Full Public Notice           Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to discharge 135,300 cubic yards of sandy clay, 868 cubic yards of rip rap and install sheet piles for the construction of a 9.93-acre storage facility and associated structures.  The proposed facility will allow multiple barges to dock and will extend into Galveston Bay approximately 700 feet by 700 feet from the shoreline.  The applicant is also proposing a concrete bulkhead to be installed on the shoreline on the east side of the property and rip rap will be used on the west and south sides.  The proposed facility will overall include the following:

•             Placing 135,300 cubic yards of fill material comprised of sandy clay from an approved upland source in order to expand the dock facility

•             The installation of a 400-foot by 20-foot sheet pile wall and four 30-foot-long steel pipe piles

•             Place 868 cubic yards of rip rap below high tide on the west side of the property.  A crane will be used to transfer materials to and from barges.  It will hang out 10 feet over the water.

•             The immediate area, measured at 579-foot by 600-foot, in front of the property will be dredged to (-) 10.0 NAVD for maintenance only if silt should build up and affect vessel access.

The purpose of the proposed facility is to provide temporary storage for construction material prior to being transported by barges.
