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.

The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities' stated purpose is to extract gravel for the rehabilitation of the Dalton Highway MP 401-414, (as authorized under POA-2013-665, dated November 7, 2014).  The proposed gravel pit is needed for the construction of the Dalton Highway project.  This public notice only concerns the proposed gravel pit.

PROPOSED WORK:  The proposed project would involve the extraction of gravel material from up to 45 acres below ordinary high water on a gravel bar adjacent to the active channel by excavating a linear trench that would eventually function as a river channel.  The applicant also proposes to permanently impact up to 46 acres of palustrine emergent wetlands adjacent to the Sagavanirktok River, for haul road construction as wells as staging area and/or stockpile pads.  An additional 90 acres below ordinary high water in the Sag River would be temporarily used as a staging and stockpile area. (The temporary stockpiles would not be placed in open water). 

All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan, (sheets 1-5 dated November 2014).

Comments on the described work, with the reference number, should reach this office no later than the expiration date of this Public Notice to become part of the record and be considered in the decision.  Please contact Ellen Lyons at (907) 474-2166, or by email at,  if further information is desired concerning this notice.
