USA: Plans Unveiled for New Marina in Madison

Yarde Realty Company is seeking a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, to conduct work in waters of the U. S. in conjunction with constructing a commercial marina and retaining fill material along the East River in Madison, Connecticut.

The proposed project includes the retention of fill material and work in navigable waters for the construction of a 45-slip commercial marina constructed in two sections along the eastern shore of the East River. The line of slips will extend a maximum of 50 feet beyond mean high water (MHW).

The work is proposed in the East River at 4 Boston Post Road in Madison. The applicant has agreed to provide a contribution to the Connecticut In-Lieu Fee program to compensate for the 2,100-square-feet of fill material placed below the high tide line.

The project will impact approximately 0.3 acre of Essential Fish Habitat (EFH) for various species and life stages. 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 EFH conservation recommendations is being conducted and will be concluded prior to the final permit decision.
