Waterway Security

The Sabine-Neches Navigation District funds and maintains responsibility for waterway security on navigable waters of Jefferson County.

Due to the nature of the waterway and its various uses, security is crucial to ensure safe ship transportation, the safety of industries along the waterway and the safety of those who live near or recreate on the waterway. SNND provides funding for waterway security, which is implemented by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office. SNND approves all plans and budgets related to waterway security.
