Is it true that construction of the terminal at Harbor Island will impact over 3,000 acres of wetlands?

No.  The Port’s property on Harbor Island on which the terminal is planned is only just over 250 acres, and the vast majority of that property is upland.  The Port is seeking a US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) permit for dock construction and—per the USACE’s “No Net Loss” policy—will provide habitat mitigation that upholds the standards of state and federal resource management agencies, if required.  Preliminary surveys indicate no impacts to special aquatic sites.
