The Norfolk District has prepared a draft Supplemental Environmental Assessment to assess the potential impacts of the proposed placement of dredged material from the top ten feet of the Pre-Dredge and Access Areas of the Craney Island Eastward Expansion (CIEE) Project at the Norfolk Ocean Disposal Site (NODS). Currently, the top ten feet of material in the Pre-Dredge and Access Areas is to be placed at the Craney Island Dredged Material Management Area (CIDMMA). The purpose of this Proposed Action is to allow for suitable material from the top ten feet of sediment from the Pre-Dredge and Access Areas of the CIEE project to be disposed of at the NODS due to a lack of capacity at the CIDMMA presently and in the near future. The CIEE Project is located in Portsmouth, Virginia and the NODS is located in federal waters. Public comments should be received by the close of business on Sept. 7, 2023.
