The applicant proposes to place 40,000 cubic yards of clean sand from Fordyce Materials, Murphy Plant in Nursery, Texas, 2,659 cubic yards of rock for a groin, and 3,725 cubic yards of rock/riprap for a breakwater into Carancahua Bay.  There will be a total of 46,384 cubic yards of fill material placed below the high tide line (HTL) into approximately 2.18 acres of Carancahua Bay for a shoreline restoration project along a 1,750-linear-foot section of Port Alto Beach.

As part of the restoration project, the applicant also proposes to place 1,700 cubic yards on top of the berm, which is a ridge running along the shoreline, to raise the elevation, act as a cap to the berm, and reduce salt water intrusion, into the wetlands.  All stockpiled material will be placed above HTL.
