SWG-2008-00106 - Sabine River Authority - Calcasieu Parish

Published June 18, 2015
Expiration date: 7/20/2015

Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to perform maintenance dredging within an approximately 9,700 linear-foot section of the Sabine River Canal #1 for the purposes of restoring the canal back to its original excavated depth.  The canal would be restored back to a 20-foot bottom width with a bottom depth of -8 feet below mean sea level (msl).  The applicant indicated that the canal has silted in over time, presently at -4 feet msl, and is causing a restriction in water flow.  Hydraulic dredging would be performed removing approximately 28,738 cubic yards of material from the canal.  The dredged material would be placed along the north side of the canal in an area that has been utilized in the past for spoil material placement and contained within 6 feet high earthen levees.  The applicant indicated that Canal #1 is the intake for the Sabine River Authority (SRA) canal system, therefore, the decant water from the spoil site would stay in the canal and not discharge into the Sabine River.  After construction, the spoil site would be stabilized by grading, seeding, and fertilizing to prevent future erosion.
