USACE to Host Marina del Rey Meeting
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host a meeting from 6 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, March 29, to accept public comment on a permit application to construct a new dock system and 345-slip dry dock storage facility in association with the MDR Basin H Boat Central-Dry Boat Storage Project.
The meeting will take place at the Burton W. Chace Park Meeting Room in Marina del Rey.
The proposed project would install a new dock system supported by 22 concrete 48-inch diameter support piles impacting approximately 139 square feet of soft-bottom from the piles only.
In addition a new overwater dry-stack structure boat cueing system would be installed. The structures extend 97 feet seaward on the westerly side and 45 feet seaward on the easterly side.
Construction would include 755 linear feet of queuing docks with 32 guide piles (16 inch in diameter) for a total footprint of 76 square feet. Pile installation would not result in a discharge of fill material.
Total new overwater coverage would be approximately 11,600 square feet (0.26 acre) waters of the United States and would not impact any eelgrass because none was found nor is expected on-site.
