Abstract: The purpose of the O&M of the Manatee Harbor Florida navigation project is to continue to maintain safe and efficient vessel navigation. The accumulation of sediment, commonly referred to as shoaling, within the limits of the Federal channel created the need to complete this project. The shoaling has reduced channel depths, hindering safe, efficient vessel navigation. Periodic dredging and dredged material placement is required to remove accumulated sediments and thus maintain the channel to its federally authorized dimensions. The 2002 EA evaluated periodic operation and maintenance (O&M) dredging for Phase I and Phase II of the project. This 2019 Environmental Assessment (EA) evaluates the periodic O&M dredging of Phase III, the south channel extension, of the Manatee Harbor Florida navigation project at Port Manatee, and placement of dredged material in several different potential placement locations, depending on the quality and quantity of the dredged material, placement site capacity, and funding. The 2019 EA adopts the analysis conducted in the 2002 EA where the information is valid and applicable to this evaluation. This EA also completes the required analysis under National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
