USACE Galveston District Awards $1.7 Million Dewatering Contract

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, has awarded a small business contract in the amount of $1.7 million to Shoreline Foundation Inc., for dewatering of Dredged Material Placement Area 14 in Chambers County, Texas.

“Dewatering allows for the outflow of excess water which helps to consolidate material within the site and increase the placement area’s capacity to hold more dredge material from the Houston Ship Channel for future dredging contracts,” said Tricia Campbell, an operations manager with the USACE Galveston District’s Navigation Branch.

“This process is part of the district’s Disposal Area Management Practices which ensures placement areas are prepared for future dredging activities.”

Dewatering contracts are a key component of the Corps’ overall management of dredged material placement areas.

Each year, the USACE Galveston District dredges approximately 30 to 40 million cubic yards of material from Texas channels to fulfill its mission of keeping waterways open for navigation and commerce (benefiting 28 ports handling 500 million tons of commerce annually).

Work is scheduled to begin in March 2016 and is expected to be completed by August 2016.
