STUDY AREA LOCATION, DESCRIPTION, AND PURPOSE
The San Francisco Bay to Stockton Navigation Improvement Project was originally authorized by Congress in the Rivers and Harbors (R&H) Act of 1965. The authorization allowed for -45 foot channel depths, but the channels were only constructed to -35 feet mean lower low water (MLLW). This General Reevaluation Report (GRR) is an interim response to the study authority.
The GRR was originally scoped for a 78-mile long navigation project to include the John F. Baldwin and Stockton Deepwater Ship channels, but was re-scoped in 2016 to focus only on improvements between San Francisco Bay and Avon. The resultant study area is a 13.2 mile length of navigation channel which spans from Central San Francisco Bay to Avon (just east of the Benicia-Martinez Bridge) and includes the Pinole Shoal Channel and the Bulls Head Reach portion of the Suisun Bay Channel.
The primary study purpose is to determine the Federal interest in navigation improvements to reduce transportation costs and increase deep draft navigation efficiency for the shipment of commodities to and from all facilities within the study area beginning in 2020.
