Comments Invited on Pier 5000 Dredging Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Los Angeles District is inviting public comments on the Naval Pier 5000 North Outer Berth and Approach Area Dredging and Disposal Project in San Diego County, California.

The scheme, proposed by the Department of the Navy, NAVFAC SW, involves dredging of approximately 110,619 cubic yards of sediment from the northeast side of submarine Pier 5000 in the North Side Outer Berth and Approach Area.

According to the plan, suitable dredged material and disposal would occur either at the Silver Strand Boat Lanes 8 and 9 beneficial use site or the LA-5 Ocean Dredged Material Disposal Site (ODMDS).

The 15.60-acre dredge footprint is currently at a depth of -38 feet mean lower low water (MLLW) or deeper and would be dredged approximately 4 to 7 feet using a barge-mounted clamshell dredge to a depth of -42.5 feet MLLW, plus 2 feet overdredge depth.

The Pier 5000 Dredging Project site is located at Naval Base Point Loma (NBPL) in the city of San Diego, in San Diego County, California. Pier 5000 is located on Point Loma, which comprises the
western shore of the mouth of San Diego Bay just southwest of Naval Air Station North Island.

Comment period will run through September 6, 2019.
