Col. Christopher Lestochi, district commander, discusses dredging operations with James Holcroft, captain of the Essayons, a Corps-owned-and-operated hopper dredge from the Portland District, and Rich Wilson, director of the Port of Anchorage, during a tour of the vessel, June 12, 2013, at the Port of Anchorage, Alaska. The Essayons was in Alaska to dredge the Cook Inlet Navigation Channel after a sudden surge in shoal material in the channel during the past two years reduced depths and affected navigation. The channel is the only Coast Guard marked route for all cargo and fuel ships supplying the Port of Anchorage.
