About 150 people and 30 exhibitors attended the 33rd Western Dredging Association (WEDA)/ Texas A&M 44th Annual Dredging Seminar in Honolulu, Hawaii, from August 25 to 28. After opening remarks from WEDA President Robert Wetta of DSC Dredge, LLC, Col. Gregory Gunter, USACE, Pacific Division Deputy Commander, Hawaii, one of the few Corps representatives, spoke about the necessity of harbors and navigation, which supports every facet of life on the Hawaiian Islands. The budget issues were among the challenges he talked about for the Corps, but the focus of the majority of his talk was on transforming the civil works program to be more innovative and collaborative. That means important partnerships with groups that have a common interest in navigation, and doing things better at the Corps. The 3-3-3 concept tries to simplify Corps initiative so they are more manageable and more streamlined. Under this rule of three, Col. Gunter said studies by the Corps must be completed within three years, have a budget under $3 million, and go through three levels of review. The Corps has to be ready “to do less, with less,” Gunter said.
