Florida State Line Starts Scoping in AIWW Dredging Project

The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers Savannah District intends to prepare a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) to analyze the impacts of the maintenance dredging of this portion of the AIWW, including disposal of dredged materials. Dredging helps keep the waterways navigable by removing excess debris and sediment from the floor of the water. 

The DEIS will analyze the impact that dredging has had on the area since 1976, providing background so that researchers can examine how continued dredging may cause an impact over the course of the next 20 years. The DEIS will use this information to evaluate alternative sediment and debris disposal options. NMMA encourages you to submit questions or comments by May 21. Submit comments to Mr. Charles W. Seyle, US Army Corps of Engineers, Savannah District, ATTN: PD, Post Office Box 889, Savannah, GA 31402 or email: CESAS-PD.SAS@usace.army.mil.
