HOUSTON — The Coast Guard is conducting navigational aid surveys in southeast Texas, Friday.

Coast Guard crew members aboard Coast Guard Cutters Clamp and Hatchet, 75-foot construction tenders homeported in Galveston, Texas, are working to assess and restore navigational aids.

Coast Guard Aids to Navigation Team Galveston and Coast Guard Station Galveston are also conducting aids to navigation surveys in the area. Coast Guard Station Freeport, Texas, is assessing the aids in the vicinity of Freeport.

Coast Guard crews are focused on rapidly restoring navigational aids to support the safe, secure and efficient marine transportation that bolster American prosperity.

“A well-maintained and marked channel will speed up commerce and relief supplies to those affected by Hurricane Harvey,” said Coast Guard Senior Chief Henry Meyer, officer in charge, Cutter Clamp. “Our job is to help get the economy back to normal.”
