The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Los Angeles District, is inviting comments on a draft Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposed South San Diego Harbor dredging project in San Diego, California.

USACE, as part of its Operations and Maintenance Program, is proposing to perform maintenance dredging in South San Diego Harbor Federal Channel to re-establish authorized channel depths.

The project is expected to take place from November 2019 through March 2020.

According to USACE, long shore transport of sand from the ocean has shoaled the sides and bed of the approach/entrance channel and other areas of the Federal Channel have developed shoals due to propeller wash from passing ships and sediment deposition from Sweetwater Channel.

The proposed project will:

  • restore the channel that is subject to continual shoaling to design depths;
  • assure the continued navigation for marine traffic within the harbor;
  • provide beach nourishment material for beaches severely eroded by littoral processes.

The deadline for submitting the comments is August 2, 2019.
