Public Notice          Project Plans

The applicant proposes to discharge a maximum of 273,000 cubic yards of beach quality sand into approximately 35.8 acres of waters of the US below high tide line for the purpose of beach nourishment.  The applicant is proposing to use two potential local borrow areas as depicted on the drawings; 1) San Luis Pass boat ramp channel and 2) an adjacent dredge material placement area (DMPA).  If these two sites are not available, the applicant is requesting to use one or more of the following upland borrow sites:  Vulcan Materials Kyle Pit (Fordyce), Port of Bay City, Bruce Evans Property, Krumwiede (River Bottoms Sands), Sunbird/Sunset Cove Subdivision, Pepper Cove at Terramar Beach Subdivision and Stavanger.  Access to the project site will be via County Road 257.  The sand material from the boat ramp channel will be transported to the project site through a multi-step process involving hydraulic and/or mechanical methods of material transportation via dredge material pipeline or trucking to the proposed beach nourishment template.  The sand material from the DMPA will be mechanically excavated and trucked to the placement area or hydraulically pumped via a material transport pipeline to the beach nourishment template.  The hydraulic pipeline will be temporarily placed within the proposed 50-foot-wide pipeline corridor depicted on the drawings in order to reach the proposed beach fill template.
