  • 4. James River
  • 5. The Corps of Engineers navigationmission carries out one of the primaryneeds and uses of the James River.It is our job to keep the channel open andnavigable.
  • 6. Navigation
  • 7. In order to maintain the channel, the Corpsmust obtain» DEQ 401 Water Quality Certification» VMRC permit
  • 8. For permitting purposes, the 90 mile JamesRiver navigation channel is separated intothree parts:– Upper – Mile 90 to mile 70 (Richmond Harborto Hopewell)– Middle – Mile 69 to mile 27 (Hopewell to HogIsland)– Lower – Mile 27 to mile 5 (Hog Island to theriver mouth)
  • 9. Each of these channel segments has distinctengineering and environmentalcharacteristics that made separation intothree permits logical.– For example:•Middle James–Finer material–Overboard placement sites–More industrial•Lower James–Fine material–Higher salinity–Oyster grounds–Wider river•Upper James–Mostly granular material–Upland placement sites–Low salinity
  • 10. The state permits must be renewed every 5years (VMRC) or 10 years (DEQ).In 2004, 3 permits will expire:– Upper James – 401 Certificate– Middle James – 401 Certificate & VMRCpermit
  • 11. Conditions placed on previous permitsrequired to be completed before renewal.– Middle James River Dredged MaterialPlacement Alternatives Study 2002– Sediment Sampling/Testing City Point Channel1999– Before Dredging Benthic Surveys 1999-2000– Richmond Harbor Core Sampling and Analysis1993
  • 12. Conditions continued:– Richmond Deepwater Terminal Sediment Sampling2002– Sampling and Analysis Plan for Turkey Island Cut-offand Richmond Deepwater Terminal 2003– Navigation Project Evaluations & Sediment Fate• City Point Channel• Jordon Point-Harrison Bar-Windmill Point• Goose Hill Channel• Dancing Point-Swann Point
  • 13. In addition, the Corps undertook the followingengineering and other studies in the JamesRiver to learn more about the riverprocesses:– Surface Tidal Current and Sediment Distribution-Turkey IslandCut-off 1997– Long-term Dredged Material Management Plan for the UpperJames River 1995– Preliminary Analysis for Alternative Upland Dredged MaterialPlacement Sites at Turkey Island Cut-off 1998– Anadromous Fish Study 2002– Underwater Archeological Investigations 1995
  • 14. We now have a good understanding of theriver and how it is affected by dredging andplacement of dredged material.The results of some of these studies will bediscussed in more detail this afternoon.
  • 15. Status of Permit Renewals:– Middle James• VMRC – On Commission Agenda January/February• DEQ – Awaiting draft permit– Upper James• DEQ – Awaiting draft permit after completion ofcurrent testing at Turkey Island and RichmondDeepwater TerminalPossible condition to test before every dredgingevent
  • 16. Where do we stand?– The Corps has spent significant effort and fundsto study the James River to satisfy permitconditions and for our own engineeringnavigation needs.– Renewing permits is becoming more and moredifficult• greater time required• more questions to answer• more studies and sediment testing
  • 17. As our partners, all of you need to know andunderstand the costs associated withmeeting permit requirements, particularly inthese times of reduced funding• sediment testing requires significant timeand effort and must follow strict protocols• High cost for preparation, collection, andchemical analysis
  • 18. If we do not obtain permits, we cannot dredge– Affects current navigation in river– Uncertainty affects future plans to sendadditional ships up the James– Economic consequences for Commonwealth ofVirginia
  • 19. Key is to put the true engineering andenvironmental effects of dredging inperspective with all of the othernatural processes and man-madeactivities in the river.
  • 20. • Norfolk District, Corps of Engineers continues tolook for ways to maximize navigation, whilemeeting state regulatory requirements.• Good working relationships with agencies hasassured unrestricted navigation.• Requirements are becoming more difficult whilefunding is getting tighter.• The Corps continues to take pride in balancing thenavigation needs of the James River with the trueenvironmental impacts of dredging.Conclusions:

  • 82. Study Objectives• Evaluate effectiveness of catchingand tracking American Shad in theJames River.• Refine methods for future trackingof shad when dredge is operating inthe channel.
  • 83. Primary Goal• Establish if shad are affected bydredging operations.–If not, can restrictions be reduced toallow more time to dredge in thespring to better manage navigationrequirements?
  • 84. •Ship calls (-51%) and commodity types (-100% change inforest product traffic which now goes to Hampton Roads)have changed substantially since 1999Richmond Deepwater Terminal Turning Basin Expansion•2001 – Disposal Area Issue Raised, Numerous Sites Evaluated•2003 – Disposal Area Issue Resolved
  • 85. Dredged Material Testing In The JamesRiverContact:Robert PruhsTechnical Support SectionOperations BranchUS Army Corps of EngineersNorfolk District
  • 86. Why Test Dredged Material?• Section 401 CWA, Water QualityCertification (WQC)– WQC required for the discharge of dredgedmaterial into waters of the U.S.– Discharge must be certified as complying withapplicable State Water Quality Standards(WQS)
  • 87. Why Test Dredged Material? (Cont’d)• Currently, Corps is renewing the UpperJames River Virginia Water ProtectionPermit (WQC) through DEQ formaintenance dredging activities (milemarker 90 to mile marker 70)– DEQ has raised concerns that dredged materialmay contain contaminants– Specifically TBT, PCB, PAH, and Metals
  • 88. Where Will Dredged Material TestingOccur?• Currently, Corps is testing shoals atRichmond Deepwater Terminal and TurkeyIsland Cut-Off
  • 89. Where Will Dredged Material TestingOccur?• In the future, DEQ has requested that allshoals within the James River navigationchannel be tested as dredging becomesnecessary
  • 90. How is Dredged Material Evaluation tobe Performed?• Goal– Utilize the tiered approach and perform onlythe amount of testing necessary to make factualdeterminations– Implement the “Reason to Believe” principlefor future sampling/testing events to ensuregood stewardship of taxpayers dollars
  • 91. How is Dredged Material Testing to bePerformed?• Corps has conducted a Tier I evaluation– Determined that additional information was needed• Tier II & III: The Corps has developed a Sampling& Analysis Plan (SAP) utilizing the tieredapproach developed under the frameworkestablished by the EPA & USACE manual“Evaluation of Dredged Material For Discharge inWaters of the U.S. – Testing Manual”
  • 92. How is Dredged Material Testing to bePerformed?• Tier II: Involve determination of sedimentand water chemistry• Tier III: Effluent elutriate test will predict ifeffluent water from the respective uplandplacement sites act as a pathway for themigration of contaminants
  • 93. How is Dredged Material Testing to bePerformed?• Tier III: Effluent elutriate test mimics thedredged material placement process inupland placement sites and predicts therelease of contaminants (if present) as aresult of placement operations• Effluent elutriate test is a conservativeevaluation of impacts to the water column
  • 94. What are the Benefits of DredgedMaterial Testing?• Tier III evaluation for the current testing event atRichmond Deepwater Terminal and Turkey IslandCut-Off can be used to predict performance ofpotential contaminants in similar uplandplacement sites along the James River• Conducting dredged material testing in accordancewith the EPA and USACE guidance will validatedredged material testing protocols
  • 95. What are the Costs of Dredged MaterialTesting?• Cost of dredged material testing atRichmond Deepwater Terminal and TurkeyIsland Cut-Off– $65,000 for sample collection and analysis• What are the costs for testing dredgedmaterial at every shoal along the entirenavigable James River?
  • 96. What are the Potential Impacts toNavigation?• Withholding of Water Quality Certification– Result: No dredging, restricted navigation• Increased testing costs to meetenvironmental regulatory requirements– Result: Limited annual funding for JamesRiver Navigation Project may impact ability tomaintain navigation
  • 97. What are the Potential Impacts toNavigation?• Potential permit condition to test dredgedmaterial prior to each dredging event willadd significant costs and delays tomaintaining navigation
  • 98. Questions?
