Document Description
The Regional Board proposes to adopt two separate Tentative General Order Waste Discharge Requirements (WDRs) to regulate small-scale dredging projects in the Delta. One of the Tentative WDRs covers hydraulic dredging projects that remove less than 100,000 cubic yards of material. The dredge material slurry from hydraulic dredging will be placed in a diked disposal facility on land. The material may be removed after drying for reuse at other sites. The other Tentative WDRs covers clamshell dredging projects removing less than 100,000 cubic yards of material with direct placement on land for beneficial reuse (such as for levee work). The EIR will provide a program-level discussion of dredging projects in the Delta and will provide an analysis from which the environmental review of future projects can be "tiered". The tiering process will enable the Regional Board to streamline the environmental analysis of subsequent projects, focusing on site or project-specific environmental concerns. The exact details of the types of projects to be covered might be modified slightly during CEQA process, but the intent to adopt General Order WDRs to regulate small-scale dredging projects in the Delta will remain the same.
