Tidal flushing is important in maintaining the area’s shorebird habitat. Work being proposed, excavate 275 cubic yards of native beach material from a 6,000 square foot (sf) area below the high tide line (HTL), 23.4 foot above the mean lower low water (MLLW) elevation of 0.0 foot) of Mariner Park Slough and Kachemak Bay, a navigable water of the U.S., and discharge the dredged material into a 6,000 sf area below the HTL in order to Public Notice of Application for Permit reestablish the tidal outlet between Mariner Park Slough and Kachemak Bay which would reestablish natural flows in Mariner Park Slough. Discharged material would block an existing side channel which frequently becomes naturally dammed and does not provide adequate tidal flushing. Material would be excavated/moved with a bulldozer, excavator or similar machinery during lower tide cycles. No work would occur below the mean high water mark (MHWM, 17.3 foot above the MLLW elevation of 0.0 foot) of Kachemak Bay. Work would be performed on a recurring basis, as needed to address future slough mouth closures. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-4), dated November 29, 2018.
