We have designed the construction and operation of the Gateway Pacific Terminal to minimize or avoid significant disturbances to the shoreline habitat at Cherry Point.
For example, we anchored the trestle to the wharf further inland in order to leave the shoreline “feeder bluff” undisturbed and to preserve the natural processes in the intertidal area. The site’s naturally deep moorage eliminates the need for dredging. In addition, the wharf and trestle will be constructed of concrete and steel, materials which have the least environmental impact.
We have also designed our loading operations to protect the shoreline habitat and will implement additional environmental safeguards governing the handling of materials at the site. Cargo will be moved onto or off of the ships in enclosed conveyors.
