Corps Seeks Comments on South Jetty Plan (USA)
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is seeking comments on a draft Supplemental Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impacts for a proposed dune augmentation project adjacent to the root of the South Jetty at Mouth of the Columbia River.
The purpose of the project is to prevent further foredune erosion and to minimize the risk of a breach of the foredune, Clatsop Spit and the South Jetty root.
The foredune augmentation is one component of the preferred and selected alternative as described in the Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impacts for the larger suite of repair and rehabilitation actions of the MCR jetty system.
