Carey Meyer, with City of Homer, Public Works Department, 3575 Heath Street, Homer, AK 99603-7833, states that the project purpose is to provide a mooring facility for barges and staging of vessels preparing to enter the haul-out facility located above the High Tide Line (HTL). The applicant proposed to drive 19 steel piles below the Mean High Water (MHW) of Kachemak Bay, 17.3’ above the 0.0’ contour, to create a staging area for vessels preparing to enter a proposed haul-out facility located above the HTL Five 48-inch piles would be driven to a depth of 55’ below the 0.0’ contour to create one staging area, and fourteen 36-inch piles would be driven to a depth of 55’ below the 0.0’ contour to create an additional adjacent staging area. All piles would be 0.5-inch wall thick galvanized steel, and would be filled with 2000 PSI concrete. As part of the upland facilities, a storm water drain system needs to be constructed to direct water from five concrete wash-down pads. The outfall for this drain would be located below the HTL of Kachemak Bay, and would involve the discharge of 30 cubic yards of rip-rap over 500 square feet. There are two options regarding timing of the proposed work. The first option includes pile driving occurring between September 1, 2018, and October 31, 2018, and storm drain construction between September 15, 2018 and October 15, 2018; and the second option includes pile driving from March 1, 2018 and April 15, 2018, and storm drain construction between April 1, 2018 and April 15, 2018. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-8), dated April 29, 2018.
