The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Mat Sinking Unit (MSU), based in the Vicksburg District, is currently in drydock at the Memphis District Ensley Engineer Yard in Memphis.

Memphis and Vicksburg Districts are working together to perform routine maintenance on this unique piece of equipment in order to get it ready for the summer revetment work season.

The MSU is used to install great sheets of concrete mattress on the riverbank to shield it from erosion and sloughing caused by channel currents and turbulent water associated with river flood stages.

Two students from Christian Brothers University learned about real-world engineering applications from engineers at USACE Memphis District today. 
   Hosted by CBU alumni and USACE civil engineer Carol Jones, Lauren Harrett, a junior, and Sara Regina “Reggie” Raney, a freshman, spent a day meeting with engineers, biologists and archaeologists. Explorations of geospatial engineering, hydraulics and hydrology, channel improvement, design, environmental, geotechnical and levee system analyses, programs and project management were all on their agenda, and concluded with career opportunities available in USACE.
   “I was able to see how what I was learning was being applied in the real world of engineering,” said Raney.
   “As a junior, I’ve completed my major requirements and starting my electives,” said Harrett, “Today’s opportunity has helped me decide which electives to choose.” (USACE Photo/Brenda L. Beasley)
