Public Notice          Project Plans

The applicant proposes to modify Department of the Army (DA) Permit SWG-2003-00516 (formerly 23010) to construct a single boat slip at the terminus of Compass Court on Quintana Island in Freeport, Texas.  The purpose of the boat slip is to perform maintenance on pilot vessels out of the water by constructing a 170-foot by 20-foot slip with a depth of -9 feet Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW), with one foot of allowable overdepth.  Approximately 90 feet of the 170-foot slip is landward of the rock groin on the GIWW.  No wetlands exist in the project footprint or immediate vicinity of the proposed land portion of the proposed new slip.  The 90-foot by 20-foot landward portion of the project will be mechanically dredged in the dry and be bulkheaded with vinyl sheet piling with a concrete cap before the rock and sediment plug making the tie in to the GIWW is removed.  Approximately 198 cubic yards of material will be dredged either mechanically or hydraulically from the 80-foot-long section of the slip that is on the GIWW side of the existing rock to intersect the -10-foot MLLW contour.  Approximately 10.7 cubic yards of rip rap will be discharged below mean high water (MHW) into 48-square-foot of the GIWW at the western terminus of the existing bulkhead to stabilize the end of the bulkhead and shoreline.  The applicant proposes to place the dredged material into an upland confined placement area or for beneficial use at a nearby location, or within Port Freeport Dredge Material Placement Areas (DMPAs) 1 and/or 2, inclusive of the return effluent discharge.
