Full Public Notice          Proposed Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to modify the previous authorization to discharge and dredge 300 cubic yards of compacted clay, 0.5 cubic yards of filter cloth, and 63 cubic yards of crushed stone to facilitate the construction of an aggregate boat back down ramp, vehicle turning area, and timber boat dock.  The proposed boat back down will require dredging of 14.22 cubic yards, maintaining a 1:4 slope.  The proposed dredged materials will be stockpiled on the existing road and re-used during proposed construction.  The proposed turning area will fill a 72-foot by 60-foot area that will consist of layers of compact clay, filter cloth, and a minimum 6-inch thick crushed stone.  The proposed work will be done by lifts to facilitate the access from just above the water level to perform compaction and placement to final grade.  The proposed boat dock will be a timber dock that measures 24-foot by 10-foot.  The proposed work will be done by a track hoe and a bulldozer impacting 0.1 acres of intermediate marsh on the southwest corner of the proposed turning area.  The proposed fill is to give space for proper ingress and egress of construction equipment and will be placed on the west side of the widest part of an existing road.  The applicant’s plans are enclosed in 11 sheets.
