PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to discharge 1,788 cubic yards of fill in the form of 8-foot by 20-foot by 4.5-inch articulating concrete mats (ACMs) into 4.2 acres of Galveston Bay to cover a 24-inch-diameter pipeline, which has less than 36 inches cover.  A barge with crane, materials and material barges, work boats, and project essential personnel and divers will be mobilized to the project site for ACM placement.  The crane will lower the mats to the bed of the bay where divers will work to position and place the ACMs atop the areas with shallow cover.  The ACMs will overlap one another by 2 feet and be connected to each other with stainless steel worm drive connectors.  No areas will be hydraulically dredged.  The edges of the mat system will be buried into the bay bottom using a water jetting apparatus that will create a trench approximately 2-foot by 1.5-foot for the length of each side of the ACM system.  Approximately 6,791 cubic yards of native sediment will be temporarily discharged from jetting.  Silt curtains will be implemented to reduce impacts from sedimentation caused by the project.  No land disturbance is proposed for this project.  All work will occur from vessels in Galveston Bay.  The applicant’s plans are enclosed in 8 sheets.
