Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to amend Department of the Army (DA) Permit SWG-2014-00106, a letter of permission issued 4 September 2014, for construction of a floating dock system including two sheetpile breakwaters totaling 255 linear feet, to allow the mooring of a Port of Houston fireboat.  Subsequent modeling showed the breakwaters would be more effective if built farther from the dock, and the applicant now proposes to build a steel breakwater to the north and to the east of the authorized dock to protect the mooring of a fireboat from wakes of ships transiting the Bayport Ship Channel.  The proposed breakwater would consist of an 85-foot-long full depth (-10 feet Mean Low Tide) section and a 104-foot-long partial depth (-3.2 feet Mean Low Tide) section.  Two of the breakwater pilings would be protected from scour with a total of 150 cubic yards of 1-foot-diameter armor rocks on top of a bedding layer of 60 cubic yards of quarry spalls, resulting in a total of approximately 0.03 acres of fill in waters of the U.S.  The area around the dock system is authorized to be dredged by DA Permit SWG-1998-01818, which is valid until 31 December 2020.
