Full Public Notice           Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to hydraulically dredge a 0.41 acre area (1,500-foot-long by 12-foot-wide) of Newton Branch to a depth of 3 feet below the existing bottom (+127 pool elevation) to remove an estimated 2,000 cubic yards of material to provide navigational access to the Trinity River.  The applicant proposes to place the hydraulically dredged material into the waters of Newton Creek inside a cove that is on the eastern side of an unnamed island separating Newton Branch from the Trinity River.  The applicant proposes construct 330 linear feet of hay bales at the entrance to the cove and place erosion cloth, 175 linear feet, across the cove in an east-west direction to contain the hydraulically placed dredge material.  The applicant estimates the final elevation of the placement of the material inside the cove will be at 132 to 132.5 feet.
