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.

    Kathy Christy, with Northwest Arctic School District, states the project purposeis to provide a new K-12 school in Kivalina, Alaska as a replacement for the existing McQueen School, which is insufficient to meet the current and projected needs of the community. The new school will also function as an emergency rendezvous location and shelter for people evacuating the Village of Kivalina as a result of significant ocean storm events. Work being purposed includes to construct a new school building, wastewater treatment facility, bus shelter, playground, teacher housing, water storage tank, fuel storage tanks, standby generator; water, sewer, power, add-heat and fuel utility lines; gravel access roads, parking area, and walkways. Excess soil material from excavations during construction would be stockpiled near the project site in designated areas. In addition, a monofill for disposing of inert construction debris would be located at one of the excess soil stockpile sites. The entire project would impact 12.26 acres of wetlands. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-17), dated July 2020. The project site is located within Section 20, T. 28 N., R. 25 W., Kateel River Meridian; Latitude 67.8060º N., Longitude 164.3760º W.; near Kivalina, Alaska.

  • POA-2011-00780, Kuskokwim River_PN

    Expiration date: 9/14/2020

    Renita Magnuson, with Paydirt Excavation, LLC, states the project purpose is to obtain sand and gravel fill for projects in McGrath, particularly for projects at the airport. Work being purposed includes to excavate and haul away up to 5,000 cubic yards of gravel/sand material within a 1.03-acre area of a large point bar in the Kuskokwim River. An excavator would be used to extract material to a maximum depth of three feet on the exposed point bar during low water. Excavated material would be placed directly into a dump truck then hauled away and stockpiled in an upland site in McGrath. Once excavations are complete, the disturbed area would be contoured to blend in with adjacent areas to prevent fish entrapment following changes in the water level. All work would be completed in the fall during low water when the river bar is exposed. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-2), dated August 12, 2020. The project site is located at Latitude 62.96069º N., Longitude 155.60558º W.; on a sand/gravel bar along the south bank of the Kuskokwim River and directly north of the end of the community airstrip, near McGrath, Alaska. Please contact Jason Brewer at (907) 753-2823, toll free from within Alaska at (800) 478-2712, by fax at (907) 753-5567, or by email at: if further information is desired concerning this notice.

  • POA-2020-00357, Delta River

    Expiration date: 9/14/2020

    Brett Nelson, with Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities (DOT&PF), states the project purpose is to construct a new riprap dike, berms, and armored banks with riprap to channel the Delta River back to its original location in order to protect Spengler Road and nearby residences from further flooding and erosion related damage. Pursuing this work with immediacy is important because the longer the river stays in its new channel the harder it becomes to repair Spengler Road properties and other DOT&PF infrastructure (i.e. the Richardson Highway). Work being purposed includes to construct a new riprap dike and berms and armor the banks with riprap to direct the Delta River back to its original channel, and away from Spengler Road. The dike would be armored with Class-II riprap with 5-feet (ft) keyway and would be 8-ft high with a 3:1 slope on the river side. The dike and berms would be constructed of gravel and riprap that would result in approximately 7,000 cubic yards of fill below ordinary high water (OHW). The dike would be approximately 150-ft long and 53-ft wide at the base be constructed of Class-II and Class-III riprap. The armored bank/berms would be approximately 1,700-ft long and 23-ft wide at the base and built of gravel borrow and armored with Class-II riprap. Total area of impact below OHW would be 1.2 acres, 0.2 acre for the dike and 1 acre for the berms. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-3), dated July and August 2020. The project site is located within Section 17, T. 09S., R. 10 E., Big Delta A-4; Latitude 64.1322º N., Longitude -145.8339º W.; Spengler Road, approximately from Milepost 5.3 to 5.8.

  • POA-2020-00341, Big Lake

    Expiration date: 8/27/2020

    Mr. August Lund, states that the project purpose is to have a grass yard and dock for lake access and a place to park the boat. Work being proposed includes to place 39,000 cubic yards (CY) of fill material into 0.298 acre of wetland. Landscape mesh will be put in place prior to placing the 39,000 CY of dirt. A wood dock is proposed to be placed over Big Lake. The proposed dock would consist of four separate sections 5 x 32 feet (ft), 4 x 24 ft, 4 x 12 ft, 4 x 20 ft, and a 12 x 12 ft deck. Three of the dock sections, totaling of 304 square feet (sq ft) (5 x 32 ft, 4 x 24 ft, and 4 x 12 ft) will be constructed over Big Lake. The portion of the dock over Big Lake, will be held in place by (12) 2 3/8 inch galvanized steel pipes, which will be driven in place from a private boat with hand tools. One section of the dock and the deck will be placed over wetlands and will not involve the discharge of dredge or fill material. The project site is located at Section 20, Township 17 North, Range 3 West, Seward Meridian; Latitude 61.546541º North, Longitude 149.859657º West; North Shore Big Lake Condominium, Lot 1; near Big Lake, Alaska.
