Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) is proposing to dredge shoaled areas of the North Boat Harbor at Petersburg, Alaska. The purpose of the proposed dredging project is to restore design depths to allow for safe passage of vessels using the harbor. The harbor is shoaling in five areas with varying design depth requirements. A total of approximately 26,400 cubic yards of sediments are expected to be dredged with a clamshell dredge. A transport barge (scow barge) would carry the material to an existing ramp or off-loading facility in the northern portion of the harbor where the material would be offloaded into watertight trucks for transport to the Petersburg Landfill. The Federal action concludes with initial disposal of the dredged material at the Petersburg Landfill. The City of Petersburg is accepting ownership and responsibility for the dredged material after initial placement in the landfill. The city is presently coordinating development of a disposal plan with the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation to use the dredged material as a cap for an existing pile of metal at the landfill.
