  • SAC-2015-01238 Jasper County Ocean Terminal (NIB)

    Expiration date: 11/21/2016

    U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Charleston District Public Notice PROJECT NAME: Jasper Ocean Terminal COUNTY: Jasper County WATERWAY & LOCATION: Savannah River. The proposed project is located approximately 5 miles east of U.S. Highway 17 on the northern bank of the Savannah River in Jasper County, South Carolina (Latitude 32.08893 N, Longitude -80.97499 W). PROPOSED WORK: The Jasper Ocean Terminal (JOT) Joint Venture, a partnership between the Georgia Ports Authority (GPA) and the South Carolina Ports Authority (SCPA), has submitted a proposal to construct a state-of-the-art marine container terminal in Jasper County, South Carolina. According to the JOT Joint Venture, the Ports of Charleston and Savannah are expected to experience limitations and inefficiencies in the future as a result of forecasted growth in the demand for containerized cargo within the region. The proposed JOT would accommodate an additional 7 million Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units (TEUs) per year. When added to the capacity of existing port facilities and planned improvements that are being developed by the GPA and SCPA, the proposed JOT would help meet the demand for containerized cargo within the region for the next 35 years. Based on the available information, development of the proposed JOT would result in the dredging of navigable waters (approximately 439 acres) and potential impacts to wetlands and other waters of the U.S. (approximately 54 acres). Therefore, a Department of the Army permit pursuant to Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act (RHA) and Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA) is required. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), Charleston District (SAC) has also determined that the construction and operation of the proposed JOT has the potential to significantly affect the quality of the human environment and therefore warrants the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), a Notice of Intent has been published in the Federal Register. The purpose of the Notice of Intent and this local public notice is to inform the public that the Corps is preparing an EIS to evaluate the proposed JOT. A public scoping meeting has not been scheduled at this time. However, a second public notice will be prepared by SAC, and meeting announcements will be published in local newspapers once the date and location for the public scoping meeting have been determined. In the meantime, individuals and organizations that are interested in the proposed JOT or whose interests may be affected by the proposed work are encouraged to review the available information on the project website (www.JasperOceanTerminalEIS.com).
