Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant requests an extension of time modification of the permit to allow for a 10-year maintenance permit to allow removal or dredging of approximately 2,200 cubic yards of accumulated sediment below the Ordinary High Water Mark (OHWM) and placement of the dredged material on uplands.  Sediment routinely deposits in front of the river pump station intake structure in the form of a sand bar.  Maintenance is required to allow for the unimpeded flow of water to the intake pumps.  As mentioned above, the maintenance includes the removal or dredging and the upland placement of accumulated sediment.  Dredging activity will be completed on an annual basis in late winter or early spring before the spring pumping season or when sediment blocks the intake structure.  The dredge work will also include implementing dredged sediment dewatering measures.  An upland location, as illustrated in the attached figures, will be used to stockpile dredged sediment for de-watering purposes.  Equipment to be used will include back-hoes, bulldozers, long-reach and standard tracked excavators, and dump trucks.

Department of the Army Permit SWG-2007-00315, issued June 2008, authorized the maintenance dredging for 10 years at the existing pump station.  Department of the Army Permit 10766, issued August 1975, authorized the construction of the intake structure.  The means and methods the FPP Pumping Station dredging have not changed under the current permit and are not proposed to change.
