Full Public Notice    Project Plans

The applicant proposes to amend the existing permit to construct a new ship dock (Ship Dock 1) consisting of a 90-foot-long by 60-foot-wide pile-supported platform, a pile-supported access trestle and pipe rack, 14 mooring and berthing dolphins, and initial dredging at the facility to a depth of -45 feet using both mechanical and hydraulic methods.  The project would also include a new barge dock consisting of a 60- by 40-foot pile-supported platform with a full-face fender system, a pile-supported access trestle and pipe rack, four barge mooring and berthing dolphin monopoles.  Also, two new mooring and berthing dolphin monopoles would be installed at the existing Ship Dock 2.  Approximately 150,000 cubic yards of material would be dredged for Ship Dock 1 under this action.  No dredging is proposed at the barge dock.  The proposed dredge disposal areas are the Tule Lake and/or Suntide Dredge disposal areas.  The purpose of the project is to expand the terminal in order to handle deeper draft ships and barges, and to be able to load and unload larger numbers of vessels utilizing the facility.
