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.

Native Village of Napakiak, P.O. Box 34069, Napakiak, Alaska 99634, states the purpose of this project is to relocate the community inland to the recently platted subdivision due to severe erosion of the riverbank and increase in flooding of the Kuskokwin River over the last several years.  The applicant proposes the development of a new material source and construction of associated pioneer access road, 24 new house pads and driveways, 3 commercial gravel pad foundations and driveways, electrical distribution to the new subdivision, the extension of Mission Road, and the restoration and cleanup of former lots of homes and community buildings relocated to the new subdivision. The proposed scope of work will generally focus on moving structures closest to the river first and then proceeding inland. As structures are moved to the new subdivision, the lots they previously occupied will be cleaned of all debris and revegetated through a combination of seeding and willow staking. These efforts will improve the habitat nearest the river and most susceptible to erosion and degradation of the watershed. The proposed project would discharge approximately 30,705 cubic yards of fill material and permanently impact 5.31 acres of waters of the United States (WOTUS). Temporary impacts to WOTUS from clearing and grubbing is estimated to be 13.1 acres. The proposed project is located on an island between Johnson Slough to the north and west and the Kuskokwim River to the east and south within Sections 17 and 18 
of Township 23 N, Range 72 W, Seward Meridian, Latitude 60.69646º N., Longitude -162.00056º W., which is approximately 15 miles down the Kuskokwin River from Bethel, Alaska.
