Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to discharge 4,000 cubic yards of 18-inch graded rock in 0.70 acres of East Galveston Bay to facilitate the construction of a 2,500-linear-foot breakwater.  The breakwater is proposed to be constructed in two sections to avoid placing rock on an existing underground pipeline.  The smaller length of breakwater will be 186 feet in length and consist of approximately 298 cubic yards (CY) of 18-inch graded rock.  The larger breakwater will be 2,314 linear feet and consist of approximately 3,702 CY of 18-inch graded rock.  The crown will be set at an elevation of +3.5 NA VD88 with a width of 2-foot, a slope of 1.25:1 on the shoreline side, and a 1.5:1 on the bay side of the breakwater.  The applicant is also proposing to install five day beacons consisting of a 10-inch-diameter by 25-foot-long timber post either driven or jetted into place with a 3-foot by 3-foot sign.  The proposed 2,500-linear-foot breakwater is designed to reduce the impacts of wave energy on the shoreline and accrete sediments so that new fringe marsh habitat may be formed.
