Full Public Notice          Project Plans

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to construct shoreline repairs and improvements along the Arroyo Colorado shoreline within the Adolph Thomae Jr. County Park.  The project would include approximately 870 linear feet of pre-cast concrete block wall that would be installed on a 12-inch-thick base and gravel backfill for the pre-cast concrete block wall, approximately 3,200 linear feet of habitat bench that would include a section of revetment stone of 15-inch average size riprap and a 12-inch thick base for the revetment stone, approximately 315 linear feet of articulated concrete

block mattress that would be installed on a 6-inch base, approximately 200 linear feet of breakwater structure of 15-inch average size riprap, a 12-inch-thick base for the breakwater structure, and riprap transitional sections between structures.  Excavation and replacement of the native topsoil with base material would be necessary and would be reused onsite where needed as a structural backfill for the shoreline structures.  Excess topsoil would be hauled offsite and any disturbed areas would be protected by incorporating any required best management practices to avoid the disturbance of adjacent areas.  Installation of the habitat bench would involve the discharge of approximately 6,100 cubic yards of riprap, 3,415 cubic yards of gravel backfill, and 3,200 cubic yards of base stone below the delimitated High Tide Level elevation (+1.8 NAVD88).  Approximately 0.156 acres of wetlands would be filled with base stone using tracked equipment.
