Oakland Harbor Navigation Improvements, 50’ Deepening Project Phase 3E
- Hydraulic and clamshell dredging
- Over 6.5 million cubic yards dredged
- A portion of dredge materials used for the Oakland Middle Harbor Enhancement Area
- Over 5 million cubic yards of dredge material deposited for beneficial reuse at the Hamilton Army Airfield Wetlands Restoration Project (HWRP)
- Material was pumped up to seven miles to the HWRP site using a series of pumps
- At the HWRP, 547 acres of planned habitats including tidal wetlands, seasonal wetlands, upland ponds, upland grasslands, tidal ponds, a wildlife corridor, an intertidal channel and a mudflat area
The purpose of this project was to deepen the federal channels of the Oakland Harbor and Port-maintained berths from -42’ to depths of -50’. Dredge spoils were used to create environmental enhancement and wetland habitats.
