    Port of Beaumont



    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
