  • POA-1979-142, Resurrection Bay

    Expiration date: 9/8/2014

    University of Alaska–Fairbanks, Seward Marine Center's stated purpose is to remove sediment deposited at the dock face during the 2012 and 2013 flooding in Seward. The dredging will allow for the safe mooring of the Sikuliaq, a scientific vessel. To dredge 13,900 cubic yards of sediment that was recently deposited material from a 43,500 square foot area below the mean high water mark (MHWM, -9.6 feet) of Resurrection Bay to -35 feet mean lower low water (MLLW). Dredging would be conducted with a clam shell bucket or conventional hydraulic excavator from an anchored barge. The dredged material would be disposed of offshore , at the established disposal site in Resurrection Bay, approximately 2000 ' south of the Alaska Railroad Dock facility at depth of at least -180 feet MLLW. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-4), dated May 21, 2014.

  • POA-2010-496-M3, Shakmanof Cove_PN

    Expiration date: 9/8/2014

    Koniag’s stated purpose for the overall project is to provide reliable, year round access to an upland rock quarry. The applicant’s stated purpose for this proposed modification is to accommodate different types and configurations of barges because different entities each have their own type of barge that their company uses - not only do the sizes differ, but methods and abilities of loading/unloading. It is also quite common that a large company like Kiewit may have differing configurations of barge within its own fleet. PROPOSED WORK: Koniag Inc. is proposing to modify their existing permit to construct an additional barge landing dock (Phase 1 in the attached drawings), with the possibility in the future to expand this landing area to accommodate larger barges and/or barges of a different configuration (Phase 2). Please contact Heather Adams at (907) 753-2877, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at Heather.L.Adams@usace.army.mil if further information is desired concerning this notice.

  • POA-2009-651, Multiple Waterways

    Expiration date: 9/2/2014

    Alaska Gasline Development Corporation (AGDC) has stated, “The purpose of the Alaska In-State Gas Pipeline (ASAP) is codified in state law as one of the projects the AGDC is directed to develop. As stated in state law, AGDC "shall, for the benefit of the state, to the fullest extent possible, ... develop, finance, construct, and operate an in-state natural gas pipeline in a safe, prudent, economical, and efficient manner, for the purpose of making natural gas, including propane and other hydrocarbons associated with natural gas other than oil, available to Fairbanks, the Southcentral region of the state, and other communities in the state at the lowest rates possible." (Alaska Statute 31.25.005(4). The ASAP Project would be comprised of a natural gas conditioning facility (GCF) near Prudhoe Bay capable of producing 500 MMscfd of utility-grade natural gas; a 36-inch, 727-mile long, 1,480 psig subsurface natural gas pipeline connecting the GCF to the existing ENSTAR pipeline system in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough; and a 12-inch, 29-mile long, 1,480 psig, subsurface lateral line connecting the mainline to Fairbanks. The GCF would be constructed from modules delivered to the existing West Dock causeway in Prudhoe Bay. Facilitating transport and offload of these modular components will require modifications to dock head 3, winter dredging of a navigational channel to a 10-ft depth, nearshore dispersion of dredge material over bottomfast ice, channel screeding, and use of a temporary ballasted barge bridge during offload. The proposed pipeline would be buried except at possible fault crossings, elevated bridge stream crossings, pigging facilities, and block valve locations. Written comments should be sent to the following mailing address: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Alaska District, Regulatory Division, Attention: ASAP Project, Ms. Mary Romero, Post Office Box 6898, JBER, Alaska 99506-0898. Written comments can also be emailed to the following address: asapeiscomments@usace.army.mil. Comments may also be submitted on the SEIS website at www.asapeis.com.

  • POA-2008-351, Hutlinana Creek

    Expiration date: 8/14/2014

    Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT&PF) stated purpose is to reconstruct approximately 12 miles of the Elliott Highway, starting at Milepost (MP) 107.7 and ending at MP 120.5. The purpose of the project is to improve safety and maintain access for the traveling public and to reduce roadway maintenance costs. The project would involve realigning up to 5 miles of the highway, raising road embankments, replacing damaged or compromised culverts, and upgrading substandard horizontal and vertical curves. The continued development of the material site situated at MP 94.5 (impact volume ~ 114,800 cubic yards, or 9 acres) is also proposed by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). Material Site MP 134 (impact volume ~ 2,000 cubic yards, or 0.56 acres). would also be utilized in providing material for this proposed project. The existing Elliott Highway within the project limits is a two-lane gravel roadway with substandard curves causing the road to be impassable due to spring run-off or rain events, which are subject to erosion from poor drainage. Natural drainage patterns would be maintained by replacing existing culverts and adding new ones. The total estimated permanent fill impacts to wetlands are 116,800 cubic yards, or, 9.56 acres for the entire project. The total estimated temporary impacts to wetlands are approximately 22.6 acres within waters of the United States.All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-20) dated May 8, 2014, and (sheets 21-22), dated July 7, 2014. Please contact Patricia Lora at (907) 753-2797; toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at patricia.l.lora@usace.army.mil, if further information is desired concerning this notice.
