Public Notice          Project Plans

The applicant proposes to construct a shoreline restoration project that involves the following improvements: (1) construction of two native fill templates each measuring approximately 250-foot long, (2) construction of one offshore breakwater measuring 200-foot-long by 80-foot-wide, (3) construction of two shore-attached groins, each approximately 140 feet long by 80 feet wide, and (4) construction of two scour protection areas located within gaps between the offshore breakwater and shore-attached groins measuring 100-foot-long by 80-foot-wide, each. Suitable fill material to construct the fill templates would be obtained from the excavation of the Scour Protection Areas, placed at the Native Fill Material Beneficial Placement Areas shown in the attached drawings on six sheets. If the material is not beach quality, it would be hauled off site, and native fill material from approved sand sources located at Isla Blanca County Park or riverine sand from the Olmito Sand Pit may be utilized. The proposed offshore breakwater and groin structures would be constructed using either armor and bedding stone, or an alternative material type/units composed of concrete, steel, mesh, geogrid, geotextile, stone, piles, chains, anchors, oyster shell, or similar. Scour protection installation would include excavation and fill consisting of marine mattress material as a means to prevent scour within the gaps of the structures.
