Full Public Notice     Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to construct and operate a ship and barge terminal to facilitate the transportation of liquefied hazardous gas and atmospheric liquid product on the Houston Ship Channel.  The project would involve dredging an approximate 49-acre area to -45 mean low tide.  This would displace approximately 2,090,470 cubic yards of dredge material.  The applicant is proposing to place those dredged materials into the Lost Lake and Clinton dredged material placement areas.  The project also includes the construction of a dock terminal which would have a 355-foot setback from the Houston Ship Channel.  The Channel side of the proposed dock terminal would be able to accommodate two 920-foot vessels or three 620-foot vessels.  The internal docking area has been designed to accommodate four 300-foot barges or two 490-foot articulated barges.  The project would also involve the installation of seven outfall structures and a retaining wall which would result in the discharge of fill material into 2 wetland areas and Tucker Bayou.  The entire project would impact approximately 0.036 acre of wetlands.
