USA: Stamford’s Davenport Landing Seeks Corps Permit for New Marina

The Davenport Landing Development – 28 Southfield 2011, LLC, is seeking a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District to conduct work in waters of the United States in conjunction with constructing a marina and doing other work in the West Branch of the Stamford Harbor in Stamford, Conn.

Davenport Landing is a proposed residential community located on the West Branch of the Stamford Harbor off property located at 28 Southfield Avenue in Stamford. The new development will consist of buildings which will contain apartments as well as a small, 30-boat slip marina. The marina will offer 10 transient slips, 10 slips to the general public, and 10 slips to the residents. There also will be public amenities, including parking, a café and access to the public boardwalk and viewing area.

Proposed work includes removing deteriorated shoreline structures and debris; replacing the existing 24-inch RCP pipe with a new 36-inch RCP pipe secured to a headwall; a new stone riprap energy dissipater to be installed to dissipate velocities and reduce erosion; retaining existing riprap and installing and maintaining approximately 1,500 cubic yards of new riprap over approximately 12,000 square feet of shoreline for stabilization; installing and maintaining approximately 12 pilings to support the approximately 385-square-foot public access viewing area; installing and maintaining an approximately 590-square foot, pile-supported timber pier; installing and maintaining four main docks and 16 finger docks and two dolphins; and installing and maintaining approximately eight piles or four concrete abutments to support the landward of the ramps.

The proposed project will impact approximately 2,200 square feet of Essential Fish Habitat for various species and life stages. This habitat consists of silt and clay. Loss of this habitat may adversely affect these species. However, the Corps has made a preliminary determination that the site-specific adverse effect will not be substantial. Further consultation with the National Marine Fisheries Service regarding Essential Fish Habitat conservation recommendations is being conducted and will be concluded prior to the final permit decision.

The application for the federal permit was filed by the applicant with the Corps of Engineers in compliance with Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, which regulates the discharge or fill of material in United States waters, including wetlands; and with Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act, which provides for federal regulation of any work in, or affecting navigable waters of the United States.
