Will the tanker traffic associated with the terminal result in increased erosion to area properties and infrastructure?

Modeling suggests that deepening the channel to -75’ from -54 will not impact—and may actually reduce—vessel wake impacts.  Deepening to -75 will have no impact on maximum bow waves, and drawdown will be reduced as a result of the deeper channel.  Under all scenarios, the energy/impact of vessel wakes is expected to be minor compared to the natural wind-wave climate.
