USACE to Hold Public Hearing on Luce Bayou Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Galveston District has published a Draft Environmental Impact Statement for a Department for the Army permit from the Coastal Water Authority’s Luce Bayou Interbasin Transfer project, for which an Environmental Impact Statement will be prepared.

The Corps will hold a public scoping meeting Nov. 28, 2012, from 6 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. in the Dayton Community Center at 801 S. Cleveland St., Dayton, Liberty County, Texas.

Staff from the USACE Galveston District and the Coastal Water Authority will be available to answer questions and speak with the public and interested parties regarding concerns and issues that should be considered as the project is studied, evaluated and designed. An open house featuring displays of the proposed project will also be available for public viewing.

The proposed Luce Bayou Interbasin Transfer project includes the following:

– A new water pumping station will be constructed on the Trinity River at Capers Ridge approximately 10 miles north of Dayton, Texas.

– Dual, 108-inch diameter force mains will be constructed extending from the Capers Ridge pump station approximately 3.5 miles to the west and southwest to outfall to the sedimentation settling basin.

– An approximate 20-acre sedimentation settling and storage basin.

– An approximate 23.5 mile clay-lined earthen canal with 4:1 side slopes within a 300- foot easement that would include access roads, berms, chain link perimeter fencing, flow control structures, and metering stations.

– Box culverts at canal and roadway crossings and multiple bawl-ground siphons constructed to facilitate wildlife movement and maintain existing hydrology along the canal conveyance system.

– An approximate 10-acre maintenance facility located approximately six miles north of Dayton, Texas.

– Discharge structure along the southeastern shoreline of Lake Houston.
