SAN FRANCISCO BAY LONG TERM MANAGEMENT STRATEGY
OPERATIONS AND MAINTENANCE

PROJECT LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION

The project area includes San Francisco, San Pablo, and Suisun Bays in California. The goals for the Long Term Management Strategy (LTMS) are to maintain in an economically and environmentally sound manner navigation channels in San Francisco Bay; conduct dredged material disposal in the most environmentally sound manner; maximize the use of dredged material as a resource; and maintain the cooperative permitting framework for dredging/disposal. All management activities are designed to accomplish these goals.

FY 19 AND FY 20 ACCOMPLISHMENTS (based on the availability of funds)

  • Funds are being used for Inter-agency coordination and limited funding of the Dredged Material Management Office (DMMO) which coordinates, dredged material management for all in-bay dredging, and other annual activities required to manage the LTMS program.
  • Funding will be used for U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) staff labor for the DMMO and other annual activities required to manage the LTMS program.

ISSUES AND OTHER INFORMATION

  • Dredging and disposal costs continue to rise with decreased disposal site capacity coupled with increased pressure by Regulatory Agencies to beneficially reuse sediment.
  • As part of Regional Sediment Management activities, the strategic in-bay placement of sediment pilot study is a key component in the identification and development of placement alternatives and driver in O&M cost reduction.
  • The DMMO is a critical component of the San Francisco Bay LTMS for management of unconfined aquatic placement and beneficial use of dredged material.  USACE dredging projects are allowed continued use of cost-effective aquatic placement in part due to the oversight and management of aquatic disposal provided by the DMMO.
