USACE to Hold New Haven Harbor Meeting

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, and the New Haven Port Authority will hold a public information meeting for the New Haven Harbor Navigation Improvement Feasibility Study and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 24th 2017, at the Hall of Records in New Haven, Connecticut.

In response to a resolution of the Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works dated July 31, 2007, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District is conducting a feasibility study and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) to examine navigation-improvements to the existing New Haven Harbor Federal Navigation Project.

Deeper and wider navigation features (main channel, maneuvering area, and turning basin) are needed to increase the navigation efficiency and safety of New Haven Harbor.

According to the Corps, the feasibility study will identify, evaluate, and recommend to decision makers an appropriate, coordinated and workable solution to the navigation inefficiencies at the harbor.

Alternatives will include analyzing various incremental channel depths and widths based upon need, as well as alternative dredging methodologies.

In addition, the study will evaluate various dredged material disposal alternatives such as beneficial use (e.g., marsh creation, beach nourishment, historic disposal mound capping, nearshore placement), open water placement, and upland placement.
