Warwick Boating Facility Project Includes Dredging

Centerville Builders, Inc., 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 constructing a 6-slip boating facility in Warwick, Rhode Island.

The proposed project includes the construction of a new 6-slip boating facility called Pawtuxet by the Sea. The 6 new slips are associated with 6 condominiums in the upland. Work will involve dredging approximately 1,325 cubic yards of material plus installation of a pier, ramp and float system to dock 6 boats.

Approximately 1,325 cubic yards of material will be dredged from an approximately 900-square-foot area to a depth of -5 feet at mean low water. The material will be dredged using a barge-mounted crane with a clamshell bucket. It will be loaded into a scow and towed to a Confined Aquatic Disposal (CAD) cell located in the Providence River.

The dredged material has undergone physical and chemical analysis. It is the Corps preliminary determination that the material is acceptable for disposal at this disposal site.

The dredging portion of the project will impact approximately 0.2 acre of Essential Fish Habitat (EFH) for various species and life stages. Habitat at this site can be described as a mixture of sands and silts. Loss of this habitat may adversely affect some of these species.

However, the Corps has made a preliminary determination that the site-specific adverse effect will not be substantial. Further consultation with the National Marine Fisheries Service regarding EFH conservation recommendations is being conducted and will be concluded prior to the final permit decision.
