The Portofino Cove Yacht Homeowners Association has just presented a plan for the maintenance dredging of the marina located in the northwest region of Huntington Harbor in Huntington Beach, Orange County, California.
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District, reported receiving an application from the Portofino Cove Marina for the dredging work.
According to the Corps, the applicant is proposing maintenance dredging of all slips and fairways within the Portofino Cove Marina to the design elevation of -7 feet mean lower low water (MLLW), plus 1 foot of allowable overdepth.
In total, approximately 11,735 cubic yards of material is to be dredged from the proposed project area, which encompasses approximately 86,670 square feet (2.0 acres).
Furthermore, USACE added that sediment removal will be conducted using a mechanical clamshell dredge with the dredged material disposal at the LA-2 Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Site (ODMDS).
The Corps also reported that the comments on the project will be accepted through January 27, 2016.
