CHARACTER OF WORK: A time extension has been requested for work previously authorized which includes dredging for the expansion of an existing dock and work to construct a methanol manufacturing facility and piperack and the demolition and removal of existing dock structures. The footprint of the proposed manufacturing facility has been oriented within a non-wetland area. Dredging, demolition, and removal of existing dock structures shall be conducted by barge mounted equipment. Work conducted within the batture shall be temporary and construction equipment will be operated on mats. No excavation or fill is required within the batture. Approximately 20.87 acres of non-vegetated waterbottoms will be directly impacted and approximately 0.44 acres of wetlands shall be temporarily impacted by the proposed activity. The applicant maintains that no permanent impacts to jurisdictional wetlands are anticipated; therefore, no compensatory mitigation has been proposed at this time.
