 Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway Federal Navigation Channel Cumberland Dividings Maintenance Dredging Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact

The Corps is proposing to conduct maintenance dredging of shoaled areas within the Cumberland Dividings area of the Atlantic Intracoastal Waterway (AIWW), from river miles 704.5 through 709.5, and has developed placement alternatives that consider previously used upland placement sites as well as beneficial use of dredged material (BUDM) placement areas consistent with Section 125 of the Water Resources Development Act (WRDA) of 2020.

Approximately 316,000 cubic yards of sediment will be removed from the channel utilizing Hydraulic cutterhead dredges.
