Full Public Notice   Project Plans

The applicant is proposing to discharge approximately 41,500 cubic yards of riprap within 5.78 acres of jurisdictional waters of the United States located along the south shore of the GIWW.   The project is divided into two sections, each extending out from the riprap protection found along the banks on either side of the Salt Bayou Structure.  The eastern section is 5,607 feet in length and is located adjacent to Compartment 13/16 to the right of Salt Bayou within the WMA.  The western section is 4,456 feet in length and is located adjacent to Compartment 18.  The project would result in the construction of approximately 10,063 linear feet of rock breakwaters designed for the purpose of protecting the coastal brackish marshes, located south of the GIWW, from erosive wave action occurring as a result of traffic in the channel.  The breakwaters would have a top elevation of +3.0 feet NAVD and a base width of 25 feet.  Rock will be 650# gradation in size. Riprap will be barged in and placed using barge-mounted excavators.  Riprap will be tied into the existing bank by transitioning back to natural ground at a 45 degree angle.  The breakwater will be between 0 and 220 feet from the top of the eroding earthen levee formed by side casting material during dredging of the GIWW and a minimum of 150 feet from the centerline of the channel.
