East Boston Dredging Proposed

Lend Lease Development, Inc. is seeking a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, to impact waters of the U.S. in conjunction with dredging and doing other work in the Boston Inner Harbor in East Boston, Mass.

The proposed work involves the removal of existing pile fields and piers, dredging, stabilization of seawalls through the placing of rip rap, creation of new seawalls, installing an overlook pier and floating dock system, placing four stormwater drain outfalls and associated splash pads, and the creation of a living shoreline that will include the construction of a wetland, a kayak ramp, and a small rocky beach.

The proposed project will impact 1.44 acres of Essential Fish Habitat (EFH) for various species and life stages. This habitat consists of intertidal and subtidal areas consisting of coarse materials including man-made rubble, rock, brick, concrete, slag, and coarse sand.

Public comments on the work proposed by the Lend Lease should be forwarded no later than November 13, 2015.
