The United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is seeking expressions of interest (EOIs) for a dredging and sediment management project through PPP within the Great Lakes region.
The deadline for submitting EOIs has been extended to 26 March 2015.
USACE has the responsibility to operate and maintain 140 federally authorized harbors and channels on the Great Lakes. In addition, USACE operates 20 confined disposal facilities. USACE is seeking responses to ascertain interest and feasibility of exploring a host of solutions to the following three challenges:
Great Lakes harbors and channels support the country as the 4th largest economic zone in North America. Maritime transportation infrastructure in the scope of this project includes federally authorized, high use, commercial harbors as well as low use, commercial and recreational harbors; which provide the foundation for billions of dollars of revenue regionally. Industry, manufacturers, shippers and consumers need reliable and well maintained waterways on the Great Lakes.
