Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to mechanically and hydraulically dredge approximately 168,000 cubic yards of material within an approximate 21.42-acre area of the Sun Oil Company Canal to a depth of approximately -7.7 feet NAVD88.  Dredging of an approximate 0.96-acre area that currently separates the canal from the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW) is also proposed in order to provide access to the canal from the GIWW.  Dredging of an additional 2.63 acres of tidal marsh located at the northern end of the canal is also proposed in order to provide drill barge access to two oil and gas exploration well drilling locations.  Dredged material is proposed for discharge in marsh and open water areas adjacent to the canal.  Construction of vinyl sheet piles at various locations along the canal is also proposed in order to prevent discharged fill material from flowing back into the canal.  A 2,000-square-foot separator platform north of the two wells and a 160-square-foot well protection structure at each well location is also proposed.
