Meetings on Houston Ship Channel Improvement in May

The USACE, Galveston District, will host two public scoping meetings on May 17 and 19, 2016, to inform the public about the proposed study to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the Houston Ship Channel 45-Foot Expansion Channel Improvement Project (HSC ECIP). 

“The purpose of the study is to examine the feasibility of improving navigation on the channel,” said Project Manager Andrea Catanzaro, USACE Galveston District.

“This study will identify and evaluate a combination of modifications to the HSC to improve the efficiency and safety of the HSC system.”

According to Catanzaro, staff will work to gather public feedback about significant issues and impacts that need to be addressed in the analysis of environmental impacts and to help define the scope of the study.

All public comments received will be considered in the draft FS/EIS pursuant to NEPA and USACE regulations.

Comments will also be used to help determine the overall public interest of the proposed project.

The open-house meetings are scheduled as follows:

  • 5:30-8 p.m. at Houston Community College–Northeast Campus, Houston, TX;
  • 5:30-8p.m. Sylvan Beach Pavilion, La Porte, TX.
