Abstract: This U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Final Environmental Assessment (EA) describes the environmental impacts associated with extending the limits of the existing authorized 46- foot deep Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW) Galveston Harbor Channel for a distance of 2,571 feet to reach the end of the limits of the authorized and currently maintained 41-foot MLLW portion of the channel. The project is located on the upper Texas coast at the mouth of Galveston Bay in Galveston County, Texas. The approximate 4-mile-long Galveston Harbor Channel is included in the Galveston Channel Reach of the Houston-Galveston Navigation Channels (HGNC), Texas, Project and provides entry to the Port of Galveston, Texas. The recommended channel improvement would increase navigation efficiency for deep-draft vessels using this portion of the Galveston Harbor Channel as it would enable maximum vessel loading and allow users of dock facilities at the far end of Galveston Harbor Channel to take advantage of fully loaded vessels alleviating the current practices of light-loading. The project sponsor is the Port of Galveston (POG).
