    Expiration date: 10/30/2017

    *Applicants Name - Andrew Beaver *Purpose: The applicant’s stated purpose is to provide the village of Kwigillingok with a three-cell sewage lagoon compliant with State of Alaska regulations and meeting Alaska Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (APDES) requirements and standards. The existing single-cell sewage lagoon does not meet APDES standards or have the capacity to serve additional users. The sewage lagoon discharge area also lacks fencing. ATV and snow machines with haul trailers have difficulty turning around because the existing boardwalk dead ends at the lagoon. Fencing the two sewage lagoon cells and creating a turnaround boardwalk is needed for worker and public safety and to protect the environment from accidental sewage spills. *Location: The project site is located within Kwigillingok, Alaska, at Latitude 59.86252º N., Longitude 163.169417º W. *Proposed Work: The proposed project would include the construction of a new primary lagoon cell (cell #1), rehabilitation of the existing lagoon cell (cell #2), develop a polishing cell (cell #3), upgrade an existing boardwalk, build new boardwalk, develop a new material borrow site, and construct a new fence. The proposed project would fill approximately 2.56 acres of palustrine wetlands to construct a new primary lagoon cell (cell #1) and a new material borrow site. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-11), dated August 31, 2017, and the project description below: *Contact Informatin for a Regulatory Project Manager: Jeremy Grauf at (907) 753-2798, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at Jeremy.Grauf@usace.army.mil
