ISSUES AND OTHER INFORMATION

  • The Port of Richmond is the Non-Federal Sponsor (NFS).
  • This project did not receive funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA), Title IV, Pub. L. No. 111-5, 123 Stat. 115, Feb. 17, 2009.
  • The Santa Fe Channel is no longer maintained due to unsuitable material, stemming from an upstream EPA Super Fund site.
  • The outer harbor is historically dredged annually with the Government dredge Essayons.  Due to regulatory restrictions permitting only one project utilizing a hopper dredge per year in SF Bay, Richmond outer harbor and San Pablo Bay Pinole Shoal are now on an alternating bi-annual cycle.  Richmond outer harbor was last dredged in 2018, and is planned for 2020
