Why Deepen Ports?

Dredging navigation channels and harbors plays a critical role in the nation's economy and a port's ability to connect American goods, workers and consumers to the global market place. Ship sizes continue to increase, which requires deeper and wider channels to safely and efficiently move freight in and out of U.S ports. Dredging is vital for building strong gateways to trade routes that support America's economy.
