USACE Galveston Conducts Sediment Source Workshop

The USACE’s Galveston District has partnered with the Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management (BOEM), Gulf of Mexico Outer Continental Shelf (GoM OCS) Region, Texas General Land Office (TGLO), and the Offshore Operators Committee (OOC), to conduct a GoM sediment resource-offshore infrastructure two-day partnering workshop on November 29 and 30, 2018.

The intent was for synchronizing the needs of planning, designing, constructing, and maintaining coastal storm risk management projects, coastal ecosystem restoration projects, and offshore oil and gas infrastructure projects, across the GoM from the long term planning perspective.

Science, data requirements, workflows and tools were identified for development and integration among the partnering agencies in synch with the needs of the Coastal Texas Protection and Restoration Feasibility Study, anticipating these long lead item needs for use in the Pre-construction, Engineering, and Design (PED) phase, after production of a Chief’s Report during Fiscal Year 21.
