On behalf of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District, we hope you enjoy this four-minute video infographic highlighting the importance of dredging along the Texas coast, the economic impact maritime commerce has on the nation and the potential consequences of failing to adequately maintain our federal waterways. Dredging is more than just an operations and maintenance (O&M) function. USACE plays a key role in America's well-being by providing a safe, reliable, efficient and environmentally sustainable waterborne transportation systems. This movement of goods for commercial or national security purposes adds value to our nation by creating jobs, facilitating trade and sustaining the nation's economy. Each day, the Galveston District works with its federal, state and local partners to maintain more than 1,000 miles of federally authorized channels in order to keep our vital marine arteries open for waterborne traffic carrying cargo ranging from crude oil to coffee.

Ecologists for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sacramento District tagged 50 steelhead trout and 200 Chinook salmon March 25-27, 2013, at the Coleman National Fish Hatchery in Anderson, Calif., in an effort to study fish behavior along a 75-mile stretch Sacramento River system. Data from the 1-year-olds' downstream journey, will help researchers better evaluate habitat restoration work under the Sacramento River Bank Protection Project - a joint flood risk reduction effort between the district and the state's California Central Valley Flood Protection Board to repair river bank erosion along the Sacramento River and its tributaries.
