Abstract : The proposed project is to perform maintenance dredging of the Saginaw River and Saginaw Bay Federal Navigation channels. Dredging will be performed by a Government-owned hopper dredge. Approximately 140,000 cubic yards of polluted material dredged from the river, from the Detroit and Mackinac Railroad Bridge to the upper limits of the harbor, is placed on the confined disposal area on Middle Ground Island. The polluted channel section from the D&M R.R. bridge to the river mouth and the section throughout the inner bay will not be dredged until a confined disposal site is constructed to contain this dredged material. The average annual volume of shoaling throughout the project is approximately 840,000 cubic yards. (Author)
