The purpose of the project is barge dock maintenance dredging (Dock 3). The permittee will perform maintenance dredging activities on the Mississippi River. Approximately 27,000 cubic yards of material will be mechanically removed from 50 feet long by 20 feet wide or 0.02 acre dredging area, to a dredging water depth of 15 feet at flat pool. The material will be dewatered in an upland site, and then placed in large containers and transported by truck to the Hickory Ridge Landfill and disposed of at the landfill. There will be no return water going back into the river. Maintenance dredging will occur on an as needed basis, typically every five years.
