The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District staff executed a modification to the West Fork San Jacinto River Emergency Debris Removal contract effective June 7, 2019, to dredge an additional 497,400 cubic yards of material that was deposited in the mouth of the San Jacinto River from Hurricane Harvey.
 
"This contract modification will ensure a decrease in threats to critical infrastructure and lower the risk to potential loss of life," said Charles Wheeler, USACE Galveston District project manager. "This is an ongoing contract that is part of a Federal Emergency Management Agency mission assignment."
 
According to USACE Galveston District officials, the dredged material will be placed at the existing location referred to as Placement Area 2, which is located approximately 10 miles upriver. The additional dredging is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2019, with the demobilization of the equipment completed by early 2020.

I am so glad COH didn't screw this up. The reports of their dragging their rear end getting the package put together for approval had me worried.

I wander how many pockets had to be lined first for the contract to get approved.

It'd be great if they could also remove the debris I encounter on my kayak in their confederate flag marked boats who fly around blasting bro-country at near-deafening volumes

I think Great Lakes knew this as both of the dredges were on the E side of the WLHP bridge Sun morning, first time I have seen them both together so I thought they were preparing to tag team that mouth bar. I have said it before, I hope they make a map and show where they have worked for navigational purposes going forward.

It is nowhere near all of the mouthbar ……. "The Army Corps announced Monday that it will begin dredging approximately 500,000 cubic yards of the giant sand bar at the mouth of the San Jacinto West Fork. It has been linked to flooding in the Humble-Kingwood-Atascocita area. However, previous estimates put the total volume at close to 2 million cubic yards, with the volume due to Harvey at 1.4 million cubic yards." per Bob Rehak's Reduce Flooding site.
