Dredging Umbrella Permits

The US Army Corps of Engineers is responsible for dredging the boundaries of the federally authorized channel. Individual property and business owners will be responsible for the dredging of private waterfront property (e.g. residential dock faces, etc.). The cost of this dredging is the obligation of each property owner but we may be able to keep a portion of those costs lower by leveraging combined efforts through an economy of scale process known as “umbrella” permitting.   As is the case with any dredging project in the Bay, there are two components of cost – permitting and construction (i.e. dredging/removal of sediments) – within which there are a variety of agency approvals required. “Umbrella” permitting consolidates private dredging and disposal permit applications for submission to each of the agencies in the Dredged Material Management Office (DMMO), Cal Fish and Wildlife, and the City.
