Public Notice          Project Plans

The applicant proposes to mechanically dredge an access route and a slip approximately 241 feet north of the Houston Ship Channel within Scott Bay.  The access route and proposed slip dredge footprint will be approximately 241,340 total square foot.  Dredging will be conducted to -7-foot mean lower low water (MLLW).  Approximately 3,295 cubic yards of dredge material will be excavated and hauled offsite.  All dredge material will be hauled off via barge and placed within Adloy dredge material placement area (DMPA).

Additionally, thirteen 5-pile clusters will be installed around the slip for drilling barge stabilization.  A typical 10-foot by 20-foot well protector platform will be constructed upon successful completion of the well.  

*Note, the 2,045 cubic yard rock pad that was originally proposed has been removed from the project scope.  Additionally, the cubic yards of dredge have been reduced from 15,364 cubic yards to 3,295 cubic yards since the original public notice, issued 25 August 2022.

This second notice is being issued to reflect the updates to the original project scope.
