USACE Seeks Comments About Ninilchik Environmental Assessment

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Alaska District, has prepared an environmental assessment and “finding of no significant impact” for maintenance dredging operations at Ninilchik Small Boat Harbor in Ninilchik, Alaska.

The Corps is proposing to modify its maintenance dredging operation for the 2017 to 2019 season at the harbor because the used dredged material placement site is nearing capacity.

Another site or beneficial use of the material must be found in order for the Corps to continue its annual maintenance dredging activities.

The Corps is also proposing to dredge approximately 4,000 cubic yards of additional material, beyond the approximately 9,000 cubic yards of material it annually dredges, to reach the federally authorized project depths in the mooring basin and entrance channel.

Comments regarding the proposed action will be accepted during the 30-day review period.
