Koenig embarked on her career in the 1980’s when she began working for W&S and shared her expertise for 19 years.?

From its inception in the late 1800's, the hydraulic, or pipeline, dredge has been the dominant machine used for near-shore and in-shore sediment transportation in the United States. These dredges were initially deployed to maintain sufficient channel depths to facilitate river navigation, port access and development. Infrastructure development after World War II created an inland market for sand and gravel mining dredges used in the production of concrete and asphalt. This material dredging market is at least an order of magnitude larger than the navigational dredging market in the US.
