SPECIAL PUBLIC NOTICE - WOTUS STEP 2 - 2/14/2019: On February 14, 2019, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of the Army (Army) published for public comment a proposed rule revising the definition of “waters of the United States,” which would establish the scope of federal regulatory authority under the Clean Water Act (CWA). The proposed rule is intended to satisfy the requirements of Executive Order (EO) 13778 that directed the EPA and the Army to review and rescind or replace the 2015 Clean Water Rule (80 FR 37053) and consider interpreting the scope of “waters of the United States” consistent with the Justice Scalia opinion (plurality standard) from Rapanos v. United States (2006). The EO instructed that any new proposed rule shall ensure that the Nation’s navigable waters are kept free from pollution, while at the same time promoting economic growth, minimizing regulatory uncertainty, and showing due regard for the roles of the Congress and the States under the Constitution.

POA-2004-01238 - 2/7/2019: Elton McGahan, Post Office Box 8013, Nikiski, Alaska 99635, states that the purpose is to is to conduct placer mining activities for the recovery of gold. Work being proposed involves using heavy equipment to strip the vegetation and upper layers of the soil in 150-foot by 75-foot blocks (cuts) in rows parallel to Kal Creek. The stripped vegetation and topsoil would be stockpiled along the edges of the cuts. One to two feet of the overburden material in the now exposed cuts would then be ripped and excavated every couple of days as it thaws, until the pay layer is reached. This excavated overburden material would be stockpiled along the edge of the cuts separately from the vegetation and topsoil. Once the exposed pay layer thaws, it would be excavated and hauled to the wash plant for processing. Tailings from the processing would then be hauled back and discharged into the cuts. Stockpiled overburden would be spread over the tailings, and the cut contoured closely to mimic pre-mine conditions. Lastly, the topsoil and vegetation are spread over the contoured ground to facilitate recovery of vegetation. The project site is located within Sections 1 and 12, T. 27 N., R. 21 E. and Sections 6-7, T. 27 N., R. 22 E., Copper River Meridian; USGS Quad Map Eagle A-1; Latitude 64.141876º N., Longitude -141.187177º W.; approximately 23 miles east of Chicken, Alaska.
