Dredging Event in Beaumont
Chris Ransome & Associates, Inc. (CRA) and Orion Marine Group have announced their upcoming half-day dredging seminar, “Dredging Your Docks”, to be held on December 2, 2015, at the MCM Elegante Hotel in Beaumont.
CRA and Orion Marine Group have been conducting dredging conferences at other port systems for over the past 10 years.
The seminar is geared to outreach to private stakeholders and the public sector to have open discussions and presentations on dredging and navigation issues.
These topics range from project specific, permitting requirements, planning, development and navigation information.
“This is a great venue for the Southeast Texas maritime industry to meet other stakeholders and network with the public sector. It’s great to have the dredging seminar back in Southeast Texas. We had such a great turnout the first year, and we are looking forward to another,” said Laci Theriot, Marketing Coordinator at CRA.
This year’s speaker line-up includes: Andrew Peters (Texas Dept. of Parks and Wildlife), Col. Richard Pannell (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers- Galveston District), Brian Bader (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers- Galveston District), Capt. Ellen Warner (Sabine Pilots), LTJG Justin Maio (U.S. Coast Guard), and Capt. Robert Burnham (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers- Galveston District).
Mark Coyle from Orion Marine Group and Chris Ransome from CRA, Inc. will discuss topics in private industry dredging and hydrographic surveying.
