ISSUES AND OTHER INFORMATION

  • This is a non-annual project with a dredging cycle of every two years.  Dredging is scheduled for FY21.
  • The CA State Coastal Conservancy has contributed approximately $5M to fund the additional cost of beneficial reuse.  We will use this funding to redirect a portion of the dredged material from in-bay disposal to beneficial reuse this summer.
  • The Port of RWC continues to support reducing the dredging cycle frequency from every two years to annually.  The PDT is evaluating the feasibility of this recommendation.
