SPL-2017-00001-ELJ Santa Ana River Marsh

Published Feb. 16, 2017
Expiration date: 3/3/2017

TO INTERESTED PARTIES:
The Los Angeles District Corps of Engineers (Corps) requests your review and comment on the Draft Supplemental Environmental Assessment (SEA) for the Santa Ana River Marsh Sediment Removal Project, Newport Beach, Orange County, California.  The Corps proposes to remove approximately 10,000 cubic yards of clean, sandy sediment from approximately 2.8 acres adjacent to the downstream tide gate in the Marsh, and place the material on the adjacent California least tern island. The proposed sediment removal project, supplemental to the 2013 dredging, would serve the following purposes: (1) remove sediment blocking the downstream tide gate; (2) beneficially reuse the sediment to improve CA least tern nesting habitat on the tern island; and (3) increase tidal range and improve circulation of the tidal flow throughout the marsh, which will result in improved water quality and overall habitat quality for wildlife.
The proposed sediment removal is scheduled to occur before April 15, 2017.

Please respond with comments on the Draft SEA by Friday March 3, 2017.
