  • POA-2020-00367, Brown's Slough

    Expiration date: 3/29/2021

    Mr. Joseph B. Dale II, with Dale Construction LLC, states the project purpose is to sell sand. Proposed work is to discharge of fill material into 10.5 acres of Palustrine emergent (PEM) wetlands to expand an existing sand pit. This work was done after August 17, 2017, and required authorization from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps). These wetlands are adjacent to Brown’s Slough which is considered a water of the U.S. This was an expansion of an historical pit consisting of approximately 24.9 acres of PEM wetlands that were cleared with mechanized equipment prior to 2005. The total existing impacts to waters of the U.S., including wetlands would be 35.4 acres. Additionally, the applicant would now like to further expand the pit by mechanically land clearing which would result in the discharge of material into an additional 4.6 acres of wetlands to bring the total size of the pit to 40 acres (represented by sheet 4 of 5). The expansion would be needed to provide the quantity of specified materials for the upcoming expansion of the Bethel Runway and Lower Kuskokwim School District projects throughout the area. The applicant would continue to excavate 50,000 cubic yards (CY) and potentially up to 150,000 CY of sandy material annually from the pit each year. This proposal would bring the existing sand pit into compliance with Section 404 of the Clean Water Act.All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheets 1-5), dated February 22, 2021. The project site is located within Section 11, T. 8 N., R. 72 W., Seward Meridian; USGS Quad Map Bethel D-8; Latitude 60.7946º N., Longitude 161.8674º W.; Chaney Subdivision Name, north of BIA road, in Bethel, Alaska.

  • POA-2020-00553, Latouche Passage

    Expiration date: 3/5/2021

    David Burlingame, states the purpose is to construct a sheltered harbor and boat slips for recreational watercraft, which would improve access to the Latouche Island Townsite Subdivision.by private landowners. The closest sheltered area is less than 2 miles away (Horseshoe Bay) in Horseshoe Bay State Marine Park, but this site lacks access to the Latouche Island Townsite Subdivision, hence, access involves chartering a commercial landing craft from Whittier. The proposed work is to construction of a sheltered harbor comprising of the following components: 1) two seawalls located at the north and south end of the harbor; 2) a two-pronged float supported boat slip within the harbor; and 3) a 40-foot dock ramp connecting the floating boat slip with an anchored dock on land. The project would be completed in three phases: 1) Drilling and blasting bedrock to -10 feet MSL depth for an estimated 3,000 cubic yards (CY) of bedrock; 2) Extraction of fractured cut rock to construct the north and south seawalls (constructed to plan specs and feature 1:1.3 slope); and 3) Drilling and anchoring of two 6-inch steel piers to a depth of -10 feet MSL followed by installation of the float-supported boat slip. The north seawall would require 2,810 CY of cut rock and would be constructed to an elevation of 20 feet mean sea level (MSL) and the south seawall would require 190 CY of cut rock and would be constructed to an elevation of 12 feet level (MSL). A qualified explosive-handler would drill and blast bedrock within an approximately 5,400 square foot area to an elevation of -10 feet below mean sea level (MSL) elevation. All blasting and excavation would occur during low tides (-3.00 to -3.49-feet MSL) between April 27-29, or May 23-June 3, 2021, (+0.35 to -3.96-feet MSL). All work would be performed in accordance with the enclosed plan (sheet 1 dated December 11, 2020, and sheets 2-3, dated January 7, 2021). The project site is located within Section 33, T. 2 S., R. 9 E., Seward Meridian; USGS Quad Map Seward A-3; Latitude 60.0515º N., Longitude 147.9088º W.; Latouche Island Townsite Subdivision, Prince William Sound, 75 miles Southeast of Whittier, Latouched Island, Alaska.
