Corpus Christi Signs Dredge MOU

Posted on September 27, 2016

The Port Corpus Christi Authority has signed a memorandum of understanding with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District for a project partnership to carry out preliminary work for channel improvement at the port.

The project will include sediment testing services associated with dredging the entrance channel and is expected to take about 10 months to complete.

“The Port of Corpus Christi is one of the top 10 ports in the nation regarding tonnage and a strategic component in strengthening regional economic development. We are fortunate to have a strong partnership with the port and look forward to continued efforts to support dredging work that will keep waterways navigable for vessels importing and exporting goods along the Texas coast,” said Col. Lars Zetterstrom, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District commander.

The execution of the MOU for “work in kind” will make the port eligible to receive credit for the cost to conduct the sediment sampling. Port Corpus Christi handles breakbulk cargo, project cargo with a particular focus on wind energy and oil and gas.
