Abstract : The proposed action relates to an application covered by Public Notice 73-86, dated 19 April 1973, for a permit to dredge and to construct a wharf and dolphins in the Colleton River on the north shore of Colleton Neck at Victoria Bluff, north latitude 32deg - 17min -36sec, west longitude 80deg -48min -09sec, Beaufort County, S.C. The plans submitted by the applicant show the proposed work to consist of constructing an 840- X 100-foot marginal wharf, six dolphins, and a 1000-ton derrick. An area 2000- X 175-foot, adjacent to the wharf and dolphins will be dredged to a depth 27 feet below mean low water. Approximately 89,000 cubic yards of silty-fine sand will be deposited in an area above mean high water. The purpose of the proposed action is to construct a metal plate assembly yard for the production of large aluminum tanks which are to be permanently installed on ocean-going ships for the transport of liquified natural gas. No natural gas is to be loaded, unloaded, or stored at the proposed facility.
