Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to construct a new bulk liquids dock at the Port of Texas City facility (Dock 42/43).  To facilitate proper access to the dock, and to improve navigation safety, the applicant proposes to deepen 2,400 linear feet of the industrial canal from -41 mean lower low water (MLLW) to -46 MLLW and re-align  900 feet of the green toe of the channel.  Re-aligning the green toe would result in an incremental widening of the channel by 0 feet to 104 feet and an additional 1.4 acres of maintained channel.  The proposed project would be constructed using a hydraulic (or cutter-head) dredge, and dredged spoil for this project would be placed in existing dredged material placement area on Snake Island (Shoal Point Terminal: Cell A), which is immediately adjacent to the project area.  The expected dredge quantity for the initial deepening is approximately 194,000 cubic yards.  This includes maintenance and virgin material to a proposed maintained depth of -46 MLLW, plus 2.0 feet of advanced maintenance and 1.0 feet of allowable over depth.  A portion of this material could be utilized to raise, improve, and/or construct levees within the dredged material placement area as needed to increase the capacity.
