Alagnak Holdings, LLC, states the project purpose is to continue dredging work to maintain the safe navigation and docking of commercial barges at Alagnak Holdings, LLC. docking facilities. Work being purposed includes to extend maintenance dredging for another 10 years at Alagnak Holdings, LLC. The volume of the material scheduled to be dredged annually is 75,000 cubic yards. Dredging is planned during each low-tide window between April and October to +8 feet Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW) in 1.43 acres (approximate dimensions 125 feet by 500 feet). Work would be conducted using wide-tracked bulldozers at low tide when the dredging area is de-watered. Dredged material would be disposed of on the tidal mudflats adjacent to and seaward of the dredge area located not less than 200 feet north of the Ordinary High-Water Mark channel of tidal Ship Creek. The dredge disposal area on the mudflats is 2.30 acres (approximate dimensions 100 feet by 500 feet). The proposed maintenance dredging activities will continue to be done at low tides when the mudflats at the dredging area are de-watered. In general, the dredging may require two days to complete within each low tide window. There are approximately 15 low tide windows each year between April and October when maintenance dredging can be done. The actual dates of dredging each year vary, because the dates of the low tide windows change. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-4), dated November 2020.
