International Dredging Review
MENUMENU

The GLDD cutterhead dredge Texas ran aground at the Brownsville-Santiago Pass Texas south jetty during a storm on Thursday January 20. A Coast Guard report said the dredge suffered severe damage and was towed to Port Isabel. The crew transferred fuel from the damaged fuel tank to un-damaged tanks to reduce the risk of pollution.

The Texas was working on a Corps of Engineers contract to dredge the Brownsville Ship Channel and assist in the re-nourishment of South Padre Island beaches.
