The applicant proposes to complete work in Zimovia Strait to level the rear 30 feet of his property, spanning its entire 88.5-foot width. The work would consist of driving six 12-inch, 40-foot-long, steel pilings to act as a bulkhead for a stacked rock fill. A 10-inch I-beam would be welded to the top of the pilings for support.

Approximately one-half that volume of rock fill would be placed into an area extending 15 feet waterward of the high tide line, which would result in filling 1,328 square feet of the intertidal zone. The project would begin upon issuance of a Department of the Army permit and would be anticipated to be completed prior to winter. The driving of the piles and the initial placement of the rock would occur while the project site is dewatered during at low tide.
