CHARACTER OF WORK: The applicant has requested permit reissuance to perform maintenance dredging of accumulated sediments at the existing barge and ship dock “B”.  Multiple permit authorizations and time extensions have been granted for modifications and dredging at the dock since September 30, 1996.  The most recent permit authorization was granted on March 24, 2016, to dredge an existing dock and barge slip to remove accumulated sediments and place the dredged material in approved disposal areas, all as necessary to maintain navigation depths to support mooring of vessels at "B" Dock of the CITGO Lake Charles Refinery Complex.  This permit expired on March 31, 2021, and the applicant has requested permit reissuance to continue to maintain vessel access to the dock.  Dredged spoil material will be placed at 2 existing disposal areas, as shown on the permit drawings.  Approximately 2.4 acres of Waters of the US will be temporarily impacted by the project, and no permanent wetland impacts are proposed in disposal areas.
