Emergency Dock Repair
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
The subject of this Notice of Exemption is floating docks and support piles that are owned and operated by the California Maritime Academy (Cal Maritime) and located in the Cal Maritime boat basin in San Pablo Bay. Wind events in mid-June 2022 resulted in waves that pushed the existing floating docks into the support piles, causing severe damage to the support piles and docks. Without immediate action, the floating docks could become dislodged and cause potential damage to other over-water structures present at Cal Maritime, as well as vessels in Carquinez Strait, should the docks float outside of the Cal Maritime boat basin. Cal Maritime proposes emergency repairs to the damaged piles and two floats beneath a section of existing floating dock to ensure the docks remain stable and in place at their current locations.

Reasons for Exemption
The planned activity involves emergency repairs to floating docks and support piles that were damaged during a discrete wind event and are necessary to maintain service and safety essential to CSU Cal Maritime staff, students, and other users in Carquinez Strait. Repairing the floating docks and support piles is also necessary to prevent potential damage to other over-water structures present in the immediate area as well as vessels in Carquinez Strait should the docks become dislodged. All emergency work is limited to areas that were damaged and in need of immediate repair to avoid a future emergency condition. If the work is not completed quickly, there is a high degree of risk that damage to life and/or property may result.
