Abstract: The Port of Pascagoula, one of two deep draft commercial harbors in Mississippi, is located in Jackson County, approximately 40 miles west of Mobile, Alabama, and 100 miles east of New Orleans, Louisiana. Deep draft harbor facilities have been developed at two locations within the Port: Pascagoula River Harbor and Bayou Casotte Harbor. The channel serving the Port of Pascagoula extends from the Gulf of Mexico through Horn Island Pass (located between Horn Island and Petit Bois Island) and into Mississippi Sound. The channel proceeds northward and intersects the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW). Just north of the GIWW the channel forks, with the western fork leading to the Pascagoula River Harbor and the eastern fork leading to the Bayou Casotte Harbor. The USACE, Mobile District prepared this FEIS to analyze potential environmental consequences of improvements to the Pascagoula Harbor’s Lower Pascagoula and Bayou Casotte Channels and associated future O&M.
