Expiration date: 12/24/2023
The applicant proposes to stabilize the existing failing bulkhead surrounding the existing man-made slipway. This project includes two activities: (1) fill the existing slipway with dredged material obtained from the waterfront adjacent to the slipway, and (2) install 230 linear feet of new vinyl bulkhead seaward of the existing failing bulkhead and slipway. The project will improve the functionality of the site to facilitate on-going operations through the construction of the new bulkhead and filling of the existing man-made slipway. The proposed activities will result in unavoidable, permanent impacts to 2,613 square feet (0.06 acre) of tidal vegetated wetlands, 75,155 square feet (1.73 acre) of subaqueous bottom for fill, and 76,517 square feet (1.76 acre) of subaqueous bottom for dredging. The applicant is requesting a 10-year permit that will allow for periodic maintenance dredging in order to maintain a maximum dredge depth of -12 feet (MLW) to meet the needs for facility operations. Comments should be received by the close of business on December 26, 2023.
