Revised Full Public Notice    Revised Project Plans

The applicant proposes to amend his previously approved project to accommodate a new barge unloading area.  Six monopile breasting structures are now proposed instead of the two that were previously approved.  Three of the monopiles would be located north of the existing dock and three to the south.  The proposed dredging area would be moved closer to the shoreline and would include removal of a portion of the existing shore (6,800 square feet of area and 760 cubic yards of material). A total of 20,700 cubic yards of material would be removed by hydraulic and mechanical methods from two irregularly shaped areas totaling approximately 86,000 square feet of area to achieve the target depths shown in the plans.  Dredged material would be placed in South Shore Dredged Material Placement Area (DMPA) Cell A or Cell B, DMPA No. 1, or the Herbie A. Maurer DMPA.  The new shoreline would be armored by a steel sheetpile bulkhead approximately 230 feet long.  The existing dock would remain in place and a proposed elevated walkway/pipe-bridge, approximately 66 feet long, would span from the shoreline to the dock.
