VIDEO: All Set for San Jacinto Dredging

The preparation activities for emergency dredging and debris removal along the West Fork of the San Jacinto River are moving forward.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ contractors launched a 27 ton dredger last Thursday into 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.

The $69.8 million 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.
