The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Savannah District, has prepared this Final Supplemental Environmental Assessment and FONSI to evaluate the potential impacts of modifying the previously-approved SHEP McCoys Cut Mitigation Flow Re-routing Plan.  The modifications consist of additional dredging in Middle River to provide the flows designed in the 2012 FEIS, and to beneficially use the dredged sediments to create approximately nine acres of intertidal wetlands. The remaining balance of dredged sediment will be placed either in existing upland DMCAs or in a portion of the Sediment Basin, which is another flow re-routing feature of SHEP. This SEA supplements the SHEP Final Environmental Impact Statement and signed Record of Decision.

This is a closeout report for SHEP's land acquisition environmental mitigation requirement. The feature involved the Georgia Department of Transportation acquiring the 2,080-acre property on Abercorn Island and transferring the to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The transfer of the Abercorn Island tract secures preservation of a total of 2,256 acres of freshwater wetlands – the most dynamic and beneficial kind of wetland in the coastal region. The two tracts slightly exceed SHEP’s requirement to acquire and preserve 2,245 acres of wetlands.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Savannah District has completed its monitoring of the Lower Savannah River Basin Environmental Restoration Project. This final closeout out report documents the results of that monitoring effort. The restoration project was intended to help restore flows into Bear Creek, which flows into Abercorn Creek. The project was intended to rehydrate about 4,500 acres of bottomland hardwoods in the Savannah National Wildlife Refuge, improve overall water quality in Bear Creek, and decrease chloride levels at the City of Savannah’s water intake. Once the project was constructed, five years of post-construction monitoring were performed to document the effectiveness of the project. Monitoring efforts began in 2004 and ended in 2016.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Savannah District, has prepared this final report of the Brunswick Harbor Deepening Project mitigation effort. The mitigation requirements for the Brunswick Harbor Deepening Project were based on two different types of environmental impacts: Essential Fish Habitat (EFH) and wetlands. The harbor deepening was completed in late August 2008. Once the mitigation actions at Andrew’s Island were completed, Savannah District monitored the wetland restoration sites for five years to ensure that the restoration was performing as required. Monitoring was performed between 2011 and 2016 and tracked wetland restoration progress by measuring the percent of vegetation coverage.

The report summarizes the results of bird surveys conducted in the Savannah Harbor Dredged Material Disposal Areas. The surveys began in 1988 and were conducted on a monthly basis from 1994 to 2012. The majority of these surveys were conducted by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Savannah District Biologist J. Stevan (Steve) Calver. The resulting dataset represents over 20 years of information on the relative abundance and species diversity of seasonal bird communities using habitats created by dredged material deposition through USACE maintenance dredging in the Savannah Harbor. Such long-term datasets are relatively rare in ecological studies and therefore provides important documentation on the beneficial role of dredged material as a substrate for avian habitat, plus basic population and habitat use observations on dozens of important and declining bird species, including species federally listed as threatened or endangered, or otherwise sensitive and in need of conservation.

Savannah District is evaluating potential changes to the Drought Plan for the Corps' reservoir projects on the Savannah River under the Savannah River Basin Comprehensive Study. This document shows the present schedule for that study. The study is being performed as a cooperative effort between the Corps, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, and The Nature Conservancy.

The purpose of the Satilla Watershed Reconnaissance Study is to determine if there is a Federal interest and a willing and able cost-sharing sponsor to undertake a Feasibility Study.  Problems within the watershed primarily focused on water resources that fit under the Corps of Engineer's mission areas of flood risk management and ecosystem restoration will be identified and potential solutions will be examined using existing and readily available data and information.

Northwest Georgia Regional Commission Development of Regional Impact Report for Paulding County Richland Creek Reservoir.

The Richland Creek Reservoir proposed project appears to be consistent within the Northwest Georgia Regional Commission Regionally Important Resource Plan (January 19, 2012). The proposed project appears to be consistent with the policies, programs and projects contained in the Northwest Georgia Regional Commission Regional Comprehensive Plan (January 16, 2014.)

Paulding County’s Richland Creek Reservoir Project is being planned to fulfill the long-term water supply needs of the County through the year 2060. Paulding County currently owns and operates the public water system infrastructure within the County; however, the County purchases all of its water supply from Cobb County-Marietta Water Authority (CCMWA) through a long-term Intergovernmental Agreement. The new reservoir will supplement the existing water supply in order to fulfill the projected 50-year need of 53.2 million gallons per day (MGD). Richland Creek Reservoir is estimated to provide 35 MGD of the total water supply need. Richland Creek Reservoir will be a pumped storage reservoir located in northern Paulding County on the upper reaches of Richland Creek. Its primary water source will be pumped from the Etowah River at a site located four miles to the north in Bartow County as illustrated on the attached map. The project includes all phases needed to deliver water from river to tap.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Savannah District completed its actions to evaluate and update a new operating agreement with Duke Energy. The new operating agreement would equalize the percent of remaining usable storage capacity at Duke Energy’s Jocassee and Keowee Lakes during droughts with the remaining usable storage at the Corps of Engineers’ Hartwell, Richard B. Russell, and J. Strom Thurmond Reservoirs.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Savannah District released a final Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for the Tybee Island Shore Protection Project, Georgia, 2015 Renourishment.

This authorized 3.5 mile-long project was initially constructed in 1974 with a 50-year project life and periodic renourishments to occur every 7 years. The beach was last renourished in 2008 and is scheduled to be renourished again in 2015. In 2015, there will be 9 years left in the project life (i.e. Federal participation). The Savannah District, with the non-Federal sponsor’s concurrence, selected to perform the 2015 periodic renourishment for the remaining 9 years of the 50-year project life.

The renourishment volume to be placed includes the volume needed to restore the project plus an additional 312,000 cubic yards to account for potential erosion through 2024. The beach template will be slightly modified to include placement of the additional material by extending the berm up to the north terminal groin of the template. This area has been nourished during previous renourishment cycles, but not during the 2008 renourishment. The final quantity and placement of template fill will be determined by surveys conducted immediately prior to construction.

In addition, the berm will be extended seaward up to 50 feet beyond the previously constructed template to account for erosion during the additional 2 years of advance nourishment for a 9 year cycle. The same borrow area that was used for the 2008 renourishment, Borrow Area 4, will be used for this final renourishment. Borrow material will be taken from previously undisturbed areas within Area 4. The proposed project is scheduled to occur between 1 November 2015 and 30 April 2016.

The Savannah District sought, obtained, and used funds from the American Resource and Recovery Act (ARRA) to answer some long-standing environmental and water resource questions on the Savannah River. The District contracted with regional organizations to perform the work. The reports of those organizations can be viewed below:

Evaluation of Shortnose Sturgeon Spawning Habitat in the Savannah River. This investigation was conducted by the firm Dial Cordy and Associates. The study consisted of (1) Measuring and documenting the river depths, (2) Characterizing and quantifying the bottom substrate, (3) Measuring and characterizing flow velocities, (4) Using that information to assess the suitability of the bottom substrates as spawning habitats for Shortnose sturgeon, and (5) Characterizing the bottom substrate at the Augusta Shoals. This work is the first quantitative assessment of Shortnose sturgeon spawning habitat in the Savannah River in many years and it used published NOAA guidance that define acceptable spawning habitat. VIEW REPORT


Evaluation of Sediment Dynamics at Gravel Bars Used for Spawning in the Savannah River
. This investigation was conducted by the University of Georgia, Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources. The study was identified changes in sedimentation of gravel bars over the course of a year, and short term changes that occur in response to specific flow events. The Corps sought this information to assess the likely effectiveness of using a pulsed release prior to the fish spawning season to clean the gravel bars to expand the quantity of suitable spawning habitat. The investigation also provided information on the likely duration of effect of a cleaned spawning site. VIEW REPORT


Evaluation of Preferential Fish Use of Cleaned Gravel Bars in the Savannah River
. This investigation was conducted by the South Carolina Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Research Unit. This investigation assessed the feasibility of cleaning two gravel bars located downstream of the Corps dams and the preferential use of the cleaned areas for fish spawning. This information would be used to assess the technical feasibility of cleaning gravel bars, the effectiveness of that procedure to enhance the value of a spawning site for fish, and the costs of such an operation on a larger scale. VIEW REPORT 

 

 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Savannah District completed a final Environmental Assessment for a project to restore the Savannah Harbor dredged material containment area (DMCA) 1N (Onslow Island). In partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the project will allow the Corps to store dredged material in the site while also creating wildlife habitat. The area was used for dredge disposal from the mid 1970's until the late 1990's but has since become overgrown with vegetation, including invasive species. The Environmental Assessment evaluates the impacts and benefits of establishing and maintaining wildlife habitats in this area, for which the Corps could receive mitigation credits in the same manner as the DMCA's in South Carolina.

Previous studies concluded that construction of the SHEP would increase salinity and chloride concentrations in the Savannah River Estuary, including Abercorn Creek. To compensate for potential impacts to the City of Savannah’s Industrial and Domestic Water Treatment Plant in Port Wentworth, Ga., from increases in salinity at their raw water intake in Abercorn Creek, a Raw Water Storage
Impoundment was included as part of the SHEP.

Detailed design studies performed by Savannah District after completion of the SHEP EIS indicate that modifications are needed to the location and design of the impoundment. A parcel near Interstate Highway 95 and the City of Savannah’s raw water pipeline was identified as the best location.

The Proposed Action (Alternative 2) consists of retaining the major components of Alternative 1 and modifying the discharge of Levels 2 and 3. For Level 2 of this Alternative, if the current 28- day Broad River percentile inflow is greater than the 10th percentile flow, then the prescribed J. Strom Thurmond (JST) Dam release would be 4000 cfs from February through October. For Level 2, if the current 28-day Broad River percentile inflow is less than or equal to the 10th percentile flow, then the prescribed JST release would be 3800 cfs from February through October. The November to January discharge for Level 2 would be 3600 cfs (February extension of 3600 cfs could be implemented with NOAA Fisheries pre-approval). The Level 3 JST release for February through October would be 3800 cfs and the target for November through January discharge would also be reduced to 3100 cfs (February extension of 3100 cfs could be implemented with NOAA Fisheries pre-approval). If requested by either the State of Georgia or South Carolina, the Corps would restore the Thurmond discharge up to 3800 cfs daily average for the 3100 cfs release in Level 3. For Levels 1-3, the Hartwell discharge would be reduced as appropriate to maintain balanced pools.

FINDINGS: The proposed action to modify the Drought Contingency Plan for the Savannah River Basin would result in no significant environmental impacts and is the alternative that represents sound natural resource management practices and environmental standards.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Savannah District, has completed its Environmental Assessment (EA) of a proposed increased development of Wildwood Park on the J. Strom Thurmond Lake, in Columbia County, Georgia. Columbia County presently operates the park and has requested the increased development. Savannah District approved the increased development and has updated the Thurmond Lake Master Plan to accommodate the increased development. The Corps will work with Columbia County and amend the County's lease to operate the Park with this additional development.

This report documents the regional economic impacts of changing lake levels and drought conditions on the six county region bordering Lake Hartwell. Lake Hartwell is a United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) impoundment of the Savannah River constructed between 1955 and 1963 as a part of a flood control, navigation and hydropower project on the borders of South Carolina and Georgia. In addition to the original reasons for its creation, the lake is widely used today for tourism and recreation and is a key element in regional water quality, water supply, and fish and wildlife management efforts.

As the economic role of Lake Hartwell has evolved, it has become necessary to characterize the relationship between the lake and general economic activity in the surrounding region. Two major droughts between 1998 and 2008 focused concerns on lake level management and the effect of prolonged low water levels on the region. An earlier study and anecdotal evidence from project stakeholders suggested that low lake levels were causing a large negative impact on the local economy, especially in counties adjacent to the lake.

After reviewing public and agency comments received in the spring of 2011, the Savannah District has completed an Environmental Assessment (EA) and Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for operations during Level 4 drought conditions on the Savannah River. Level 4 is the most severe of drought conditions under the Savannah District's Water Management Plan.

The Savannah River basin has never reached Level 4 conditions since the construction of the first major hydropower dam on the Savannah River in 1954. The Corps’ drought management plan was designed to prevent the three-reservoir system from ever reaching level 4. This EA clarifies actions to be taken in the unlikely event that drought conditions reach this unprecedented level.

The EA concluded that the daily average releases from the Thurmond Dam will be adjusted from 3,600 cfs to 3,100 cfs from Nov. 1 through the month of January, in the event that Level 4 is ever reached. The new Level 4 operations will: 

  • Extend the period over which the pools would be depleted;
  • Extend the period over which the minimal environmental flows are available downstream; and
  • Reduce recovery time for all three reservoirs
