stream course that has not flowed with water since the late 1960's. As part of the larger Mollicy Farms restoration project, the completion of the 11 week effort to reconstruct the 2.5 mile bayou is a major component of reestablishing a functional floodplain.
