DPW Seeks USACE’s Permit for Northampton Scheme

The city of Northampton Department of Public Works is seeking a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, to conduct work in waters of the U.S. to place fill material to stabilize eroding river banks in Northampton, Mass.

This work is proposed within Roberts Meadow Brook adjacent to 87 Reservoir Road in Northampton.

The proposed work involves the discharge of dredged and/or fill material into at least 15,775 square feet of waters of the U.S. associated with Roberts Meadow Brook downstream of the Lower Roberts Meadow Reservoir Dam on Reservoir Road.

The purpose for this project is to stabilize a number of bank erosion areas along this approximately 525 linear foot section of the brook.

The city of Northampton proposes to install four cross vanes to re-establish the primary flow channel, to regrade erosion areas, as well as to install new stone revetments and rehabilitate existing stone revetments.

As part of this project, the city of Northampton proposes to bypass flows around this stream section during construction so that construction can be completed “in the dry.”

Stone revetments will be constructed to an elevation of at least the 100-year floodplain elevation.

Construction access will be provided via a temporary gravel/stone ramp from the parking area at the Mustante Beach site.
