Abstract: The Jacksonville District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is evaluating whether to conduct maintenance dredging in the Gordon River from Gordon Pass to Naples, including the turning basin in upper Naples, Florida, and the turning basin adjacent to the municipal yacht basin (see Figure 1). This project is a federal project under the responsibility of the Corps. The local sponsor for the project is the City of Naples. They are responsible for the lands, easements, right of ways, relocations, and disposal areas for construction and maintenance of the placement areas. The Corps is responsible for maintenance of the waterway. Both the local sponsor’s action and the Corps’s action are federal actions requiring NEPA compliance and documentation. Dredging is anticipated to generate approximately 100,000 cubic yards of dredged material per dredging event (although this number can vary significantly based on shoaling rates). Frequency of dredging is approximately every 5 years. Dredged material that meets the State of Florida’s “Sand Rule” [62B‐41.007(2)(j‐k), F.A.C.] will be placed at the designated beach placement location or in the nearshore of this region based on its suitability. Dredged material not suitable for beach or nearshore placement will be dewatered and transported to a suitable location provided by the local sponsor.
