Abstract: This Environmental Assessment covers the life of the project, or, 10 years, as applied for in the application for Water Quality Certification. Over the next 10 year period, it is estimated that this project may shoal approximately 100,000 cubic yards annually from the entrance and inner channel and 160,000 cubic yards from the turning basin at a three-year interval. Figures 1 and 2 show the locations of the dredging and disposal sites. Since the initial construction, sand and sediments have accumulated in the harbor and channel reducing the navigable capacity of the project. In order to meet the public need as authorized by Congress, the Federal standard must be maintained. The decision to be made is whether to dredge the channel and where it is environmentally and economically feasible to place the material.
