City of Virginia Beach Plans to Dredge Lake Rudee

The City of Virginia Beach proposes to hydraulically dredge navigable channels in Lake Rudee in order to restore residents’ safe access channels, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Norfolk District.

The applicant proposes to remove approximately 4,576 cubic yards of material (52,061 square feet) at a depth not to exceed -4.5 feet below mean low water (MLW).

Additionally, the city proposes to dredge accumulated sediment in the channels and in the access basins around private owner’s docks, piers and similar facilities.

The channel dredging will be accomplished via hydraulic dredge, with the dredged material being piped and deposited within the Lake Rudee dredge disposal area. This dredge disposal area was created for the purpose of depositing dredged material from projects within the Lake Rudee drainage area.

The proposed project will impact approximately 46,776 square feet (1.07 acres) of subaqueous bottom and no mitigation is proposed for subaqueous bottom.

Public comment period ends February 1, 2016.
