Memphis District Corps of Engineers Harbor Dredging Project Delivery Team has awarded a contract for dredging of four local harbors: Elvis Stahr Harbor in Hickman, Ky.; Memphis Harbor-McKellar Lake and Wolf River Harbor in Memphis, Tenn.; and Helena Harbor in Phillips County, Ark.
Dredging of the four harbors involves removing sediment to maintain a specific channel depth for safe navigation in and out of the harbors.
The Harbor Dredging PDT members advancing this critical work are Vickie Watson, Wade Channel, and Danny Hunt, said the district in their official release.
The Inland Dredging Company, Inc. was awarded the contract to perform the harbor dredging.
The Memphis District is responsible for maintenance dredging of ten harbors on the Mississippi River. These harbors serve as vital links to rail and highway transportation systems in the region, helping to deliver products and commodities to and from global markets.
