The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Marine Operations Center – Atlantic, proposes new maintenance dredging at their facility. Approximately 85,000 cubic yards of material is proposed to be dredged at the approach and berthing areas along NOAA MOC-A’s shoreline in the Elizabeth River in order to provide safe navigation for current and future vessel support. The material will be dredged either hydraulically and pumped directly into the upper cells of the Craney Island Dredged Material Management Area, or mechanically dredged, placed in scows, barged to Craney Island, and deposited in the Craney Island Rehandling Basin. Comment period ends May 14, 2014.
