The city of Salem is seeking a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District to conduct work in waters of the U. S. in conjunction with dredging, disposal of dredged material and installing docks and other structures for a new commercial marina in Salem, Mass.

The city of Salem proposes mechanical dredging, with ocean disposal of the material, in an existing undisturbed basin off of Salem Harbor and installing docks and associated structures, to create a new municipal commercial marina for fishing vessels off of the city’s property at 10 Blaney Street in Salem.

Specific work includes dredging of a sub-tidal area totaling approximately 47,000 square feet (estimated volume of material to be removed is 13,565 cubic yards) to a depth of –9 feet mlw with a 1-foot over-dredge, dredging of an inter-tidal area of approximately 300 square feet, installing approximately 6,165 square feet of pile-anchored floating docks (29 pilings), a 30-foot by 30-foot floating dock over the archaeological area, a 60-foot aluminum access ramp, a landing float, and a short sheet pile wall 60 linear feet long around the landing float.

The dredged material will be disposed of in the Massachusetts Bay Disposal Site.
