    Port of Beaumont

    BEAUMONT, TX, UNITED STATES

    07.29.2019

    Story by Daniel Rojas 

    Federal Emergency Management Agency

    we are the third fastest-growing port in
    the country and we have the fifth


    largest amount of tonnage of all ports
    in the country. So there's no small

    significance to having the port of
    Beaumont back in operation


    We began working with the FEMA team
    probably within a month of the storm.


    There was some emergency dredging as I mentioned
    to get our water depths back at the face


    of each dock and there was various
    debris scattered across the port waters


    that needed to be removed after Harvey.
    FEMA's also been helpful in the sense


    that they've encouraged us to look for
    ways to mitigate this damage. And this is


    actually one such area where we were
    able to not only put back what we lost


    but make it a bit more resilient than it
    originally was. There was a significant


    amount of shoreline erosion with the
    high river stage and quick currents


    after Harvey. Our project and our
    redesign is going to be to re-stabilize


    armor this slope with a more resilient
    concrete revement mattress.


    Rehabilitation and repair efforts are
    ongoing on various port facilities.


    It's been an exciting time to see not only
    these projects restoring what we lost


    but also the future growth that the port
    is planning on
