AIWW Overview in Jacksonville District AIWW – Norfolk to St. Johns –Fernandina Harbor, Fl south to the St. Johns River. –21.9 miles long. –12’ deep x 90’ wide in land cuts and narrow streams. –12’ deep x 150’ wide in open waters.
AIWW NORFOLK, VA TO ST. JOHNS RIVER Atlantic Ocean CHANNEL 12 ‘ DEEP x 90’/150‘ WIDE JACKSONVILLE Gulf of Mexico TAMPA MIAMI N
IWW Overview in Jacksonville District IWW –Jacksonville, Fl (St. Johns River) to Miami, Fl. –349 miles long. –12’ deep x 125’ wide from Jacksonville, Fl south to Fort Pierce, Fl. –10’ deep x 125’ wide from Ft. Pierce, Fl south to Miami, Fl.
IWW JAX TO MIAMI Cape Canaveral Atlantic Ocean CHANNEL 12 FT DEEP X1 25 FT WIDE Jacksonville Miami Tampa N Gulf of Mexico Ft. Pierce Tallahassee CHANNEL 10 FT DEEP X 125 FT WIDE
AIWW / IWW Overview in Jacksonville District Jacksonville District has authorization to maintain all miles of the AIWW and IWW. Divided into reaches, typically by County. Dredging is determined via condition surveys to determine where the most significant shoaling is occurring. Federal Channel with a “low use shallow draft” designation = No Federal funding. FIND will be taking the lead until Jacksonville District receives additional Congressional Adds. –Corps will not even be able to perform condition surveys.
FY 11 –President’s Budget $350K. –Caretaker Activities – real estate activities, condition surveys, environmental activities. –Completed dredging in the Matanzas Reach with Contributed Funds from FIND and Bakers Haulover reach with Federal funding. –Completed construction of DMMA MSA 641 with ARRA funds and Contributed funds from FIND. –Initiated construction of DMMA IR 2 with Contributed Funds from FIND.

Jacksonville District AIWW / IWW Issues & Concerns Continued lack of adequate funding for dredging operations to fully maintain the waterway as authorized: 12’/10’ Deep x 125’ Wide. Pot of money that can be used for waterways such as the AIWW/IWW? Economic impact of not maintaining the waterway? –Tourism. –Real estate values. Regionalization pros & cons. –One Voice/consistent message. –Loss of institutional knowledge (State issues/regulatory).
