Abstract: This Detailed Project Report and Environmental Assessment presents the findings of the Section 204 Beneficial Use of Dredged Material for Ecosystem Restoration Project, Buffalo Outer Harbor – Slip 3, and has been prepared to document the plan formulation process and the potential environmental effects associated with the implementation of restoration alternatives for the proposed site. The geographic scope of this study consists of “Slip 3,” located along the northern portion of the Buffalo Outer Harbor, directly south of Wilkeson Pointe Park and north of Michigan Pier, within the City of Buffalo. The slip is located less than one mile south of the Buffalo Inner Harbor and the mouth of the Buffalo River. The overall goal of the project is to contribute to the restoration of aquatic ecosystem functions that have been lost or degraded in this region. The eastern Lake Erie/upper Niagara River basin has been highly modified by deforestation, urban development, pollution, and loss of habitat. The proposed ecosystem restoration action would create wetland and aquatic habitat within a formerly used commercial shipping slip which would be of significantly higher quality than is currently found in the Buffalo Inner and Outer Harbors adjacent to the Niagara River.
