Abstract: Wilmington Harbor, located on North Carolina's southeast coast, is one of the state's two deepdraft ports and a major contributor to its economy. The Wilmington Harbor navigation project connects deep water of the Atlantic Ocean with North Carolina State Ports Authority facilities at Wilmington, waterfront facilities in downtown Wilmington, and several businesses north of the City of Wilmington, by way of a 38-mile-long channel along the Cape Fear River. The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Wilmington District, is responsible for maintaining the federally authorized Wilmington Harbor navigation project. The primary disposal facility for dredged material from the Upper Harbor reaches of the Wilmington Harbor is the Eagle Island Confined Disposal Facility (CDF), which is located on the peninsula between the Cape Fear and Brunswick Rivers, south of U.S. Highway 74/76. Improvements to the Eagle Island CDF are required to provide adequate dredged material disposal capacity for continued maintenance dredging of the Wilmington Harbor navigation project. This Environmental Assessment (EA) addresses the improvement of Cells 1, 2, and 3 of the Eagle Island CDF in relation to other alternatives.
