The U.S. Coast Guard is proposing a maintenance dredging project at its Mooring Ballast Point facility in Point Loma, California, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Los Angeles District said in its latest announcement

According to USACE, the project will be conducted in conjunction with the U.S. Navy who are proposing to construct a reef with pile structures from the adjacent completed Navy Fuel Pier project and then dispose of the USCG dredged material at their adjacent Smugglers Cove site at Navy Base Point Loma (NBPL).

USACE is processing a ten year permit for the project’s dredging and disposal work. 

The project location includes the USCG Mooring Ballast Point facility, the near shore areas off of the Silver Strand and Smugglers Cove, north of Ballast Point at NBPL, and/or offshore at the LA-5 Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Site.

The USCG Project dredging footprint (4.1 acres) is located directly south of Pier 5002 at the NBPL Submarine Base in the northwestern part San Diego Bay at the USCG Coast Guard Mooring Ballast Point facility, said USACE.

The work will include dredging of 25,247 cubic yards at the USCG Mooring Ballast Pt. base, with transport of dredged material to the mentioned disposal areas.
