Cleveland Dredging Plan Outlined

The USACE Buffalo District has released documents that have been submitted to the Ohio EPA, requesting a Clean Water Act Section 401 water quality certification for open lake placement of dredged sediment from the upper Cuyahoga River federal navigation channel.

According to the open letter to Lake Erie Stakeholders, USACE is planning to dredge 225,000 cubic yards of sediment from the Cleveland Cuyahoga Federal navigation channel over two dredging events in the spring and fall of 2016.

The Corps plan calls for placing of 45,000 cubic yards of sediment dredged from the lower river channel in the USACE confined disposal facility (CDF) 10B and 180,000 cubic yards of dredged sediment from the upper river channel in the designated open lake placement area, CLA-1.

USACE has submitted a request for a Clean Water Act Section 401 Water Quality Certification (WQC) to Ohio EPA for the discharge of dredged sediment at the designated open-lake placement area and for discharge of effluent from CDF 10B.

All documents (including an open letter to Lake Erie Stakeholders, Clean Water Act Section 401 Water Quality Certification application and Clean Water Act Section 404(a) Public Notice) can be found on the Buffalo District’s web page.
