FJ Santos Living Trust 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 constructing and maintaining a wharf, dock building, pier, ramp and other work in Provincetown, Mass.
The proposed work involves construction and maintenance of a 52-foot by 216-foot wharf with a 20-foot by 30-foot dock master’s building, an 8-foot by 617-foot pier, a 5-foot by 40-foot ramp, installation of 155 steel piles by pile driver and relocation of a 90-foot float system.
The entire structure will extend approximately 985 feet beyond Mean High Water (MHW), USACE said.
The purpose of this proposed work is to gain access to deeper water and to prevent existing floats from bottoming out.
USACE said that public comments on this work proposed by FJ Santos Living Trust should be forwarded no later than August 30, 2017 to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District.
