Savannah harbor deepening plan's comment period ends

Posted: June 5, 2012 - 6:26pm  |  Updated: June 6, 2012 - 8:17am

By Mary Landers

 

Calling the final analysis of harbor deepening flawed, the Southern Environmental Law Center submitted a 48-page letter to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Tuesday detailing the nonprofit’s continuing objections to the project.

 

The analysis “shows that the proposed deepening of the Savannah River would be a $650 million waste of valuable public resources and leave the river forever dependent on giant mechanical lungs,” SELC summarized.

 

Tuesday marked the end of the public comment period for the Savannah harbor deepening project, for which final documents were released in April. Those reports recommended deepening the river from 42 feet to 47 feet to accommodate the larger ships expected with the expansion of the Panama Canal.

 

Foremost among the SELC’s complaints is what it terms a “striking inconsistency” between the rationale of the corps’ and that of Georgia Ports Authority for the project.

 

“In sum, we continue to be troubled by the Corps’ assumption that the proposed deepening is unrelated to efforts by the Georgia Ports Authority to maintain or increase its business,” SELC writes in its letter, noting that the corps’ assumption has been contradicted in public statements by GPA executive director Curtis Foltz, as well as elected officials. “In keeping with its assumption, the corps has explained that its ‘analysis did not reveal that additional permanent jobs would be created as a result of the harbor deepening.’”

 

“It’s an unbelievable disconnect,” said SELC senior attorney Chris DeScherer. “It’s pretty stunning.”

 

Corps spokesman Billy Birdwell said he could only comment on the corps’ final report.

 

“As you know our report says the number of containers coming through the port will be the same whether it expands or not,” he said. “The benefit comes from transportation efficiencies.”

 

GPA spokesman Robert Morris said SELC comments “continue to mischaracterize the economic analysis performed by the corps.”

 

“What the study does say is that the [Savannah Harbor Expansion P will return $174 million in net annual benefits and a $5.50 return on every dollar invested,” Morris said.

 

SELC had two economists study the report, including Bob Stearns, former deputy assistant secretary for the Army for civil works. The economists pointed out concerns in those benefit numbers, including uncertainty about whether U.S. or foreign import companies would most benefit. While the Savannah port is a net exporter by weight, it’s a net importer by dollar value of goods. Economist Asaf Ashar from the National Ports and Waterways Institute at the University of New Orleans also questioned whether the corps attributed benefits to the Savannah deepening that will actually be a result of the Panama Canal expansion.

 

The law center submitted its comments on behalf of the Savannah Riverkeeper, the Center for a Sustainable Coast, the South Carolina Coastal Conservation League, South Carolina Wildlife Federation, and the National Wildlife Federation.

 

SELC continues to call for a competitive analysis of multiple Atlantic ports to determine which can be deepened most cheaply and with the least environmental harm.

 

“Until the corps assesses the best regional bang for federal taxpayer buck, it’d be irresponsible to move forward with this $650 million deepening that will result in significant damage to the river and communities,” DeScherer said.

 

Birdwell said because comments were submitted directly to the corps’ headquarters in Washington, D.C., he did not yet have a count on the number of comments or their extent.
