The U.S. Army Engineer District, Galveston, conducts navigation channel maintenance and operations along the Texas coast from the Sabine River on the north to the Brownsville Ship Channel on the south. The Galveston District has identified a need to have both real-time and recorded water-level data in order to conduct navigation channel maintenance and operation, coastal engineering, and environmental regulatory functions in an economical and accurate way. This report identifies general and specific needs for water-level information, and gives recommendations for obtaining such information. Communications alternatives for supplying real-time, voice- reported, and archived data to the Galveston District are discussed
