Document Description
The Proposed Action is to maintain the authorized navigation approach depth for MOTCO Wharves 2, 3, 4, Barge Pier, and the proposed boat ramp. Sediment accumulation around the wharves has resulted in existing depths that are above the authorized depths, limiting ingress and egress at the wharves, and impacting safety of port operations. Maintenance dredging is needed to continue MOTCO’s mission requirements. MOTCO specific project objectives are to: • Provide safe, reliable, and efficient navigation to Wharves 2, 3, 4, Barge Pier, and the proposed boat ramp located in Suisun Bay in a feasible manner. This objective is considered the underlying, fundamental purpose of the proposed project. • Conduct dredging and materials placement in a manner that adequately protects the environment through compliance with existing federal and state regulations. • Conduct dredging using methods that protect Federally-listed species. Maintenance dredging could occur on a biennial basis between August 1 and November 30 dependent on the volume of recently shoaled material. Implementation would start during the appropriate dredging window in the calendar year 2022 identified in the NMFS-USFWS BOs and would extend through calendar year 2031. All dredged material will be placed in accordance with the LTMS for the placement of Dredged Material in the San Francisco Bay/Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Estuary, California.
