USACE Preparing Jasper Ocean Terminal EIS

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Charleston District (SAC) is working on an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) that will assess the potential social, economic and environmental effects associated with the construction and operation of the proposed Jasper Ocean Terminal (JOT).

The JOT Joint Venture, a partnership between the Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) and the South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA), has proposed to develop a state-of-the-art marine container terminal on the northern bank of the Savannah River in Jasper County, South Carolina.

JOT EIS will assess the potential effects of the proposed new terminal and a range of reasonable project alternatives on waters of the United States. Information included in the EIS will serve as the basis for the Corps’ evaluation of the proposed marine container terminal and the associated road, rail, and navigation improvements.

Navigation improvements associated with the proposed JOT include new and maintenance dredging of berths, an access channel, a turning basin to provide vessel access to the terminal, shoreline stabilization works, bulkhead and wharf construction adjacent to the existing Savannah Harbor federal navigation channel.
