Memphis District’s Clearing and Snagging Unit works on the river bank near West Memphis, Arkansas, Oct. 10. As the first step of Revetment Operations, crew members clear the river banks of trees and debris to make way for the Bank Grading Unit and the Matt Sinking Unit. The work’s accomplished using a barge mounted dragline, bulldozers, and backhoes. Revetment Operations normally run from July to November each year. (USACE Photo/Brenda Beasley)

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.
