Full Public Notice    Project Plans    Mitigation Plans

The applicant proposes to construct a crude condensate storage and marine loading terminal.  Primary project features include a dual vessel berthing area capable of mooring and loading barges and ships, two docks, an onsite Dredged Material Placement Area located in uplands, and various landside support infrastructure, such as storage tanks, roads, parking areas and administrative buildings that would be constructed in uplands.  The proposed vessel berth would be dredged to -45 feet Mean Low Tide (MLT) plus 2 feet advanced maintenance and 2 feet allowable overdepth.  Approximately 2.6 million cubic yards of stiff clay would be dredged using both mechanical and hydraulic methods in association with the approximately 40-acre basin proposed for the berthing area.  A rock revetment would be constructed along the side slopes of the proposed berth, with approximately 20,000 cubic yards of rock material placed across approximately 2 acres below the annual high tide line (AHT).  The two proposed docks and associated marine structures would be 130 feet wide and 185 feet long.  Construction (dredging and excavation) of the proposed berthing area would result in impacts to 2.87 acres of submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) and 0.67 acre of estuarine wetlands located on the La Quinta Channel shoreline.  In addition, 0.04 acre of SAV and 0.1 acre of estuarine wetlands in close proximity to the proposed top of slope may be impacted by equipment accessing the construction area or by long-term sloughing along the top of slope.
