The Town of Plymouth 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 dredge and do other work in Plymouth Harbor at Water Street and Town Wharf in Plymouth, Mass.  

The proposed work involves dredging of approximately 1,500 cubic yards of material to approximately 5-6 feet below/waterward of the mean high water (MHW) elevation, the discharge of fill material into approximately 5,400 square feet (0.12) acre of tidal waters of the U.S. in order to facilitate expansion (relocation) of an existing 235-foot portion of a seawall approximately 15 feet seaward (NNE) of the existing high tide line.

The project also involve additional discharge of approximately 600 square feet of material (new riprap) for shoreline protection and stormwater improvements including relocation of an existing outfall.

All dredged material will either be reused onsite as fill material (to the extent practicable and permissible) or disposed of at a suitable upland site well-removed from waters of the U.S. Additional work includes installation of additional boardwalks, overlooks, parapets and other infrastructure improvements, according to USACE.

Public comments on this work proposed by the Plymouth Department of Public Works should be forwarded no later than September 21, 2017 to the New England District’s Regulatory Division, said USACE.
