Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), Jacksonville District, is proposing to conduct periodic maintenance dredging of the Federal Fort Myers Beach Harbor (FMBH) project (a.k.a. Matanzas Pass) in Lee County, FL. This would include FMBH Cuts 1-10, wideners and the turning basin (see Figure 1, Project Map). It is anticipated that all of the dredged material would be placed either on the beach between Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) monuments R-178 to R-184 or in the nearshore placement area between DEP monuments R-182 to R-187A. The Federal channel would be maintained to its authorized dimensions of 150-feet wide by 12-feet deep plus 2-feet of allowable over-depth at mean lower low water (MLLW) from San Carlos Bay to Matanzas Pass (FMBH Cuts 1-6) and 125-foot wide by 11-foot deep plus 2-feet of allowable over-depth at MLLW through the Pass to the upper shrimp terminals (FMBH Cuts 7-10 and the turning basin). The accumulation of sediment commonly referred to as shoaling routinely restricts the width of the project channel and reduces its depths.
