  • POA-2015-191,Sagavaniktok River

    Expiration date: 5/8/2015

    The overall project purpose is to create a facility to support the operational and logistical needs of North Slope oil and gas operators. The applicant states that the facility would be used to provide storage for oilfield equipment such as a 30,000 square foot (sf) area for a laydown yard, snow storage, and equipment; a 6,000 sf workshop/office complex; and up to 105,000 sf of camp space and supporting modules (diesel generators, potable & waste water, etc.)., as well as bed space for approximately 200 workers. Additional space would be utilized for safe movement of vehicles, equipment, and pedestrians around the facilities and parking areas located on the pad. The proposed work is to construct a 5.01-acre gravel pad within wetlands abutting an existing developed facility. Specifically this work would result in the discharge of 40,450 cubic yards of clean fill material to provide a stable base for oilfield support equipment, vehicles, and facilities. All work would be performed in accordance with the plan view dated March 19, 2015 and the cross sectional view dated March 17, 2015 (attached).

  • 2003-473, Ikroavik Lake

    Expiration date: 5/8/2015

    The existing Class 2 freezeback solid waste landfill is at capacity and requires expansion to maintain uninterrupted solid waste disposal services for Barrow. The Barrow Landfill was designed with the assumption that the Thermal Oxidation System (TOS), an incinerator, would be operational and reduce the volume of fill entering the landfill. Cell 1 of the landfill has prematurely filled due to the TOS explosion in 2009 with sporadic operation since. Large Barrow cleanup projects have also consumed space in the landfill earlier than expected. The existing landfill needs to formally transition to Phase II and Phase III of development. This includes closure of Active Cell 1, completion of Active Cell 2, construction of a supporting working pad (Cell 3), and construction of Cell 4. Supplemental activities include installation of thermal monitoring wells for Cell 2 and updating wells for Cell 1. The landfill perimeter fence has become damaged from drifting snow and will also need to be repaired.North Slope Borough proposes to place 62,000 cubic yards of clean gravel fill material into 8.5 acres of wetlands. Twelve phases of development exist for this landfill. This project would construct the infrastructure for Phase II and Phase III. Please contact Janet Post at (907) 753-2831, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at janet.l.post@usace.army.mil if further information is desired concerning this notice.

    The applicant, Mr. Jeffrey Keener's stated purpose is is to produce commercial quantities of precious metals from private lands. PROPOSED WORK: The Applicant proposes to retain discharge of ±580,000 cubic yards (CY) of organic soils, gravel overburden, and pay gravels into ±18 acres of palustrine tundra wetlands, mined between 2010 and 2014, under a previous operator, Paradise Valley Mining. The applicant proposes to continue the operation under Metallogeny, and to discharge 20,000 CY of organic soils, 60,000 CY gravel overburden, and 120,000 CY of gravel overburden into 7.9 acres of palustrine tundra wetlands over a period of 5 years, 2015 to 2020. Five cuts are proposed, ranging between 1.7 and 2.5 acres in size. The cuts will range between 35 and 45 feet deep. Reclamation would occur after mining is complete. All work would be performed in accordance with the attached plans, (sheets 1-14), dated 26 February, 2015. Comments on the described work, with the reference number, should reach this office no later than the expiration date of this Public Notice to become part of the record and be considered in the decision.

  • POA-2014-414, Isatkoak Lagoon

    Expiration date: 5/1/2015

    Native Village of Barrow's stated purpose is to provide access to approximately 240 undeveloped residential lots in Barrow, Alaska. The community of Barrow is experiencing a shortage of housing of all types. The 2008-2012 American Community Survey 5 year estimate indicates that 13% of households in Barrow are overcrowded, 4% of which are severely overcrowded (US Census 2012). This project is priority number three in the Native Village of Barrow Long Range Transportation Plan (2010). Additionally, the August 2014 Comprehensive Plan identifies the need for road expansions to facilitate new residential housing development. The project proposes to construct 15,860 linear feet of roadway placing 124,978 cubic yards of clean gravel fill into 21.5 acres of wetlands. Roadways would be approximately 20 feet wide and have 5 foot wide shoulders with 4:1 side slopes tapering to 3:1 at the toe of slope. A total of 42 corrugated pipe culverts, with a 24 inch diameter, would allow for surface drainage. Fill would be placed over woven geotextile and 2-inch rigid insulation will be used to provide insulation between the roadway and permafrost. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-6), dated 11/20/2014. Please contact Janet Post at (907) 753-2831, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at janet.l.post@usace.army.mil if further information is desired concerning this notice.
