Dredged Material Management Plan (DMMP) – Port of New York & New Jersey

New York District (NYD) is responsible for maintaining the Federal navigation channels within the Port of New York and New Jersey. Maintenance of these channels via periodic dredging to authorized dimensions is critical to safeguarding commercial and recreational navigation within the port. NYD is committed to environmentally and economically sound management of maintenance dredging material as defined by applicable laws, regulations, and policies.

A Dredged Material Management Plan (DMMP) is a long-term strategic plan for the placement of material to be dredged from Federal, State and local [new and existing] channels. A DMMP ensures that there is adequate placement capacity to properly manage dredged material in an environmentally and economically acceptable manner. The DMMP Implementation Report (IR) for the Port of New York and New Jersey was published in 1999. Several updates have since been made to this DMMP, with the most recent update issued in 2008. In 2022, the NYD was allocated funding to develop a subsequent Interim DMMP Update.

Interim DMMP Update (2025-2029) – Port of New York & New Jersey

Given the prevailing uncertainty in the remaining capacity of the Historic Area Remediation Site (HARS) and the anticipated construction of the Harbor Deepening Channel Improvements (HDCI) project (an ongoing, separate effort), the NYD is developing an Interim DMMP Update to ensure adequate near-term placement capacity exists for current and anticipated near-term dredged material placement needs (2025-2029). A separate DMMP is expected to be prepared for the HDCI project prior to construction.  In addition to evaluating the near-term placement capacity, this Interim DMMP Update will re-evaluate the Federal Standard (modified pursuant to Section 125 of WRDA 2020; 33 U.S.C. § 2326g) and identify additional beneficial use opportunities for dredged material.

Status – As of May 31, 2024

Public outreach has been ongoing for the Interim DMMP Update. We have held an Industry Outreach Event on May 16th, 2024, and two Public Information Sessions on May 20th, 2024. Additional Public Information Sessions have been scheduled for June 20th, 2024.

An interagency meeting is being held on June 3, 2024, to start the NEPA- Environmental Coordination process.

The project team is continuing to review the feedback received from our outreach efforts and evaluating dredged material placement demand and capacity in the Port of New York and New Jersey.
