Document Description
NOTE: Lead Agency for CEQA: Port of Sacramento; Lead Agency for NEPA: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The proposed project would complete the deepening and widening of the navigation channel to its authorized depth of 35 feet. Deepening of the existing ship channel is anticipated to allow for movement of cargo via larger deeper draft vessels. Widening portions of the channel would increase navigational safety by increasing maneuverability. Alternatives that are anticipated to be evaluated in this SEIS/SEIR include, but are not limited to, the following: A) No action alternative; B) Increased use of lighter aboard ship (LASH); lighters (barges) would be used to transport cargo from ports in shallow water to larger ocean going vessels birthed in deeper water; C) Increased use of intermodal transportation; cargo would be loaded at other terminal facilities and transported by trick or railroad; and D) Project depths shallower than 35 feet.
