USACE Holds Meeting on JAXPORT Dredging

On Oct. 25, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District hosted a public meeting on the Jacksonville Harbor Navigation Deepening Study.

The purpose of the meeting was to provide stakeholders with an opportunity to discuss the preliminary results of the ecological models that are being used for this study. These models are considered to be a critical component of this effort, and are being used to help assess potential effects that proposed deepening may have on the St. Johns River ecosystem.

The Jacksonville District is conducting a study to increase the depth of the existing federal channel along the St. Johns River from its current project depth of 40-feet to a maximum depth of 50-feet. The study is focused on the portion of the harbor up to river mile 13. The study will evaluate navigation concerns and provide recommendations for investigating navigation improvements.
