The applicant is proposing to make site improvements to their scrap metal recycling facility and perform maintenance dredging of their barge unloading area. Maintenance dredging would involve the mechanical removal of 30,000 cubic yards of sediment within the approximate 33,320 square foot barge berthing area (dredge template) over a 10-year period and as frequently as once every other year to a design depth of 24 feet below MLLW water with allowance of 2 further feet of over-dredging. The applicant’s stated purpose for dredging is to maintain proper depth for the safe mooring of single 400’ long x 100‘ wide barges. The stated purpose for open water fill is to construct a scrap metal containment area and stormwater system; the stated purpose for “H” pin piles is to repair the existing bulkhead.
