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.

  • POA-2019-00082-M2, Haggard Creek

    Expiration date: 1/15/2021

    Jill Baxter-McIntosh, with Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities (ADOT&PF), states the project purpose is to improve safety on this stretch of highway. Proposed work would modify the original permit to increase the wetland acres impacted by placement of fill additional disposal sites. This is a precautionary contingency proposal as the soil, which is rich in permafrost and fine particles, are wet and slumping and the original volume of excavated materials cannot be piled as originally planned. Work being purposed includes three newly proposed spoil disposal areas are in Palustrine Scrub Shrub wetlands. A maximum of 25.9 acres of impacts are anticipated if all the proposed disposal areas are needed for the project. This will be the result of placing approximately 70,500 cubic yards of unusable material in stabilization berms along the road embankment. Estimations of acreage and fill quantities were made assuming a 3:1 catch slope and 10-ft offset from the edge of right-of-way. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1–6), dated December 01, 2020. The project site is on the Richardson Highway between Mile Posts (MP) 159 and 167, located within: USGS Quad Gulkana C–3, T 10 N., R 01 W., Sections 5 & 6, T 11 N., R 01 W., Sections 6, 8, 16, 17, 21, 28, 29, and 32 and USGS Quad Gulkana D–3, T 12 N., R 01 W., Section 32. Three proposed disposal areas along the Richardson Highway include (1) 62.71389° N., -145.4333° W. to 62.72083° N., -145.4350° W.; (2) 62.7225° N., -145.4353° W. to 62.72889° N., -145.4367° W.; and (3) 62.73694° N., -145.4375° W. to 62.75111° N., -145.455° W.; near Glennallen, Alaska.

  • POA-1984-00184, Knik Arm

    Expiration date: 1/14/2021

    Alagnak Holdings, LLC, states the project purpose is to continue dredging work to maintain the safe navigation and docking of commercial barges at Alagnak Holdings, LLC. docking facilities. Work being purposed includes to extend maintenance dredging for another 10 years at Alagnak Holdings, LLC. The volume of the material scheduled to be dredged annually is 75,000 cubic yards. Dredging is planned during each low-tide window between April and October to +8 feet Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW) in 1.43 acres (approximate dimensions 125 feet by 500 feet). Work would be conducted using wide-tracked bulldozers at low tide when the dredging area is de-watered. Dredged material would be disposed of on the tidal mudflats adjacent to and seaward of the dredge area located not less than 200 feet north of the Ordinary High-Water Mark channel of tidal Ship Creek. The dredge disposal area on the mudflats is 2.30 acres (approximate dimensions 100 feet by 500 feet). The proposed maintenance dredging activities will continue to be done at low tides when the mudflats at the dredging area are de-watered. In general, the dredging may require two days to complete within each low tide window. There are approximately 15 low tide windows each year between April and October when maintenance dredging can be done. The actual dates of dredging each year vary, because the dates of the low tide windows change. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-4), dated November 2020. The project site is located within Section 12, T. 13 N., R. 4 W., Seward Meridian; USGS Quad Map Anchorage A-8; Latitude 61.227881º N., Longitude 149.902471º W.; Commercial Barge Dock Facility, south of Port of Anchorage, in Anchorage, Alaska. Please contact Estrella Campellone at (907) 753-2518, 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.

    Expiration date: 1/4/2021

    Mr. Rolland Curtis, states the project purpose is to restore a piling supported floating dock and contain the property with a stacked rock wall with fill. Work being purposed includes to discharge up to 4,520 cubic yards (CY) of fill material into 0.04-acre below the High Tide Line (HTL) of Zimovia Strait in order to create a stacked rock wall (273 CY) and fill behind the wall to level the ground with the top of the wall (4,247 CY shot rock). Additionally, six 13-inch diameter galvanized steel piles would be installed along the face of the rock wall to support a 10-foot wide by 130-foot long dock. Piles would be driven from the constructed fill pad at low tide, when the area is completely dewatered. All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-3), dated November 24, 2020. The project site is located at Latitude 56.4652º N., Longitude 132.3849º W.; 1448 Peninsula Boulevard, in Wrangell, Alaska. Please contact Ms. Roberta Budnik at (907) 753-2785, 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.
