Abstract: San Juan Harbor is located on the north coast of Puerto Rico and provides access to deep‐draft vessel traffic using terminal facilities located in the city of San Juan. These port facilities handle most of the cargo for Puerto Rico. It is the island’s principal port, handling over 75% of the commonwealth’s non‐petroleum and non‐coal waterborne commerce and is the only harbor on the north coast affording protection in all types of weather. Maintenance dredging within the San Juan Harbor is required to provide unrestricted navigation for ocean‐going vessels calling upon the port facilities of San Juan. The purpose of this project is to maintain navigational channels and comply with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers regulations requiring the use of the least costly dredging and dredge material disposal alternatives consistent with sound engineering and environmental practices, including meeting all Federal environmental requirements such as those established under the Clean Water Act and the Marine Protection, Research, and Sanctuaries Act.
