Kenai Bluffs Bank Stabilization Study on Display

Representatives with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Alaska District will conduct a public meeting about the Kenai Bluffs Bank Stabilization Section 116 feasibility study.

The meeting will take place at 6 p.m. today at the Kenai Visitor and Cultural Center, USACE said.

The Corps has prepared a draft integrated feasibility report, environmental assessment and draft Finding of No Significant Impact, or FONSI, for the study.

The project consists of constructing a berm about 5,000 feet long below the Kenai Bluffs toe. It is designed to prevent flood tides from washing away material that collects at the bluff toe and coastal storms from eroding the lower portion of the bluff.

As the material accumulates between the berm and toe of the bluff, the bluff face will be left to erode back naturally to a more stable slope, which is estimated to take up to 15 years.

The proposed project description and potential environmental impacts are available for public review and comment for 30 days from the date of this notice, USACE said.
