Full Public Notice     Project Plans

The applicant proposes to construct an electric substation facility to supply customers in the Port of Corpus Christi Industrial Area.  The need for the project resulted from industrial development projects within the area requesting more electrical supply than what is currently available for the area.  The purpose of the proposed project is to construct a facility that would support the applicant’s customers in the Port of Corpus Christi Industrial Area.  The applicant chose the proposed site for the facility because of its proximity to existing electrical transmission lines, proximity to customers, and the limited availability of land within the area.  The proposed project consists of a 3.6-acre (376-foot by 416-foot) substation pad and a 0.5-acre (180-foot by 110-foot) area where an access road would be constructed.  The proposed project would result in the permanent fill of approximately 3.9 acres (20,000 cubic yards) of waters of the U.S., consisting entirely of palustrine emergent wetlands.
