Full Public Notice    Project Plans

The applicant proposes to construct four breasting dolphins and two shore anchors with a connecting walkway/pipeway for the on-loading and off-loading of petroleum products from ships and barges.  The applicant proposes to increase the amount of material to be hydraulically and mechanically dredged an additional 160,000 cubic yards from the previously authorized 181,000 cubic yards for a total of approximately 341,000 cubic yards of material from a 7.66-acre area adjacent to the Tule Lake Channel to be placed into one of the following Dredge Material Placement Areas (DMPAs): (1) Tule Lake DMPA – Cells A, B & C; (2) Suntide DMPA; (3) South Shore DMPA – Cells A & B; (4) DMPA No. 1; and/or (5) Herbie Mauer DMPA.  The applicant states that no impacts will occur to the approximately 0.13 acres of tidal fringe wetlands and intertidal sand flats found along the property’s shoreline. 

The project was originally permitted on 2 January 2015 to dredge a 7.23-acre area of open water within Tule Lake Channel to a depth of -25 feet Mean Low tide (MLT).  The applicant is now requesting authorization to modify the currently authorized permit to a depth of -45 feet Mean Lowest Low Water (MLLW) in order to load and offload larger vessels.  The dock geometrics, walkways and structures have remained the same except for the increased structural capacities.
