Inland Dredging Company has been awarded the first Corps of Engineers contract that requires an automated pipeline dredge monitoring system which transmits real time work events and non-effective events recorded on board the dredge to the National DQM Support Center for processing and analysis. Inland has taken the lead, nationally, in developing the soft-ware and installing the sensors on the Kelly L, and soon on the Ingenuity. The Kelly L system has been completed and the Corps of Engineers has issued the first pipeline dredge DQM certification in the nation. The dredging contract that requires the use of this system will commence in March.
