Survey work boat assist hydrodynamic dredge operation
A Kansas City District work boat performs river bottom surveys while taking part in hydrodynamic dredging operations on the Missouri River November 11, 2020. The Engineering Research and Development Center brought the system to Kansas City District from Vicksburg, Miss., to assist in clearing shoals that developed on the Missouri River due to damages from flooding to the river control structures. The device enabled the combined team to redirect sandy material back into suspension in the current of the river and away from the built-up areas that impede navigation on the river.
