NOTICE OF APPLICATION

SUBSTANTIAL SHORELINE DEVELOPMENT

CONDITIONAL USE

Case No (s): P1900716

Description of Proposal: The Port of Willapa Harbor is requesting a Shoreline Management Substantial Development Conditional Use Permit in order to dredge approximately 46,000 cubic yards of sediment from the Bay Center Marina and Federal Entrance Channel between Channel Station 0+00 and 17+00 and the Bay Center Mariculture Dock area located approximately 2,300 feet south of the marina channel on the westerly bank of the Palix River as a part of ongoing maintenance. The dredging will occur using a 10” hydraulic suction dredge owned and operated by the Port of Willapa Harbor, with dredge spoils pumped via a pipeline and discharged to the flow lane immediately to the east of the marina. A Sediment Transport and Disposal Analysis has determined that existing currents in the flow lane at this location will disperse the fine grain sediments into the littoral system with no deposition in the vicinity of the discharge.
