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.

Mr. Stephen Ribuffo's (Port of Anchorage) stated purpose is to construct the South Backlands Stabilization project in order to stabilize the shoreline constructed under Department of the Army (DA) permit POA-2003-502-N, Ship Creek, and protect the Alaska Basic Industries, Inc. (ABI) cement storage dome at the Port of Anchorage. The project site is located within Section 7, T. 13 N., R. 3 W., Seward Meridian; USGS Quad Map Anchorage A-8; Latitude 61.233588º N., Longitude 149.894339º W.; in Anchorage, Alaska. PROPOSED WORK: The Municipality of Anchorage through its Port of Anchorage Department (POA) proposes to construct the South Backlands Stabilization (SBS) project to stabilize the shoreline constructed under DA permit POA-2003-502-N. The SBS project would consist of grading approximately 7,500 square yards of shoreline to a three to one slope (3:1, horizontal:vertical) between the current surface elevations of +34 feet mean lower low water (MLLW) and +20 feet MLLW, lining the graded slope with geotextile fabric, placing 2 layers of underlayer armor rock (approximately 12,100 cubic yards (CY)) on top of the geotextile fabric, placing 2 layers of primary armor rock (approximately 24,100 CY) on top of the filter rock, and placing approximately 18,500 CY of type II classified fill on the landward side of the armor rock to tie into the existing shoreline. The SBS project as a whole would discharge approximately 54,700 CY of fill material into 4.6 acres of waters of the U.S. Approximately 24,900 cubic yards of material would be excavated from below the mean high water mark to prepare the site for the placement of fill material. Please see South Backlands Stabilization Project Description (Appendix A) for additional information. Please contact Ms. Amanda Whittier at (907) 753-5582, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at if further information is desired concerning this notice.
