West Bay Dredging Project up for Comment

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Galveston District, is soliciting public comments regarding the proposed dredging project in West Bay, Brazoria County, Texas.

The applicant County of Brazoria proposes to hydraulically dredge approximately 376,200 cubic yards of sand material from West Bay and the San Luis Pass for the purpose of beach nourishment on the north end of Follets Island.

The dredged material will be pumped via pipe to a 96-acre nearshore beach nourishment area just seaward of the Follets Island Beach.

Any comments received will be considered by the Corps to determine whether to issue, modify, condition or deny a permit for this proposal. To make this decision, comments are used to assess impacts on endangered species, historic properties, water quality, general environmental effects, and the other public interest factors listed above.

The deadline for sending comments is 16 February 2016.
