The Houston Ship Channel, still feeling minor effects from mud washed into the waterway during Hurricane Harvey, should be back to its full depth in a month or two.

One small stretch of the ship channel is still undergoing dredging to return to its 45-foot operating depth.

"It takes a long time to move mud out of the ship channel," said Steven Nerheim, director of the U.S. Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston Vessel Traffic Service.

Nerheim gave his annual "State of the Waterway" address to the West Gulf Maritime Association on Wednesday.

In that address, he confirmed that Houston remained the No. 1 Port for imports and exports.
