Permit Application Public Notices

Public involvement is a key element of the Corps’ permit review process. During an application review, the USACE, Regulatory Division considers the views of other federal, state and local agencies, Native American tribes, interest groups, and the general public. The results of this careful public interest review are fair and equitable decisions that allow reasonable use of private property, infrastructure development, and growth of the economy, while offsetting the authorized impacts to the waters of the United States. This is accomplished through the posting of a Public Notice on the USACE, Regulatory Division's website and soliciting comments.

The USACE, Regulatory Division publishes monthly a list of individual permits issued, denied, or pending during the previous month. The list will identify each action by public notice number, name of applicant, and brief description of activity involved. It will also note the relevant environmental documents and the Statements of Findings (SOF) or Records of Decision (ROD) that are available upon written request through the FOIA process and, where applicable, upon the payment of administrative fees.

Special Public Notices

These are public notices that involve the Regulatory program but which are generally not limited to one particular project. These would include public notices for the establishment or modification of Restricted Areas/Danger Zones, issuance/re-issuance of General Permits (Regional General Permits or Nationwide Permits), changes to guidance and policies, etc.

 Chris Wrobel, ConocoPhillips Alaska, Inc., states that the purpose is  to improve existing roads within the Kuparuk River Unit (KRU) by bringing them up to current engineering standards and providing safe travel for all types of equipment.

*Location: The project site is located within Section 24 T. 11 N., R. 8 E.; Sections 1, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 19, 20, 21, 29, & 32, T. 11 N., R. 9 E.; Sections 5, 6, 8, & 9, T. 11 N., R. 10 E.; Sections 2, 3, 10, 11, 15, 22, 23, 25, 26, & 36, T. 12 N., R. 9 E.; Sections 25 & 36, T. 13 N.,
R. 8 E.; Sections 28 & 33, T. 13 N., R. 9 E., Umiat Meridian; USGS Quad Map Beechey Point B-5; and Sections 23, 24, 26, & 27, T. 11 N., R. 8 E., Umiat Meridian; USGS Quad Map Harrison Bay B-1; with a centroid Latitude 70.3371º N., Longitude -149.7316º W.; half way between Prudhoe Bay and Nuiqsut, Alaska.

*Proposed Work: The placement of 293,000 cubic yards (cy) of gravel would be placed into 48 acres of Waters of the U.S., including wetlands (47.63 acres of Palustrine emergent (PEM) wetlands, 0.27 acre of Palustrine unconsolidated bottoms (PUB), and 0.1 Riverine
lower perennial unconsolidated (R2U)) for the widening of 26 miles of KRU roads and drill site access roads.  The roads would be 35 feet wide at the top of the road with the width varying at the toe-to-toe between 61 to 81 feet dependent upon the topography of the landscape.  The project would be phased over five years (starting in 2018 with the completion expected in 2022) with approximately six miles of road being completed each year.  The determining factor in which roads are completed first would depend on future drilling objectives. The complete project would place a total of 1,300,000 cy of gravel for road improvements, most of which would be placed on top of existing fill.  No new roads would be constructed under the proposed work.
