Permit Application Public Notices

Public involvement is a key element of the Corps’ permit review process. During an application review, the USACE, Regulatory Division considers the views of other federal, state and local agencies, Native American tribes, interest groups, and the general public. The results of this careful public interest review are fair and equitable decisions that allow reasonable use of private property, infrastructure development, and growth of the economy, while offsetting the authorized impacts to the waters of the United States. This is accomplished through the posting of a Public Notice on the USACE, Regulatory Division's website and soliciting comments.

The USACE, Regulatory Division publishes monthly a list of individual permits issued, denied, or pending during the previous month. The list will identify each action by public notice number, name of applicant, and brief description of activity involved. It will also note the relevant environmental documents and the Statements of Findings (SOF) or Records of Decision (ROD) that are available upon written request through the FOIA process and, where applicable, upon the payment of administrative fees.

Special Public Notices

These are public notices that involve the Regulatory program but which are generally not limited to one particular project. These would include public notices for the establishment or modification of Restricted Areas/Danger Zones, issuance/re-issuance of General Permits (Regional General Permits or Nationwide Permits), changes to guidance and policies, etc.

    Expiration date: 6/16/2017

    Mr. Wilfred Katcheak, Stebbins Rock Products stated purpose is to construct a barge landing, to support an upland quarry producing armor rock for use in the Bering Sea or Arctic Coast communities. The project site is located within Section 33, T. 22 S., R. 19 W., Kateel River Meridian; USGS Quad Map St. Michael C-1; Latitude 63.5400º N., Longitude -162.3560º W.; near Stebbins, Alaska. Proposed work is to excavate 1,200 cubic yards (cy) of material from the inertidal/ subtidal area, to construct a temporary barge landing (Dimensions:100-feet by 100-feet, 0.25 acre) water-ward of elevation +15.1 Mean Low Lower Water, to a maximum depth of 7 feet below the existing ground surface. The excavated sand and gravel, would be stockpiled on the adjacent beach above the high tide line. The barge landing would be reclaimed by pushing the stored sediments back into the excavated area, when the project is complete or at the end of the work season, whichever comes first. The rock quarry would be constructed in uplands, be approximately .25 acre in size, and provide 20,000 cubic yards of rock. Please contact Leslie Tose at (907) 753-5515, from within Alaska, toll free at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at if further information is desired concerning this notice.

    Expiration date: 5/31/2017

    Mr. Timothy L. McDonald (Seward Mount Alice Resort and Tourism, LLC) stated the purpose is to maintain the previously authorized depths of the existing basin and channel to prevent flooding of adjacent and upstream properties. The maintenance dredging would provide material to maintain/repair and enlarge the existing berm. The project site is located at Section 1, T. 1 S., R. 1 W., Seward Meridian; USGS Quad Map Seward A-7; Latitude 60.1229º N., Longitude -149.3772º W.; Kenai Peninsula Borough; in Seward, Alaska. PROPOSED WORK: Annually dredge up to 50,000 cubic yards of sand and gravel material from an 11.68 acre area of tidelands to maintain an existing basin and channel to their original depth of -6.0 feet below the mean lower low water mark (MLLW) of 0 foot elevation. The overall dredge area would be 2000 feet long and is broken up into two sections consisting of a basin section which would be 300 feet wide by 1,500 feet long and a channel section which would be 100 feet wide by 500 feet long. Over a 10 year period, up to 230,656 cubic yards of material would be dredged from below the high tide line (HTL, +13.8 feet above the MLLW), of which 229 cubic yards of material would be dredged from above the mean high water mark (MHW, +9.6 feet above the MLLW). Up to 21,500 cubic yards of the dredged material would be discharged annually below the HTL and MHW to create and maintain a 5 foot high by 100 foot wide by 1,000 foot long berm resulting in the discharge of gravel into 2.3 acres below the HTL, of which 0.4 acres would be above the MHW. The dredged material not used for maintaining the berm would be disposed of in nearby uplands. Work would be performed with a bull dozer and/or scraper equipment. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheet 1 dated April 4, 2017, and sheets 2-3 dated March 10, 2017).
