Puerto Rico Ports Authority Introduces Pier 3 Dredging Plan

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District, has received an application from the Puerto Rico Ports Authority for a dredging project, located at berthing areas of Pier 3 in Old San Juan Cruise Port, Puerto Rico. 

The main goal of this maintenance dredging scheme is to provide safety depth to avoid grounding of large cruise ships in this area.

The applicant seeks authorization to perform maintenance dredging of approximately 4,000 cubic yards of sediments in navigable waters of the United States at the docking and berthing spots of Pier 3.

The proposed dredge is located within an area of approximately 959 feet long by 372 feet wide, the announcement stated.

According to USACE,  the proposed dredging depth is -36 feet and -2 feet allowable overdepth and will be achieved using a clamshell dredger.

Under this plan, the dredged material will be transported to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) designated San Juan Harbor Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Site (ODMDS).

The proposed area has been dredged several times in the past. The last maintenance dredging at the berthing areas of Pier 3 was performed in 2012, USACE said.
