FY 21 ACCOMPLISHMENTS 

  • Completed dredging to project depth and placed all suitable beneficial reuse material at an upland beneficial reuse site.

FY 22 ACCOMPLISHMENTS 

  • Complete an analysis of advanced maintenance alternatives. Plan to perform condition surveys, Environmental coordination, and develop plans and specifications for the next dredge episode.

ISSUES AND OTHER INFORMATION

  • This is a non-annual project with a dredging cycle of every two years.  Dredging is scheduled for FY23.
  • The CA State Coastal Conservancy has contributed approximately $5M to fund the additional cost of beneficial reuse.  We used roughly half in FY21 and will use the rest of the funding to redirect a portion of the dredged material from in-Bay placement to beneficial reuse for the next episode summer.
  • ‚ÄčThe 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.
