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.
