Full Public Notice    Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to hydraulically and/or mechanically dredge all docks (see attached plans for entire listing) located within the Port of Texas City boundaries to previously authorized depths and to perform maintenance dredging to previously authorized depths for a period of 10 years.  The applicant proposes to perform silt blade/water injection intermittent maintenance dredging for a period of 10 years to previously authorized depths (Department of the Army Permit SWG-2001-01855) at Docks 11, 12, 15, 16, 18, 19, 20, 22N, 22S, 40, 41, 45, 50, 51, 52, 54A, 54E, 56, 57, 58, 59.  Most of these docks will contour the volume of material evenly over the bottom depth of the dock unless a created sediment basin is needed.  All maintenance dredged material will be placed within Placement Areas 5, 6, and Shoal Point Dredged Material Placement Area (DMPA), formerly known as Snake Island DMPA.  The exception to placement of material only applies to those docks authorized for intermittent silt blade/water injection maintenance dredging when this method is employed.
