    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.
