Naval Facilities Engineering Command Southwest (NAVFAC SW) is proposing a maintenance dredging project at Naval Base Point Loma (NBPL) in San Diego, California.

The proposed project includes dredging and removal of approximately 16,485 cubic yards of material (including a 2-foot overdredge allowance) within the 1.85-acre proposed dredge area in association with Navy ARCO Drydock Sump Project.

“The proposed dredge design depth is -60.0 feet mean lower low water (MLLW) for the ADD sump. Samples of the proposed dredged materials were collected and tested according to protocols for unconfined aquatic disposal determination for potential placement at the LA-5 Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Site (ODMDS) or a beneficial use site,” said the Los Angeles District of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in its announcement.

The decision whether to issue a permit will be based on an evaluation of the probable impact including cumulative impacts of the proposed activity on the public interest. That decision will reflect the national concern for both protection and utilization of important resources, said USACE.

The deadline for submitting the comments for the Naval Base Point Loma dredging plan is July 27, 2019.
