Cleveland Harbor Dredging Plan Revealed

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Buffalo District, hosted on Tuesday, February 17th 2015, a public hearing regarding the dredging of Cleveland Harbor at the request of the Ohio Attorney General.

USACE also conducted a media roundtable on Wednesday, February 18, 2015, to address follow-up questions.

At the hearing, Buffalo District Commander LTC Karl D. Jansen explained how USACE intends to dredge Cleveland Harbor in 2015 without using open-lake placement of dredged sediment.

The focus of the hearing was to describe the Corps scientific analysis that concluded sediment in one portion of the Cuyahoga River federal navigation channel met federal guidelines for safe open-lake placement.

Cleveland’s federal navigation channel extends six miles upstream from the mouth of the Cuyahoga River. The Federal Standard in the lower five miles of the river (lower river channel) remains CDF confinement. These sediments are unsuitable for open-lake placement in part because they have not been recently sampled and tested.

The Federal Standard for sediments dredged from the uppermost mile of the channel (upper river channel) is open-lake placement.
