The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District, is inviting comments on the Mission Bay Navigational Safety Dredging Project, San Diego, CA.
This cleanup scheme, proposed by the City of San Diego Public Works Department, includes the dredging (clamshell or suction pipeline dredging) of up to 220,850 cubic yards of sediment from Mission Bay.
The project location is situated at multiple locations; within the waters and public beaches of Mission Bay and Mission Bay Park.
The work area includes maintenance dredging and reuse of dredged sediments within approximately 76 acres of bay waters and sand beach, and temporary contractor staging within approximately 2.5 acres of bay waters, and 1.5 acres of vacant uplands at South Shores.
Comment period will end on June 5, 2017.
USACE permits are necessary for any work, including construction and dredging, in the U.S. navigable waterways and their tributaries.
