Dredging Contractors of America Delegation at Capitol Hill

The Dredging Contractors of America (DCA) said in their latest announcement that they had a very successful Washington, DC fly-in this past week. 

It was a good and solid effort made by all to demonstrate the resolve of the U.S-Flag dredging industry, DCA said.

“I am pleased with the success of this fly-in to Washington, DC,” said Dredging Contractors of America CEO and Executive Director William P. Doyle. “Our companies ensure that the Americas’ ports are big ship ready for expediting U.S. Exports. The U.S dredging industry has the capacity to fulfill all dredging projects in the United States. The U.S.-flagged dredging fleet totals more than 400 dredges.”

DCA’s Michael Gerhardt added: “The U.S.-flag dredging industry is in a period of strong growth. This sector has invested over a billion dollars recently in U.S. shipyards constructing approximately 30 new vessels including dredges, barges, tugs and other equipment.”

The DCA delegation to Capitol Hill was led by industry leaders including:

  • Devon Carlock (Cottrell Contracting);
  • Bill Hanson (Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company);
  • Phyllis Harden (Pine Bluff Sand & Gravel);
  • Dan Hussin (Manson Construction);
  • Chris Kirk (Jay Cashman, Inc.);
  • Fred Paup (Manson Construction);
  • Ted Smith (Marine Tech).

The Dredging Contractors of America is a non-profit trade association that represents the interests of the U.S. dredging and marine construction industry and its members for over 30 years.
