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.
