The applicant, Center Point Terminal Newark, LP, has requested Department of the Army authorization to perform dredging with ten-year maintenance with disposal of the dredged material at an upland disposal facility. The project is located at the Navigation Berthing Area, Center Point Terminal, 678 Doremus Ave., City of Newark, Essex County, New Jersey.
Dredging is proposed in an approximate 250-foot-wide by 900-foot-long berthing area. The historic depth has been maintained at -21.0 Mean Low Water (MLW) for previous dredging events (most recently in 2013 – USACE Permit # 2008-00314-M3). The approximate dredge volume at the navigation berthing area is 5000 cubic yards.
The dredged material will be transported to a qualified dewatering and treatment facility, where stabilization will occur (usually mixing with Portland cement) with final placement at a State approved site.
