The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, is seeking public comments on plans to unload 500,000 cubic yards of dredged material from Corps Island, near river mile 799 of the Upper Mississippi River. 

The project would involve unloading dredged material from Corps Island, a temporary placement site within the Corps’ 9-Foot Navigation Channel Maintenance Management Plan.

According to USACE, the unload would ensure continued utilization of the Upper Mississippi River 9-Foot Navigation Channel.

“The process by which dredged material would be removed from Corps Island, and where it would be placed or used, would be decided by the awarded contractor,” USACE said in their release.

This project requires a review of environmental effects under the National Environmental Policy Act.

A copy of the draft Environmental Assessment with a finding of no significant impact was coordinated with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and state resource agencies prior to posting of the public notice, said USACE.

The public review and comment period on the draft Environmental Assessment ends May 7.
