Project Activities

Phase 2 Year 4 dredging operations began on May 7, 2014. During the fourth year of Phase 2, dredging is anticipated to occur in Certification Unit (CU) 60, CUs 61-66 (land-locked section), CUs 80-82, a portion of CU 83, CUs 85-98, and a portion of CU 99 (see Phase1 and 2 Certification Units Maps, to the right). Tables 1 and 2 below are updated daily and indicate where project activities are occurring. The tables also indicate where monitoring and maintenance is occurring. Non-CU specific activities (general river operations, including boats transporting workers to dredges and oversight boats) occur regularly during the dredging season.  View daily activities on the Project Activities Interactive Map.

Status / Activity Description
Dredging / Backfilling Complete CUs where dredging and backfilling/capping activities have been completed but habitat reconstruction has not occurred (where necessary).
Pre-dredging Operations CUs where activities to prepare for dredging are occurring, such as surveys and shoreline vegetation pruning.
Ongoing Dredging Operations CUs where dredging and/or backfilling/capping is occurring.
Habitat Reconstruction CUs where habitat reconstruction is occurring (where necessary).
No Activity CUs where dredging has not begun but is expected to occur in the current season.
Maintenance Activities Day-to-day activities that occur year round at the Facility when no dredged sediment is onsite.
Maintenance and Facility Improvements When upgrades are being made to the Facility and day-to-day activities are occurring at the Facility and no dredged sediment is onsite.
Processing Activities Processing of dredged sediment, including unloading barges, sorting and dewatering sediment, and loading rail cars for sediment disposal.
