LOCATION:  

NWP-2014-177/2: The project is located in the Columbia River at River Mile 72, at the Port of Kalama, at the terminus of Tradewinds Road, Kalama, Cowlitz County, Washington (Sections 25 and 36, Township 7 North, Range 2 West, and Section31, Township 7 North, Range 1 West).  The coordinates of the project are 46.043235° North, 122.87678° West.

NWP-2015-111: The 3.1-mile linear project is located in water bodies and wetlands in Kalama, Cowlitz County, Washington (Sections 28, 29, 31, 32, 33, Township 7 North, Range 1 West, and Section 36, Township 7 North, Range 2 West).  The starting coordinates of the project are 46.053155 ° North, 122.812895° West.  The ending coordinates of the project are 46.047724° North, 122.866394° West.  The project would begin near Mile Post (MP) 1254.1 of the existing northwest mainline system.  The route runs west following the Mt. Pleasant ridgeline for approximately 0.8 mile, then turning sharply southwest for 0.1 mile crossing the intersection of Raven Ridge and Hale Barber Roads.  After crossing the intersection, the route continues southwest following Raven Ridge Road and the Mt. Pleasant ridgeline for about 0.3 mile before heading down slope in a westerly direction toward the floodplain of the Kalama River for 0.8 mile passing the north side of the Kress Lake recreation area.  From there, the pipeline route continues to the northwest, crossing the Olympic Pipeline right-of-way, a Bonneville Power Administration power line right-of-way, and Old Highway99 before turning southwest and crossing Interstate 5 (I-5) and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad line.  After crossing the railroad, the pipeline would enter the Methanol Plant site. 

WORK:  

NWP-2014-177/2: The proposed project involves construction of the Kalama Manufacturing and Marine Export Facility to manufacture and export methanol.

Marine Terminal Construction
The proposed project involves the construction of a new marine terminal located on the Columbia River at River Mile 72.  The marine terminal will consist of a dock, a berth, loading equipment, utilities, and a stormwater system.  The terminal will consist of a single berth to accommodate the oceangoing tankers that will transport methanol to destination ports.  The dock will be designed to accommodate oceangoing vessels.  An estimated 3 to 6 ships per month will use the terminal based on the production of the plant.  The berth will be designed to accommodate other vessel types and, when not in use for loading methanol, will be made available for general use by the Port, primarily as a lay berth where vessels could moor while waiting to use other Port berths and for cleaning holds. 

The dock will consist of a transition platform, berth trestle, and turning platform.  A single access trestle will be constructed measuring 34 feet wide and approximately 365 feet long to provide vehicle, equipment, and emergency access to the dock.  From the access trestle, the berth face of the dock will extend approximately 530 feet downstream, and will consist of an approximately  100-foot by 54-foot transition platform, a 370-foot by 36-foot berth trestle, and a 104-foot by 112-foot turning platform.  The dock will be supported by precast 24-inch octagonal concrete piles supporting a cast-in-place (CIP) concrete pile caps and precast, prestressed, haunched concrete deck panels.  Piles will be installed by impact hammer or by vibratory hammer, dependent on pile type.  The dock will total approximately 44,943 square feet and include 320 concrete piles and 16 steel pipe piles.  The bottom of the superstructure (deck, pile caps, etc.) will be located above the ordinary high water mark. 

For vessel mooring, two 15-foot-by-15-foot breasting dolphins will be constructed near the center of the berth trestle.  Steel plates will bridge the distance between the dock and dolphins.  Each breasting dolphin will consist of seven 24-inch precast, prestressed concrete battered piles supporting a cast-in-place concrete pile cap with mooring bollards.

Four 15-foot-by-15-foot mooring dolphins will be constructed (two upstream and two downstream of the platforms) for securing bow and/or stern lines.  Each mooring dolphin will consist of 12, 24-inch diameter precast 24-inch octagonal diameter concrete piles supporting a cast-in-place concrete pile cap.  The dolphins will be equipped with mooring bollards and electric capstans.  Access to the mooring dolphins will be provided from the platform by trussed walkways with open grating surfaces.  The walkways will be 3 feet wide, have a combined length of 375 feet and will be supported by four 18-inch diameter steel pipe piles. 

The fender system will consist of a 9-foot by 9-foot ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMW-PE) face panels with a super cone fender unit and two 12-inch diameter steel pipe fender piles.  Below the fender panels, the fender piles will have 18-inch-diameter high-density polyethylene sleeves.  Fender units will be placed on the dock face, two upstream and two downstream, and on the two breasting dolphins. 

A small building will be constructed on a corner of the turning platform for dockworker use.  A second small building will be constructed at the center of the dock, adjacent to the loading arms.  The building will be used as an operations shack for the loading arms. 

Since pile layout is conceptual, a 10 percent contingency has been added for the estimated number of concrete piles.  This will accommodate potential revisions to the pile layout and configuration as the structural design is finalized.  The project may require the installation of temporary piles during construction.  Temporary piles are typically steel pipe or h-piles and will be driven with a vibratory hammer.  These are placed and removed as necessary during the pile driving and over-water construction process.  With the addition of the contingency, the proposed terminal will require the installation of approximately 320, 24-inch concrete piles; 12, 12-inch steel pipe piles; and 4, 18-inch steel pipe piles. 

The proposed terminal will result in a total of approximately 44,943 square feet of new solid overwater coverage.  A total of 1,079 square feet of new benthic impact will be associated with new pile footprints.

Berth Dredging
The existing berth serving the Port’s North Port Terminal will be extended downstream to accommodate vessel activities at the proposed dock.  The extended berth area will be deepened to -48 feet Columbia River datum (CRD) with a 2-foot over dredge allowance consistent with the existing adjacent berth.  The berth will extend at an angle from the edge of the Columbia River navigation channel to the berthing line at the face of the proposed dock.  The footprint of the expanded berth will be approximately 18 acres, of which approximately 16 acres will require dredging to achieve the berth depth.  Existing water depths in the proposed berth area vary from -50 feet CRD to -39 feet CRD.  The total volume to be dredged the first year is approximately 126,000 cubic yards (cy). 

Sediment characterization for dredged material placement suitability was conducted in February 2015.  Characterization of sediments in the aquatic area was performed in accordance with guidance from the USACE Portland Sediment Evaluation Team (PSET) and its interim final guidelines, Regional Sediment Evaluation Framework (US Army Corps of Engineers et al. September 2009), for the Lower Columbia River Management Area.  Results indicate that the sediment samples did not exceed the sediment quality guidelines and, as such, the material proposed for dredging and placement will be suitable for placement at any of the existing Port placement sites (including in-water and upland placement sites) and on the upland portion of the project site. 

Dredged material will be placed upland at the project site to provide material for construction or for other uses, or it may be placed at existing authorized in-water and upland placement sites.  The existing authorized (NWP-1994- 462-1) in-water placement locations include: 1) flow lane placement to restore sediment at a deep scour hole associated with pile dike 77.48 M located on the Oregon side of the river; 2) flow lane placement to restore sediment at a deep scour hole associated with pile dike 75.63 M located on the Washington side of the river; 3) beach nourishment at the Port’s shoreline park (Louis Rasmussen Park) at RM 76; and 4) the Ross Island Sand and Gravel disposal site in Portland, Oregon. The existing authorized upland disposal sites include the South Port site located north of the CHS/TEMCO grain terminal at approximately RM 77 and the project site.  Additional in-water and upland sites may be identified and permitted for dredge material placement in the future if necessary. 

Maintenance dredging will likely be required to maintain the berth to the permitted depth, but is not proposed with this application.  This activity will occur in the same manner as used for the establishment of the berth.  The volumes and frequency of maintenance dredging events will vary based on the needs of the facility and the rate of shoaling.  It is estimated that an average of 27,000 cubic yards of sediment could be deposited yearly. 

Collector Well
The applicant proposes to install a collector well to gather water for domestic uses.  The collector well will be constructed by the Port near the Columbia River shoreline.  The collector well will measure 22-feet wide (inside diameter) by 100-feet in depth and will connect to a 2,200 square foot pump station facility.  200-foot infiltration laterals will be installed through the caisson, at approximately 98 feet below the exiting ground surface, and into the water-bearing formations using a hydraulic jacking tool.  Lateral lines will be installed below the Columbia River Ordinary High Water Line.

Temporary Crane Pad, Barge Access, and Temporary Site Access for Construction
It is expected that some of the components of the facility will be assembled offsite and transported to the project site via barge.  These modules may be offloaded from the existing Steelscape dock, directly from barges using a temporary crane, or would be offloaded across temporary false work for the new dock trestle.  A temporary concrete crane pad will be constructed on an upland portion of the site for offloading materials/equipment from barges.  The temporary crane pad will be located in an area outside of riparian buffers and above the highest high tide line of the Columbia River. 

Modules will be delivered to the site in self-anchoring barges, which will anchor offshore using spuds or similar temporary anchors.  Barges will anchor offshore, and will not ground out on the beach.  Barges will typically only be anchored in place for approximately 1-2 days, as material is being unloaded.  Once offloaded, the equipment/modules will be moved into place and erected on the site.  The temporary concrete pad will be demolished and the temporary crane removed prior to project completion. 

Construction Timing
Proposed in-water work will be constructed only during the in-water work window that is ultimately approved for this project.  The proposed project would be developed in one or two phases.  The construction duration would be approximately 26 to 48 months depending on whether it is built in one or two phases.  Construction is expected to begin in mid-2016 and be completed as early as mid-2018 and as late as mid-2020.  It is anticipated that pile driving will be completed over approximately 120 days (not necessarily consecutive) during the 2016-2017 and /or 2017-2018 in-water work windows.  Ordinarily, work will be conducted during standard day light working hours, roughly 8 to 10 hours per day.  Construction will take place from the uplands and/or from barges spudded in place.

NWP-2015-111: The proposed project involves the construction of a pipeline to transport methanol from an existing mainline line to the proposed Kalama Manufacturing and Export Facility described above.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is the lead agency for this project.  The public notice for this action was filed under Docket No: CP15-8-000.

The applicant proposes to construct and operate approximately 3.1 miles of 24-inch diameter natural gas pipeline and related facilities extending from Northwest’s mainline to the proposed methanol production facility.  The pipeline will begin at the existing 30-inch mainline (Mile point 0.0) and run west to the terminus at the new delivery meter station (MP 3.07) to be constructed within the boundary of the methanol plant. 

The proposed project will cross five wetland systems for a total of approximately 2,372 feet.  Horizontal Directional Drill (HDD) methods will be used to cross 1,252 feet of the five wetlands. 

Of the seven water bodies crossed, five are intermittent and expected to be dry at the time of construction.  If water is present at the time of construction, the five intermittent water bodies will be crossed using a dry open-cut ditch method – either fluming or dam and pump, during the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) recommended in-water work window.  If water is not present in the streams, the applicant will complete the crossing using standard upland construction methods.  All water bodies will be backfilled with native material removed from the trenches and stream bottoms will be returned to preconstruction contours.  Banks will be stabilized and temporary sediment barriers will be installed before returning the flow across the construction work area by removing the flumes or other temporary structures used to isolate the stream flow from the work area during installation of the pipeline.  The estimated fill volume for all water bodies crossed by the pipeline via dry-open cut trench is 224 cubic yards.  This is based on a trench depth of 8 feet and width of 3.3 feet with 2:1 side slopes and a total open-cut crossing length of 40 feet through the water bodies.

The two perennial water bodies will be crossed using HDD methods and are expected to occur during the recommended in-water work window for the Columbia River tributaries.  The HD entry and exit points have been located as far away from the streams as possible and the drill path will be separated from the bottom of the channel by sufficiently dense sediments to limit the potential for inadvertent surface returns in to either waterway.

The primary impact to wetlands from the pipeline construction is temporary.  Construction will impact about 4.03 acres of wetlands consisting of herbaceous, forested, or scrub-shrub habitats.  There will be permanent impacts to approximately 0.006 acre of scrub-shrub wetlands; all other impacts will be temporary.  Appropriate re-vegetation measures will be applied to each habitat type for restoration of temporary impacts.

The applicant will install temporary construction bridges to cross water bodies, where necessary.  Clearing equipment may be allowed one pass to cross over water bodies before installation of equipment bridges.  All other construction equipment will only cross water bodies using equipment bridges. 

The applicant proposes to start construction of the pipeline and related facilities in early summer 2017.  The recommended in-water work window for Kalama River tributaries is August 1-August 15 and the recommended in-water work window for Columbia River tributaries within the Project area is August 1-March 31.

PURPOSE:  
NWP-2014-177/2:  To construct a marine terminal and supporting infrastructure to export methanol to global markets by oceangoing vessel.

NWP-2015-111: To construct and operate a 3.1, 24-inch diameter natural gas pipeline to provide 320,000Dth/d of natural gas transportation to service NW Innovation Works proposed methanol plant.

MITIGATION:  
NWP-2014-177/2: The applicant has proposed three categories of mitigation for the proposed project: 1) pile removal; 2) engineered logjam (ELJ) installation; and 3) riparian habitat restoration and wetland buffer enhancement.  The project does not propose impacts to wetlands.

Pile Removal:  The Applicant proposes to remove two rows of existing timber piles now located in the freshwater intertidal backwater channel adjacent to the site on Port property.  The Corps own one of these timber pile structures.  The piles are either untreated or treated with creosote.  Piles are estimated to range between 12 and 14 inches in diameter at the mud line.  Approximately 320 piles will be removed from the two structures.  The removal of these piles will restore a minimum of 251 square feet of benthic habitat, within an area approximately 0.73 acres in size.  These structures, in their current configuration, affect the movement of water and sediment into and out of approximately 13 acres of this backwater area.  The removal of the piles will facilitate sediment transport and seasonal flushing of this backwater area, which will help improve water quality and maintain this area as an off-channel refuge for juvenile salmonids in the long term. 

Engineered Log Jam (ELJ) Installation:  The applicant will install eight ELJs along the nearshore habitat along the Columbia River shoreline adjacent to the site.  Each ELJ will measure approximately 20 by 20 feet and be composed of large-diameter untreated logs, logs with root wads attached, small wood debris, and boulders.  Each ELJ will be a minimum of approximately 400 square feet in size, and the eight structures will represent a total of 3,200 square feet of new large woody material, installed along approximately 800 linear feet of Columbia River shoreline.  The logjams will provide refuge and foraging opportunities for out-migrating juvenile salmonids. 

Riparian Restoration and Wetland Buffer Enhancement:  The Applicant propose to conduct riparian enhancement and invasive species management within an area approximately 1.41 acres in size along approximately 700 linear feet of the Columbia River shoreline at the site.  The applicant also proposes to enhance approximately 0.58 acres of wetland buffer at the north end of the site to offset unavoidable wetland buffer impacts.  The riparian and wetland buffer habitats will be enhanced by removing invasive species and installing native trees and shrubs that are common to this reach of the Columbia River shoreline and adjacent wetlands.  Native plantings proposed for the riparian restoration include black cottonwood and a mix of native willow species including Columbia River willow (Salix fluviatilis), Pacific willow (Salix lasiandra), and Sitka willow (Salix sitchensis).  Portions of the wetland buffer will be planted with black cottonwood.  Invasive species management at the site will target locally common and aggressive invasive weed species, primarily Scotch broom and Himalayan blackberry (Rubus armeniacus).  The restoration sites will be monitored and maintained for 5 years to document proper site establishment. 

NWP-2015-111: The applicant proposes to provide compensatory mitigation by purchasing credits from the Columbia River Wetland Mitigation Bank to compensate wetland impacts.  The applicant will purchase 0.01 credits to compensate for the permanent impacts to scrub-shrub wetlands and 0.052 credits to compensate for temporary impacts to wetland and riparian buffers. 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:  Additional information may be obtained from Ms. Melody White, Project Manager, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at 503-808-4386 or e-mail Melody.J.White@usace.army.mil

• Section 10, Rivers and Harbors Act 1899 (33 U.S.C. 403), for work in or affecting navigable waters of the United States.

• Section 404, Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1344), for discharge of dredged or fill material into waters of the United States.

ENDANGERED SPECIES: The Endangered Species Act (ESA) requires federal agencies to consult with the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and/or U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) pursuant to Section 7 of ESA on all actions that may affect a species listed (or proposed for listing) under the ESA as threatened or endangered or any designated critical habitat.  After receipt of comments from this public notice, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will evaluate the potential impacts to proposed and/or listed species and their designated critical habitat.

ESSENTIAL FISH HABITAT: The Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, as amended by the Sustainable Fisheries Act of 1996, requires all Federal agencies to consult with the NMFS on all actions, or proposed actions, permitted, funded, or undertaken by the agency, that may adversely affect Essential Fish Habitat (EFH).  If the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) determines that the proposed action may adversely affect EFH for federally managed fisheries in Washington waters, the Corps will initiate EFH consultation with the NMFS.  The Corps' final determination relative to project impacts and the need for mitigation measures is subject to review by and coordination with the NMFS.

CULTURAL RESOURCES: The District Engineer has reviewed the latest published version of the National Register of Historic Places, lists of properties determined eligible and other sources of information.  

NWP-2014-177/2: A historic properties investigation has been conducted within the permit area.  No sites determined eligible for or listed on the National Register of Historic Places were found to exist within the permit area.  Coordination with the Department of Archeology and Historic Preservation and Native American Tribes will be conducted as required under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.

NWP-2015-111: The Federal Regulatory Energy Commission as the lead agency for determining compliance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act will consult with the State Historic Preservation Office as appropriate.  This public notice initiates consultation under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act with any Tribe that has information or concerns with historic properties in the proposed permit area. 

The District Engineer invites responses to this public notice from Native American Nations or tribal governments; Federal, State, and local agencies; historical and archeological societies; and other parties likely to have knowledge of or concerns with historic properties in the area.  This public notice initiates consultation under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act with any Tribe that has information or concerns with historic properties in the proposed permit area. 

SECTION 408:  Project NWP-2014-177/2, the Kalama Manufacturing and Export Facility, may affect a US Army Corps of Engineers federally authorized civil works project, and if so would be subject to review and approval pursuant to Section 14 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 and codified in 33 U.S.C. 408.  Section 408 authorizes the Secretary of the Army to grant permission for the alternation or occupation or use of a Corps civil work project if it is determined that the activity will not be injurious to the public interest and will not impair the usefulness of the Corps project.  The Section 408 review can be conducted concurrently with the Section 10 evaluation.  However, the decision by the District Engineer on the Department of the Army permit applicant pursuant to Sections 10 cannot and will not be rendered prior to the decision on the Section 408 request.
