PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to extend the time limit for the previously authorized discharge of fill material into 0.01 acre of palustrine forested wetland adjacent to the Houston Ship Channel, and the reroute of 350 linear feet of ephemeral stream to outfall over the existing bulkhead associated with the construction of a 2.9-acre three-barge dock slip.  The work includes construction of a dock house, two loading arm pads, and two mooring structures.  Approximately 385 linear feet of existing bulkhead and riprap will be removed and uplands will be excavated to create a 474-foot-long by 385-foot-wide barge slip.  An approximate 4.19-acre area will be mechanically dredged to a depth of minus 16 feet mean low tide (MLT) plus 1 foot of over dredge.  The newly excavated area will be lined with approximately 707 linear feet of bulkhead, and six fender pilings will be installed.  The dock slip will undergo mechanical and/or hydraulic maintenance dredging for a period of 10 years.  All dredged material and associated effluent discharge was previously authorized to be placed in the following dredged material placement areas (DMPAs):  Rosa Allen, Glanville, Peggy Lake, Alexander Island, and Beltway 8 Tract.  The applicant wishes to add the following DMPAs:  Filter Bed, Stimson Tract, Clinton, Laughlin-Thyssin, East/West Jones, Pinto Lion, Adloy, Goat Island, and Spilman Island.
