Renita Magnuson, with Paydirt Excavation, LLC, states the project purpose is to obtain sand and gravel fill for projects in McGrath, particularly for projects at the airport. Work being purposed includes to excavate and haul away up to 5,000 cubic yards of gravel/sand material within a 1.03-acre area of a large point bar in the Kuskokwim River.  An excavator would be used to extract material to a maximum depth of three feet on the exposed point bar during low water.  Excavated material would be placed directly into a dump truck then hauled away and stockpiled in an upland site in McGrath.  Once excavations are complete, the disturbed area would be contoured to blend in with adjacent areas to prevent fish entrapment following changes in the water level.  All work would be completed in the fall during low water when the river bar is exposed.  All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-2), dated August 12, 2020.  The project site is located at Latitude 62.96069º N., Longitude 155.60558º W.; on a sand/gravel bar along the south bank of the Kuskokwim River and directly north of the end of the community airstrip, near McGrath, Alaska.
