SWG-1991-01792: Kirby Inland Marine: Barge Fleeting Area Deepening

Published May 10, 2012

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The applicant proposes to use a combination of hydraulic and
mechanical dredge techniques to deepen an existing, previously authorized barge fleeting area from
-12-foot Mean Low Tide (MLT) to -16-foot MLT. The area to be dredged is 5.7 acres and would
require the displacement of approximately 12,000 cubic yards of dredge material to achieve the
desired -16-foot MLT depth.

The applicant is requesting authorization to place the dredge materials in the following Dredge
Material Placement Areas: Dezavalla, Glendale, House Tract, Stimson Tract, Clinton, Beltway 8
Tract, Lost Lake, Peggy Lake, Alexander Island, and Spilman Island. The applicant is requesting
authorization for 10 years of maintenance dredging for the proposed site. The original work was
authorized by Department of The Army Permit No. 17138. The project site is located within the
Area of Concern described in the Public Announcement jointly issued by the Corps, the
Environmental Protection Agency, and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality on
October 21, 2009, concerning the San Jacinto Waste Pits Superfund Site located in the San Jacinto
River. The project is being coordinated with TCEQ.
