Permit(s) Applied for:

Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Several Counties in this Region


Project Description:

Maintenance dredging of approximately 450,000 cubic yards of sediment from the Federal navigation channels in the Buffalo River and Ship Canal. The dredging would occur to a depth of 23.5 feet below Low Water Datum (LWD) for Lake Erie and may include an additional six inches of "overdepth" to ensure that the specified depths are achieved. A combined dredging depth of 24 feet below LWD in these Federal channels is allowed under U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' (USACE) authorities. The dredged material consists primarily of silts and clay, with some sands. The sediments have been thoroughly tested and evaluated, and are comparable to or somewhat more contaminated than those routinely maintenance dredged from Buffalo Harbor Federal navigation channels. The dredged material will be placed into the existing USACE confined disposal facility (CDF) No. 4 located in the Outer Buffalo Harbor adjacent to the South Entrance Channel.
