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

    Norton Sound Health Corporation, states that the purpose is to construct a new health clinic in St. Michael. The project would improve medical services for residents of St. Michael by replacing the old clinic, which is inadequate to meet the needs of residents due to size limitations. The proposed project would result in a discharge of fill material into approximately 0.67-acre of wetland for the construction of a gravel pad. The primary gravel pad would measure pad measures approximately 120 feet by 150 feet with an entrance way measuring approximately 40 feet by 40 feet. The gravel fill pad would have an average thickness of five feet and side slopes would be 3:1. The project would include construction of an emergency vehicle storage building and morgue adjacent to the new clinic. The shared gravel pad will accommodate parking for two full size vehicles and seven ATVs, accommodate required setbacks, and fuel storage tanks. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-4). The project site is located within Section 25 of Township 23 South, Range 18 West, Kateel River Meridian; USGS Quad Map St. Michael B-1; Latitude63.48° North and 162.04° West; in St Michael, Alaska.
