Port of Seattle: East Waterway Dredging Proposal

The Port of Seattle has completed an environmental analysis, including review of pertinent and available environmental information and preparation of a State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) Checklist for the East Waterway Maintenance Dredging Program.

The plan includes a 10-year programmatic authorization to conduct routine maintenance dredging as necessary to maintain established navigational and berthing depths within the East Waterway (EW).

The East Waterway Maintenance Dredging Program is intended to ensure that permitted operational elevations in the EW are effectively maintained to address customer needs. To accommodate ongoing maintenance activities associated with the East Waterway Maintenance Dredging Program, the Port is requesting a 10-year authorization for the project.

This dredging scheme includes aquatic areas south of the Downtown Seattle Central Waterfront District, east of Harbor Island, and north of the Spokane Street Bridge. The project involves berth areas associated with several Port of Seattle facilities, including Terminals 46, 30, 25, and 18, as well as Slip 27 and portions of the federal navigation channel.

No action will be taken on the proposed project until after the 14-day public comment period expires on March 13, 2015. Comments on this proposal must be submitted by 4:00 pm on March 13, 2015.
