Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to perform maintenance dredging within a 2,200-linear-foot section of the Vinton Navigation Channel for the purposes of maintaining the channel at a consistent, adequate depth for navigation.  The channel would be restored to previously permitted dimensions of an 80-linear-foot bottom width, a 100- linear-foot top width, and bottom depth of -10.5 feet below mean sea level.  The mouth of the channel, at confluence with Intracoastal Waterway, would be deepened from a -10.5- foot depth to a -14.0-foot depth below mean sea level and widened from an 80-linear-foot bottom width to a 464-linear-foot bottom width.  Due to project constraints, a combination of hydraulic suction and bucket dredging would be required throughout the project.
