Document Description
The United States Navy, through the NAVWPNSTA (Navy), will dredge areas of Anaheim Bay (Turning Basin) by contractor, so that larger ships may turn and berth at a new ammunition loading pier to be centered in the Bay. This 1,100-ft pier will replace the smaller existing pier, meet earthquake code, and be protected by a new breakwater. Fill to waters of the U.S. will consist of the pier pilings, breakwater, associated moorings, a truck turnaround, revetments, and a causeway to the main NAVWPNSTA facility that will block the existing channel to Huntington Harbour. A public navigational channel will be dredged directly between the ocean and Huntington Harbour to replace the existing channel and separate Naval operations from civilian boating. Mitigation measures will replace lost eelgrass beds, rehabilitate tidal zones and dunes, and monitor for wildlife impacts. The project will be conducted in two phases within six years. The Regional Water Quality Control Board, Santa Ana Region (Santa Ana Water Board) received an application for a Clean Water Act Section 401 Water Quality Certification for the Project.
