Deeper water by Terminal 5? Public meeting next week

Along with the ongoing environmental review of the big proposal to “modernize” the Port of Seattle’s Terminal 5 in West Seattle, a parallel process is under way for possible deepening of the water nearby. One week from tonight, a public meeting is planned for information and comments about the tentative plan announced recently by the port. From the official announcement:

The Army Corps of Engineers and the Port of Seattle have agreed on a tentatively selected plan of -57’ Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW) for both the East and West Waterways. This depth will allow the Port of Seattle, part of The Northwest Seaport Alliance, to handle the current and future generations of ultra-large containerships. Comments on the Draft Feasibility Report and Environmental Assessment may be submitted by email, at the upcoming public meeting, or in written form.

Details of the plan are here; the meeting is at 5:30 pm Thursday, August 18th, at South Seattle College‘s Georgetown campus (6737 Corson Ave. S.) If you want to comment by e-mail – the address is and the deadline is August 31st.

    Interesting. I wonder how deeper and, thus, colder water effects this part of the Duwamish and wildlife therein? Guess I may need to attend that meeting! (or ask the Port via email)

      Try again – worked for me just now; maybe you hit them with a fleeting glitch. Goes to the US Army Corps of Engineers website.

          @dsa: Wow, using Windows XP in 2016 on the Internet.  That is so unbelievably dangerous and insecure. As somebody who has a deep understanding of this kind of stuff, I highly recommend you upgrade out of WinXP ASAP and never do anything serious like email or banking on one.

            Never bank on line.

Sorry, comment time is over.
