Update: Dredge Booster Instillation

The dredge booster was installed in the Galveston Bay near the confluence of the Bayport Ship Channel and the Houston Ship Channel. The booster allows the dredge to work on a longer dredge pipeline and maintain good production. It does not move and is likely to stay where it is currently installed through the duration of the contract.  Updated 02/10/15
