PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to construct a new bulkhead in front of a failed, existing bulkhead for erosion control and to reclaim land that has eroded into waters of the United States (U.S.).  Approximately 889 cubic yards (cy) of material would be placed below the annual high tide elevation (481 cy of fill behind the proposed bulkhead, 118 cy of concrete fill, and 290 cy of riprap at a 3:1 slope), which would fill approximately 0.22 acre of unvegetated jurisdictional waters of the U.S.  The bulkhead would be approximately 230 feet long and would be located approximately 35 feet in front of the existing shoreline.  The proposed site is sandy bay bottom with water depths that range from -0.4 to -3.0 feet mean high water.  The applicant states the project is needed to “provide long-term protection from shoreline erosion and temporary stabilization structure failure.”  The applicant further states that impacts to the residential street (Finisterre Street) will continue until the shoreline is properly stabilized.  An Alternatives Analysis for the project has not yet been submitted.
