PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to construct and operate a confined dredge material placement area (CDMPA) by enclosing a 112.75-acre area with the construction of 25-foot-high levees with one outfall structure to return decant water.  The development of the site would require infrastructure improvements including the construction of levees, installation of an outfall structure within the constructed levees, installation of a 0.15-acre permanent access road, site security infrastructure, and temporary equipment staging areas to support the construction and operation activities at the site.  Based on the wetland and waterbodies delineated by the applicant during their wetland delineation and functional assessment survey, construction of the project is anticipated to permanently impact a total of 58.79 acres of wetlands including 54.70 acres of estuarine emergent wetlands, 4.09 acres of estuarine scrub-shrub wetlands, and 54.11 acres of open water.  The wetland delineation and functional assessment has been completed and was verified by the Corps on 28 July 2021.
