Alaska Department of Natural Resources (ADNR) stated purpose is to construct a facility that would be used to sort, process, store, and transport logs (from the sort yard to tidal waters) to the commercial timber market from nearby forests that include State of Alaska land and potentially other landowners. Placement of 50 cubic yards of clean shot rock material within 0.15-acres below the high tide line (HTL) of Edna Bay to construct a 60-foot by 100-foot drive down log transfer ramp. Placement of a 46-foot by 42-foot concrete or timber framed HDPE float below the mean high water (MHW) line that includes a 6-foot by 75-foot metal ramp to allow upland access without grounding the float at all tidal stages. Construction of a log rafting and storage area within 10 acres below the MHW of Edna Bay. The proposed intertidal rafting area includes placement of a 500-foot double-log stiff leg and a 1,000-foot of single-log bag boom and the proposed intertidal log storage area includes a 900-foot double-log standing boom, all anchored in place. Placement of 10,980 cubic yards of fill material into 1.09 acres of forested wetlands to construct a log storage and sort yard. The five acre log storage and sort yard also contains uplands and would include a drainage swale (with check dams and a sediment pond) and a 300-foot culvert with an inlet sump and energy dissipater outlet.
