Dredging Engineering Coursework Completed
March 19, 2015
Recently, Charles Parker, President, of River Sand completed the Dredging Engineering Short Course through the Center for Dredging Studies at Texas A&M University. It was the 41st Annual Class and had a record attendance this year from professionals in the dredging industry representing the US (from Alaska to Florida) and the world (from Europe to Africa).
The class focused on several aspects of River Sand, Inc.’s dredging work including hydraulic cutterhead dredge performance and efficiency, mechanical dredging, contaminated sediment treatment, dewatering techniques, and more. Charles graduated from the class and enjoyed the experience of listening and speaking with other dredging professionals. It was an opportunity to improve upon the techniques and share some of our own that we incorporate when dredging in Georgia and the Atlanta region.
