Public Notice          Project Plans

The applicant proposes modification to previously authorized Permit SWG-2012-00602 to authorize additional dredging of approximately 160,000 cubic yards (CY) of new work material from the TXIT Berth to create an 11-acre siltation basin within the existing, previously authorized 33-acre TXIT Berth that would be dredged to -51 feet mean lower low water (MLLW).  Previously authorized placement areas are onsite:  PA50, San Jacinto, Pelican Island DMPA, five Port of Galveston (POG) former ship slips(#12, #14, #37, #39, and #41) and the POG PA.  Additionally, the applicant is requesting authorization to place the dredge material at the USACE Pelican Island Beneficial Use (BU) Site and the continued authorization for 10 years of maintenance dredging from the berth, including the siltation basin within the berth.  Annually, approximately 250,000 CY of maintenance material is proposed to be placed in any of the previously authorized areas and in addition of Pelican Island BU area.  The purpose of the proposed siltation basin is to capture sediment that leads to the excessive accumulation of silt in the berth, resulting in unsafe navigation conditions.
