Public Notice          Project Plans

The applicant proposes to modify Department of the Army (DA) Permit SWG-1998-01818 (formerly 21520) to extend the authorized length of Wharf 1 at the Bayport Container Terminal (BPT) by 676 feet at the northeast end to be 1,676 linear feet.  With the proposed Wharf 1 extension, there will be discharge of approximately 23,100 cubic yards of fill below mean high water (MHW) into 3.56 acres of the channel behind the existing bulkhead and to install a bulkhead extension.  Project components also include the mechanical and/or hydraulic dredging approximately 177,000 cubic yards of material from 3.6 acres of the channel to a depth of -48.5 feet mean lower low water (MLLW), with a 2-foot allowable overdredge, as well as the use of bed-leveling, as needed, to maintain dredge depth across the entire length of the terminal wharfs.  There would be surveys conducted before and after bed leveling activities to monitor that the silt does not enter the federal channel.  Lastly, a pile-supported fire boat dock would be constructed at the northwest end of the terminal and consist of an approximately 6-foot-wide by 74.5-foot-long gangway and a 12-foot-wide by 72-foot-long floating pontoon for mooring.
