ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Great Lakes’ rivers and lakes division was contracted by the USACE – Vicksburg District to dredge portions of the district’s commercial shipping areas that had been heavily affected by a persistent drought. In an effort to counteract the area’s extreme low water conditions, the Corps’ Vicksburg District designed an emergency dredging project to deepen shallow-draft ports between Greenville and Vicksburg in the state of Mississippi.
