News in Photos: Dredging Prospect Course

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District’s Navigation Branch recently hosted a Dredging Prospect Course to discuss equipment and dredging method selection.

The officials also discussed the channel design, coastal engineering, sediment characterization, environmental consideration, contaminated sediment and remediation actions, contract documents and construction oversight, dredge safety and dredging cost estimates.

The Galveston District is directly responsible for maintaining more than 1,000 miles of channel, including 270 miles of deep draft and 750 miles of shallow draft.

Dredges are constantly at work keeping vital marine arteries open for waterborne traffic carrying cargo ranging from crude oil to coffee.

Other priorities include construction of jetties or breakwaters to protect harbor and inlet entrances and the locks along the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway at the crossing of the Brazos and Colorado rivers.
