Document Description
Maintenance dredging of approximately 31,000 cubic yards of sediment - 13,000 cy will be dredged from Levin Terminal Berth A to a depth of -39 feet Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW) with a two-foot overdredge allowance, and approximately 17,000 cy will be dredged from the Pacific Atlantic Terminal to a depth of -38 feet MLLW with a two-foot overdredge allowance. Because DDT was detected in both berths at elevated concentrations that may pose a threat to aquatic life (10 core samples ranging from 140-462 µg/kg), the material will be dredged with a closed environmental clamshell bucket to prevent excess spillage, and the working dredge will be enclosed by a silt curtain or equivalent method of containment to prevent resuspended sediment from leaving the dredge footprint. The dredged material will be transported via barge to the Montezuma Wetlands Restoration Project where it will be beneficially reused as foundation material in Cell 11 which is fully contained and will ultimately be covered by at least seven feet of wetland surface/cover quality material. The Montezuma site is permitted and monitored under a separate Waste Discharge Requirements order issued by the Water Board.
