    Tim Sponseller, Fort Wainwright Directorate of Public Works, 1046 Marks Road, Fort Wainwright, Alaska 99703, states the The applicant’s stated purpose for the Small Arms Complex (SAC) Expansion project is to expand training options to troops and allow for use by more units. The Grenade Launcher Range would expand training options for army troops; the current Hand Grenade Familiarization Range is located within the footprint of the proposed expansion of the Multi-Purpose Machine Gun Range (MPMG Range), necessitating relocation; the Anti-Tank Range needs to be expanded to meet TC 25-8 (Training Ranges) design standards; the MPMG Range expansion would allow for use by more than one unit and ease scheduling conflicts; the SAC gravel pit would be expanded to provide gravel for the expansion projects; and utility trenching is needed to install cables that would provide power and communications to the range support buildings. The U.S. Army Garrison Alaska proposes to expand the SAC over the next 10 years. Approximately 993,000 cubic yards of clean aggregate would be permanently discharged into approximately 20.7 acres of wetlands. In addition, temporary fill would be discharged into approximately 1.0 acre of wetlands while installing conduit for underground electric and communications lines. Staging for construction would not occur in wetlands. Five specific range construction projects have been identified that would require placement of fill in Waters of the US – the Grenade Launcher Range, the Hand Grenade Familiarization Range Relocation, the Anti-Tank Range, the Multi-Purpose Machine Gun (MPMG) Range, and Gravel Pit Expansion – plus associated utility trenching. The project site is located within Sections 19-20, 24, and 25, T. 1 S., R. 1 E., Fairbanks Meridian; USGS Quad Map Fairbanks D-2; Latitude 64.809841º N., Longitude 147.596619º W.; Small Arms Complex, Fort Wainwright, Alaska.

    Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF), 2301 Peger Road, Fairbanks, Alaska 99709, states the purpose of this project is to address the need of a reliable route to the valley west of the City of Nenana. Access to the area is currently limited to approximately 12.1 miles of one-lane dirt road that is experiencing degradation due to springtime snow melt. The existing road also includes three bridges that require replacement. Extending west from the current road, access is only feasible by an All-terrain vehicle or snowmachine in the winter via a cleared line that extends to the Kantishna River floodplain. This portion of access is maintained by individuals who frequent the trail. The DOT&PF is proposing to construct the Nenana-Totchaket Road from the Nenana River to the Kantishna River. Project will include improving approximately 12 miles of existing road and constructing 20 miles of new road. The proposed Nenana-Totchaket Road Project is entirely State funded. The project site is located at Latitude 64.57553º N., Longitude -149.49913º W.; west of the City of Nenana, Alaska.

    Mr. Brian Baldwin, 22601 Eagle Glacier Loop, Eagle River, AK 99577 states the purpose is to construct their residence and apartment planned for long-term rental. This is an after-the-fact permit application. The applicant requests after-the-fact authorization of the discharge of a total of 3,680 cubic yards of fill material into 0.26-acre of wetlands for the construction of a driveway and house pad. The applicant excavated 1,300 cubic yards of peat, using 1,150 cubic yards as backfill and spreading 150 cubic yards in 0.05-acre of wetlands in front of the house. The house pad and parking area was constructed with 2,380 cubic yards of gravel in 0.21-acre of wetlands. A sock drain was installed across the lot and releases water at the low corner of the lot (north corner of the property) and a silt fence and straw wattle line was installed for construction. All work was performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-3), dated September 21, 2022. The project site is located at Latitude 60.9589672º N., Longitude 149.1256345º W.; Alpine View Estates, in Girdwood, Alaska.

    Northern Star (Pogo) LLC, POC: Michael Eckert, P.O. Box 145, Delta Junction, Alaska 99737, states the purpose is to expand existing facilities at the Pogo Mine to operate economically and safely for an additional ten years. The proposed work is a modification of activities previously authorized under POA-1996-00211. An additional total of approximately 4.9 acres wetlands would be permanently impacted by the proposed project from the following activities – the applicant is proposing to permanently impact approximately 2.6 acres wetlands by placing approximately 5,000 cubic yards of fill material to expand the Pogo Mine Dry Stack Tailings Facility (DSTF) and permanently impact 2.3 acres wetlands by placing 5,000 cubic yards fill material for the laydown area (Road 8 and Ruen Laydown Area). Non-mineralized rock from the property would be used as the fill material. The project site is located within Section 25 and 36, T. 5 S., R. 14 E., Fairbanks Meridian, USGS Quad Map Big Delta B-2; Latitude 64.445354º N., Longitude 144.877660º W.; approximately 35 miles northeast of Delta Junction, Alaska.

    Expiration date: 10/6/2022

    Municipality of Anchorage, Port of Alaska, 2000 Anchorage Port Road, Anchorage, Alaska 99501; Contact: Mr. Steve Ribuffo, 907-343-6201, steve.ribuffo@anchorageak.gov and agent HDR, Incorporated, 2525 C Street, Suite 500, Anchorage, Alaska, 99503; Contact: Mr. Michiel Holley, 907-644-2096, Michiel.Holley@hdrinc.com states the purpose is to create a new shoreline that is structurally and seismically stable and useable for port activities, while maximizing the retention of salvageable lands that were created under the Port Intermodal Expansion Project (PIEP) and supporting the improvement of hydrodynamic conditions of the USACE Anchorage Harbor project. The Port proposes to remove approximately 900 feet of unstable bulkhead and fill at the north end of the Port. The area, known as the North Extension, was constructed in 2009-2010 as part of the PIEP. The North Extension was never constructed to completion and is seismically unstable. This new proposed project, referred to as the North Extension Stabilization Step 1 (NES1) project, would remove the most seismically unstable portion (approximately half) of the North Extension. For the first stage of project, the Port will install soil improvements (deep soil mixing) along the proposed realignment of the shoreline to provide geotechnical stability to the embankment. The Port then proposes to construct an armor rock retaining wall inland of the current bulkhead; remove the fill between the existing bulkhead and new rock retaining wall to create an engineered laid-back slope with a top elevation of 38.0 feet MLLW and sloping to a toe elevation of approximately -40.0 feet MLLW; and then remove the open cell PIEP sheet pile wall that forms the current bulkhead through incrementally shearing and removing the sheet pile material and the impounded soils (PIEP fill material). The removal of fill behind the current bulkhead would require removal of approximately 1.33 million cubic yards of material, of which approximately 1.2 million cubic yards is below the waterline. The material above the waterline (approximately 130,000 cubic yards) would be excavated and separated into stockpiles of useable material and unusable material to be disposed of at a later time. The Port proposes to dredge the 1.2 million cubic yards below the waterline and place in the Anchorage Harbor in-water disposal site. The proposed project involves discharge of fill material below the high tide line of Knik Arm and construction of structures below the Knik Arm’s mean high water mark requiring require permits pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act and Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899. The project also proposes an alteration of the federal dredge limits of Anchorage Harbor, requiring review under Section 14 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 (33 U.S.C 408), hereafter referred to as Section 408. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-21), dated June 2022. The project site is in Knik Arm, at the Port of Alaska, within Section 7, T. 13 N., R. 3 W., Seward Meridian; USGS Quad Map Anchorage A-8; Latitude 61.233499º N., Longitude 149.985068º W.; in Anchorage, Alaska.
