Emergency Dredging of San Jacinto River on the Table

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, is requesting input from industry and others parties for an upcoming emergency dredging of the San Jacinto River.

According to the Corps, the Government has a requirement to dredge and remove shoal material within the West Fork of the San Jacinto River from Interstate 69 to the confluence of Lake Houston.

Dredging limits, production rates, completion time and liquidated damages will be determined by the H&H modeling,” USACE said. “Excessive debris from Hurricane Harvey is exacerbating and impeding the free flow of water down this portion of the West Fork of the San Jacinto River.”

The Galveston District will be holding an Industry Day on the proposed work on 26 April 2018 at 10:00 a.m. Central Standard Time (CST) and the meeting will be broadcast via Web.
