Mr. Roger Sampson stated the purpose is to install a rock pad with a rip rap bulkhead that would skirt the water’s edge of the property to allow the space and level ground to construct a home, garage, and space for parking while meeting the Alaska Department of Transportation (ADOT) residential set back requirement.
The project site is located within Section 4, T. 59 S., R. 79 E. Copper River Meridian; USGS Quad Map Petersburg D-3; Latitude 56.7919º N., Longitude 132.9805º W.; Olson/MacDonald Subdivision, Lot 2A. To get to the site: beginning from Petersburg, drive south on Mitkof Highway approximately two miles and on the west is the location of the property (208 Mitkof Highway, Near Petersburg, Alaska).
The applicant proposes to fill an area below the high tide line (HTL) but above mean high water (MHW) that would be 100 feet wide by 25 feet long by 12 feet high (2,500 square feet or 0.057-acre) with approximately 400 cubic yards of rip rap and 800 cubic yards of shot rock. The source of the fill material would be from Reid Brothers Construction's quarry at 339 Mitkof Highway. The excess material from the work site would be hauled and dumped at the Petersburg Borough Mud Dump. The equipment used for the project would be 10 yard dump trucks to haul in the fill material and to haul out any backfill, and the machine used for the excavation would primarily be a Kobelco 140 excavator, and a Komatsu 200 could be used for some aspects of the work. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-5, dated January 2018). Work would occur in March or April of 2018 and would last approximately 5-8 days.
