    Expiration date: 8/7/2014

    Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities' stated purpose is to conduct road improvements to the Dalton Highway. The proposed project includes the discharge of 185,000 cubic yards (cy) of fill material into 35.1 acres of waters of the U.S., including wetlands to conduct road improvements to the Dalton Highway, MP 401-414. An additional 111.7 acres of impacts are associated with the three proposed material sites for a total of 146.8 acres of impacts (See sheet 2 of 36 for the breakdown of impacts). MS 65-9-101-2 is located entirely in wetlands and would include the construction of a 7.2 acre work pad, 0.46 acres of access road, 19.6 acres of overburden storage areas, and a 40 acre mining area. MS 65-9-102-2 is located completely in wetlands, would use an existing work pad/staging area, would fill 0.33 acre of wetlands for an access road, and would use 18 acres for overburden storage, and would have a 23 acre mining area. MS 65-9-026-2 is located below ordinary high water (OHW) in the Sagavanirktok River. There would be a 7.5 acres stockpile area, 0.6 acres of access road and the mining area would be 23 acres in size, mined to a depth of 12’, and would result in 450,000 cy of excavation from the Sagavanirktok River. (Details on the material site can be found on Sheets 23-31 of 36). All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1 – 33 dated January 2014, and 34-36 dated May 2014). Please contact Ellen Lyons or Benjamin Soiseth at (907) 474-2166, or by email at Ellen.H.Lyons@usace.army.mil or Benjamin.N.Soiseth@usace.army.mil if further information is desired concerning this notice.

  • POA-1993-425-M8, St. Herman Bay

    Expiration date: 7/25/2014

    Pacific Pile and Marine, L.P's stated purpose is to provide safe and efficient transport of material from the City of Kodiak’s Near Island Quarry. Pacific Pile and Marine, L.P proposes to construct a new steel barge ramp (80 feet in length by 14 feet in width) in St. Herman Bay. The barge ramp would be secured into the existing concrete curb at the Near Island shoreline. A total of twelve 24-inch diameter steel piles would be installed below Mean High Water (approximate elevation +7.9 feet above the 0.0 foot contour); two individual piles would support the barge ramp, while two 3-pile breasting dolphins and two 2-pile breasting dolphins would facilitate berthing of barge vessels loading and unloading quarry material. Post-construction, the height of the piles would extend 8 feet above Mean High Water. Proposed work would be completed from a crane barge (160 feet in length by 50 feet in width); piles would be driven into the substrate via vibratory hammer. Each pile would require 2 hours of vibratory pile driving, and all 12 piles would be installed consecutively; no more than 24 hours to complete all vibratory pile driving. The applicant has proposed to utilize an impact hammer to clear isolated obstructions (only if encountered). In this unanticipated scenario, impact pile driving would last no more than 6 hours. The applicant anticipates starting work in August, 2014; construction is expected to last 7 days. There is no filling, blasting, or dredging proposed by this permit application. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-3), dated June 19, 2014. Please contact Michael Setering at (907) 283-3518, by fax at (907) 283-3981, or by email at Michael.t.setering@usace.army.mil if further information is desired concerning this notice.

    Expiration date: 7/18/2014

    ASRC Civil Construction, LLC's stated purpose is to expand an existing gravel mine to source gravel. The project would supply approximately one-half of the necessary fill material for the St. Mary’s/Mt. Village Road Rehabilitation Project. ASRC Civil Construction, LLC proposes to discharge dredged and/or fill material into 0.64-acre of scrub-shrub/emergent wetlands in conjunction with the expansion of Pitka’s Point Pit. The pit would be expanded in the east-west direction by 50 feet on each side, with work in wetlands consisting of overburden removal, stockpiling, and construction of berms at the pit perimeter. Mining would be completed to an overall depth of 10-15 feet below original grade down to the existing pit floor. Reclamation for this proposal would consist of distributing overburden and organics at the perimeter of the development, dressing slopes to 4:1, and seeding as needed. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-3), dated March 28, 2014. Please contact Jason Berkner at (907) 753-5778, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at Jason.R.Berkner@usace.army.mil if further information is desired concerning this notice.
