Dredger Essayons at Work

The Essayons, a Corps-owned and operated hopper dredger, recently removed 1.6 million cubic yards of shoal material from the Cook Inlet Navigation Channel.

The project was completed with the help of the Westport, a suction dredger owned and operated by Manson Construction.

Dredging is a necessary maintenance operation for harbors to allow safe passage of marine vessels.
