SWG-1998-02534 - Southwest Shipyard, LP - Houston Ship Channel - Harris County, Texas

Public Notice          Project Plans

The applicant proposes modifications to previously authorized Department of the Army (DA) Permit SWG-1998-02534 (formerly 14209) to mechanically dredge approximately 20,000 cubic yards from a 1.39-acre area of the Houston Ship Channel to maintain adequate depths and improve the functionality of existing dry docks currently in use.  The applicant proposes to place approximately 10,000 cubic yards of the dredge material into an approximate 0.49-acre open water area of the Houston Ship Channel directly adjacent to the dredge site along the applicant’s southern slip to alleviate problems associated with a shallow basin caused by debris and sediment accumulation, and to create additional uplands to expand the usable footprint of the facility to serve as an equipment storage area.  Upon sediment sample collection and review of sediment test results, any dredge material not placed within the southern slip will be transported for off-site disposal at one of the following permitted landfills:  Republic McCarthy Road, Gulfwest Republic Landfill, Waste Management Alvin-Coastal Plains RDF, WM Seabreeze Landfill, or GFL/Fort Bend RL.  Prior to the discharge of dredge material into the southern slip, the applicant proposes to construct an approximate 165-linear-foot bulkhead to contain the material and create a continuous bulkhead along the applicant’s property to restore the historical footprint of the facility prior to 1978.
