The Port of Beaumont Board of Commissioners today voted unanimously to authorize or ratify emergency purchases or contracts for response to Hurricane Harvey.

Contracts related to Hurricane Harvey include services for debris removal and dredging in order to facilitate the movement of vessels at the port, according to Port Director and CEO Chris Fisher.

“We have pending a contract for emergency dredging to be performed,” Fisher said. “Currently, the emergency dredging is being performed at the channel but we’ll also need emergency dredging at our docks and wharves to resume a full 40 foot depth at the Port of Beaumont. Listen (6:27)
