Merrimack River Bank Stabilization Proposed

The Chelmsford Department of Public Works (DPW) 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 placing fill material to build the Merrimack River Bank Stabilization project in Chelmsford, Mass.

The proposed project is to perform work and place fill material below the ordinary high water line (OHWL), of waters of the U.S. in order to build the Merrimack River Bank Stabilization Project.

Some 1.36 acres of fill below the OHWL would be placed along 3,950 linear feet of river bank to stabilize the river bank along a stretch of the Merrimack River.

DPW is proposing three stabilization techniques: Bank Support (timber toe protection and vegetation management), Bank Repair (installing stone sill and soil to stabilize the slope), and Bank Restoration (restoring the entire slope cross-section by installing a stone sill and reconstructing the bank with coir fiber rolls and replanting the slope).

The deadline for sending comments on the proposed project is May 25, 2017.
