Lt. Col. Jeremiah Hammill (United States Air Force (USAF)) stated the purpose is to repair the seawall at Cape Lisburne Long Range Radar Site (LRRS) to allow for safe aircraft operating conditions during takeoff and landing.
The project site is located within Section 34-36, T. 6 S., R. 60 W., Umiat Meridian; USGS Quad Map Point Hope D-2; Latitude 68.87355º N., Longitude 166.11225º W.; approximately 40 miles northeast of Point Hope, Alaska.
The applicant proposes to discharge 100,000-160,000 cubic yards (cy) of fill material into a 9.4 acre area below mean high water (MHW) during the reinforcement of a seawall protecting a remote airstrip. The material discharged below MHW would consist of smaller rock, sand, and gravel removed from the seawall. The project is anticipated to last a duration of three years, inclusive of both elements of the project (quarry rock extraction operations and the actual seawall repair). All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-6), dated July 18, 2017.
