The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ contractors launched a 27 ton dredger last Thursday into the San Jacinto River as preparations continue for emergency dredging and debris removal along the West Fork of the river.

Two dredgers, measuring 90 feet long, 25 feet wide, were transported in and are being reassembled with dredging set to start September 6, 2018.

Recreational boaters should exercise extreme caution along the river from Highway 59/69 to West Lake Houston Parkway and areas of Lake Houston,” USACE said in their latest release.

The $69.8 million emergency project, located near Kingwood, Texas, involves dredging and debris removal of 1.8 million cubic yards of sediment that has contributed to recent flooding in the area.

This emergency cleanup program was awarded to Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Company (GLDD) on July 6, 2018 and covers about two miles of the West Fork of the San Jacinto River.
