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.

    PURPOSE: The Alaska Department of Natural Resources, Division of Mining, Land and Water’s stated purpose is to reduce trail degradation by rerouting the trail to higher ground that is less wet, and to reduce the possibility of trespassing on private property. The reroute bypass would provide safer year-round travel for large and small vehicles, which would include summer vehicles up to 25,000 lbs., and large mining equipment such as a Caterpillar D10 during the winter. See Attachment B, for a more detailed description. LOCATION: The project site is located within Section 12, T. 8 S., R. 8 W. and Section 7, T. 8 S., R. 7 W., Fairbanks Meridian; USGS Quad Map Fairbanks B-5; Latitude 64.235º N., Longitude 149.041º W.; Rex Trail near Seven Mile Lake, Alaska. PROPOSED WORK: The proposed work would bypass a 1 mile section of Rex Trail along Seven Mile Lake. The proposed project would discharge 16,810 cubic yards of gravel into 4.37 acres of black spruce wetlands to construct a bypass trail 6,766 feet long with a top width of 15 feet. In addition, seven pullouts 40-feet long and 20-feet wide would be constructed for use during construction and as pull off areas for oncoming traffic. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-8), dated July 27, 2017 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.

    Ms. Kate Kaufman (Hilcorp Alaska, LLC) stated the purpose for the development is to recover oil from the Liberty Prospect and transport it to the Trans Alaska Pipeline System via the Badami Pipeline. The project site is located within two federal leases (OCS-Y1650 and OCS-Y1585), in Foggy Island Bay within the Beaufort Sea, northeast of the Prudhoe Bay Unit, and east of the Duck Island Unit. The Liberty Development Production Island (LDPI) will be located approximately 5 miles north of the Kadleroshilik River in approximately 19 feet of waters at Latitude 70.2746º N., Longitude 147.5863º W. Hilcorp Alaska, LLC (HAK) proposes to construct a self-contained offshore drilling and production facility located in the Beaufort Sea OCS. A 12-inch sales oil pipeline inside a 16-inch outer pipe will transport crude oil from the facility to the Badami Sales Oil Pipeline. The offshore portion of the pipeline will be trenched on the ocean floor. The overland portion of the pipeline will be trenched for 350 feet (ft) from the shoreline, and then elevated approximately 7 ft high on vertical support members (VSMs) for most of the remaining distance to the Badami tie-in. The onshore pipeline will go underneath a newly constructed gravel pad where it intersects with the Badami ice road. A second gravel pad will be constructed at the pipeline tie-in point with the Badami Pipeline. HAK also proposes to mine the gravel needed for the project from a selected nearby site. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1 – 23), dated 06/13/17. Please contact Heather Markway at (907) 753-2797, or by email at if further information is desired concerning this notice.
