Full Public Notice        Project Plans

The applicant is seeking after-the-fact authorization for the filling of approximately 1.2 acres of estuarine wetlands.  Additionally, the applicant proposes to fill approximately 0.4 acre of wetlands to complete the creation of additional roadside property and excavate approximately 31,400 square feet of non-tidal lake to a depth of 5 feet at mean low water.  The applicant seeks authorization to mechanically dredge through the existing wetlands separating the lake from the GIWW, to create a 30-foot-wide opening to the GIWW and a tidal basin.  An additional 0.1 acre of tidal wetlands will be displaced by the proposed dredging.  The dredged material will be used as fill on adjacent property, including completing the aforementioned wetland fill.  The applicant also plans on constructing an L-head fishing pier within the basin.  The walkway will be 5-foot-wide, with a 10-foot by 20-foot L-head.  The jurisdiction has been made by an approved jurisdictional determination during the initial compliance review of the unauthorized work.  A tolling agreement for the project was finalized on 08 August 2012.
