Stamford Harbor Project on the Table

The Strand/BRC Group, LLC is seeking a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, for the installation of a bulkhead in Stamford, Conn.

According to the Corps, the work is located in the West Branch of Stamford Harbor and East Creek at 100 Bateman Way in Stamford.

The applicant is proposing to install approximately 854 linear feet of bulkhead to replace the existing rip-rap revetment on the east side of the 14-acre site.

The 854-foot section of bulkhead incorporates two structural designs due to the presence of shallow bedrock. In the shallow bedrock area, the bulkhead will involve a combination pipe pile and sheet pile configuration; the bulkhead for the other areas will involve steel sheet pile driven to depth. Pipe piles and concrete will be used for the tie back system.

The approximately 17,000-square-foot area between the existing high tide line (HTL) and the proposed bulkhead will be filled with approximately 6,140 cubic yards of clean free-draining fill. The proposed bulkhead will be approximately 22 feet beyond the mean high water (MHW) line.

The centerline of the bulkhead will be coincident with the Pierhead/Bulkhead line. The bulkhead is needed to stabilize an eroding and subsiding shoreline.

The Strand/BRC Group also is proposing to install additional bulkhead on the northeastern and northwestern portions of the site.

Deadline for sending comments on the proposed work is September 14, 2017.
