Full Public Notice    Project Plans    Restoration Plan

All work to be performed is for the repair and maintenance of existing stormwater control facilities constructed in the 1980’s and early 1990’s.  The applicant has stated that at the time of initial construction, the facilities were:  constructed under what the Section 404 limits allowed at the time, without pre-construction notification, or were constructed in uplands.  The structures are now in need of repair and maintenance to restore them to the original engineered design.  To re-establish channels to the original engineered design, accumulated sediments will be removed by excavation using a backhoe or track hoe machine and hauled to an upland dredge material placement area.  Maintenance will be limited to the original engineered design footprint.  To repair outfalls and structures, the existing structures will be removed in a similar fashion and replaced in such a manner as to not to extend the existing footprint.

The applicant proposes to perform the required maintenance activities of drainage facilities located within the levee systems, including the excavation of channels and fill-related activities associated with drainage improvements and/or repair.  These maintenance activities include 55.2 acres of excavation within 161.7 linear feet of waters of the US, and 10.92 acres of fill-related activities for repair and replacement of structures and bank stabilization.  There will be 0.089 acre of temporary impacts to wetlands during the repair and replacement activities.  Within 2 weeks of project completion, these areas will be restored to pre-construction contours.  The applicant has stated that no special aquatic sites will be permanently impacted by the proposed project.

The proposed project will allow the site to be self-sustaining and not require extensive manipulation or maintenance after it is fully functioning.  The existing channels and outfall system is in need for repair and maintenance.
