PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes new work and modifications as an addition to previously authorized Permit SWG-1997-01754.  Such activities include the demolition of the existing loading towers and foundations, existing pedestrian walkway, existing conveyor belt, existing grain dock wharf and the abandonment of the existing onshore mooring point.  New work includes the construction of a new concrete pile supported 600-foot-long by 100-foot-wide dock, new concrete pile supported 200-foot 6-inch-long by 30-foot-wide approach way, approximately 421 linear feet of new proposed revetment system, new fender system and two proposed mooring dolphins.  Additional new work activities include mechanical and/or hydraulic dredging of approximately 26,200 cubic yards of material (1.63 acres) to previously authorized depths of -40 MLLW with a 2-foot overdredge and the discharge of approximately 1,512 cubic yards of concrete fill for the construction of a new revetment system.  Dredged material is proposed to be placed in PA No. 23, 24, 25 or 26, with associated effluent discharge.  The proposed work will take place outside of the limits of the Federal Channel and within the proposed dredging and project areas included in the Port of Beaumont's plans to improve their facility.  The purpose of the project is to remove and build a new grain dock that will allow for the transfer of grain products and multipurpose cargo for the Port of Beaumont.
