PROJECT LOCATION AND DESCRIPTION

The project consists of deep-draft navigation channels that extend from the San Francisco Bay to the Port of Stockton through San Francisco, Marin, Contra Costa, Solano, Sacramento, and San Joaquin Counties. The Corps is assessing the feasibility of deepening the existing 35-foot channel to realize significant transportation cost savings. The channel is currently authorized to 45-feet west of Pittsburgh. Deepening east of Pittsburgh would require new authorization.

ISSUES AND OTHER INFORMATION

  • The Port of Stockton is the Non-Federal Sponsor (NFS), and Contra Costa County and the Western States Petroleum Agency are project partners.
  • Project area is located in the environmentally sensitive and dynamic San Francisco Bay and San Francisco Bay and Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, which includes unique ecological zone where saltwater transitions into the freshwater Delta. Project area serves as habitat for several federally listed endangered or threatened species. The Delta serves as a major freshwater source for agriculture and municipal users, including water exports to the Central Valley and Southern California.
  • Consistent with USACE SMART Planning and 3x3x3 objectives, the current study phase will focus on the reach west of Avon, which serves several oil refineries. A subsequent study phase would address the reach east of Avon, which serves waterfront industry in North Contra Costa County and the Port of Stockton.
  • In 2017 an exemption request was granted and due to national resource constraints the study was transferred to the Wilmington District of the Corps to complete.
  • While the CEQA lead agency is being sorted out, the draft document will be released as a planning document with NEPA analysis only.
