The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Galveston District, as tasked by FEMA, recently awarded a contract to Great Lakes Dredge and Dock, in the amount of $69.8 million to remove sediment and debris resulting from Hurricane Harvey from the West Fork of the San Jacinto River.

This emergency project funded by FEMA involves the removal of 1.8 million cubic yards of material within 270 days,” said Curtis Cole, a contracting official with the USACE Galveston District’s Contracting Division.

Corps survey teams from the New Orleans District began collecting data in April to determine the level of shoaling and silt accumulation within the West Fork of the San Jacinto River.

During the public opening, three bids were received: CrowderGulf submitted a bid in the amount of $108.8 million and Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Company bid totaled $69.8 million. RLB Contracting, Inc. was announced as the apparent lowest bid of $33.9 million.

The USACE Galveston District was established in 1880 as the first engineer district in Texas to oversee river and harbor improvements.

The district is directly responsible for maintaining more than 1,000 miles of channel, including 250 miles of deep draft and 750 miles of shallow draft as well as the Colorado River Locks and Brazos River Floodgates.
