Southeast Stevedoring stated the purpose is to construct a pad to provide additional yard space for marine vessel storage adjacent to the existing launch ramp. The fill would increase the usability of the launch ramp by creating a bulkhead on the southeast side. This would allow shore assistance from both sides when moving boats, barges, or other marine structures such as buoys or floats. The breakwater would attenuate waves at the facility.
The project site is located within Section 33, T. 75 S., R. 91 E., Copper River Meridian; USGS Quad Map: Ketchikan B-5, Latitude 55.3158º N., Longitude 131.5972º W.; physical address: 2712 Bear Clan Street, Ketchikan, Alaska.
The applicant proposes to Discharge 18,900 cubic yards (CY) of shot rock and 600 CY of rip rap below high tide line, to construct a 42,600 square feet (0.98-acre) pad. Install a 200 linear feet floating breakwater, anchored by two 6,000-pound Danforth anchors and marked with two 58-inch diameter buoys. Install a 6-feet by 70-feet aluminum gangway and a 10-feet by 140-feet wood float anchored (pinned) by six 16-inch diameter steel piles. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan, 9 sheets, dated July 26, 2017.
