Navigation Channel for Industrial Seaport
Document Description
The project site includes the existing Federal navigation channel and turning basins at RCH, extending from the mouth of Redwood Creek to deep water in the San Francisco Bay, as well as the channel at San Bruno Shoal in San Francisco Bay. Both channels are authorized to a depth of -30 feet Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW). It is the only deep-water port in South San Francisco Bay and was completed to its present-day authorized depth in 1965. The Port of Redwood City is the local sponsor the navigation channel and shares the cost of the feasibility study on a 50/50 basis with the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The port maintains three ship berth facilities at a depth of -34 feet MLLW and a small facility to unload cement and aggregates via barge. Maritime activities include the export of recycled metal and the import of dry bulk building materials such as cement, bauxite, gypsum and construction aggregates.
