Expiration date: 12/16/2022

Native Village of Napakiak, P.O. Box 34069, Napakiak, Alaska 99634, states the purpose of this project is to relocate the community inland to the recently platted subdivision due to severe erosion of the riverbank and increase in flooding of the Kuskokwin River over the last several years.  The applicant proposes the development of a new material source and construction of associated pioneer access road, 24 new house pads and driveways, 3 commercial gravel pad foundations and driveways, electrical distribution to the new subdivision, the extension of Mission Road, and the restoration and cleanup of former lots of homes and community buildings relocated to the new subdivision. The proposed scope of work will generally focus on moving structures closest to the river first and then proceeding inland. As structures are moved to the new subdivision, the lots they previously occupied will be cleaned of all debris and revegetated through a combination of seeding and willow staking. These efforts will improve the habitat nearest the river and most susceptible to erosion and degradation of the watershed. The proposed project would discharge approximately 30,705 cubic yards of fill material and permanently impact 5.31 acres of waters of the United States (WOTUS). Temporary impacts to WOTUS from clearing and grubbing is estimated to be 13.1 acres. The proposed project is located on an island between Johnson Slough to the north and west and the Kuskokwim River to the east and south within Sections 17 and 18 
of Township 23 N, Range 72 W, Seward Meridian, Latitude 60.69646º N., Longitude -162.00056º W., which is approximately 15 miles down the Kuskokwin River from Bethel, Alaska.
