PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to modify and extend the construction time period for their previous permit, 19845, that lapsed 31 December 2015.  The applicant proposes to deepen the dredge depth at their dry dock slip (2.64 acres) to (-) 40 feet mean lower low water (MLLW) with a 1-foot allowable over depth as well as requests to dredge the southwest corner slip (0.73 acres) to (-) 30 feet MLLW with a 1-foot allowable over depth and an additional 10 years of mechanical and/or hydraulic maintenance dredging of Gulf Copper, Port Arthur, Texas, dock facilities.  The applicant also proposes to extend the dredge pad footprint to 140' 2" downstream and  67' 5" upstream as well as extend the dredge footprint out to the Federal Channel Limit.  An estimated 109,500 cubic yards of material is requested to be dredged.  The applicant proposes for the dredge material to be relocated and placed in USACE Placement Area 11 and/or Placement Area 12 (to include effluent discharge).

The applicant also proposes to install a 581 linear foot sheet-pile bulkhead, to support a new dredge slip area and expand water front facilities.  The proposed project will provide deeper dredge depth to accommodate larger dry dock and additional vessels.
