Bass River Marina has submitted a permit application to conduct work on the Bass River (Horsefoot Cove) in West Dennis, MA, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England, said in its latest announcement.

Proposed work and structures consist of:

  • Marina: construction and maintenance of several marina floating dock additions totaling 6,989 square feet and accommodating up to 39 vessels. A total of forty-two 12-inch diameter timber piles will be driven as part of installation of the additional floats;
  • Between the town boat ramp and the marina: construction and maintenance of an 8-foot by 334-foot boardwalk (210 linear feet over the mean high water line, MHWL). A total of fifty-six 12 inch diameter timber piles (20 piles in upland) will be driven to construct the boardwalk;
  • Adjacent to the town boat ramp: construction and maintenance of an 8-foot by 51-foot pier, 8-foot by 16-foot terminal platform, 4-foot by 80-foot ramp, 12-foot by 24-foot landing float, and 8 foot by 176-foot long float system. A total of thirty-two 12-inch diameter timber piles (6 piles in upland) will be driven for the pier, ramp, and floats;
  • Outer Channel (Dredge area A): Dredge 2,065 cubic yards for a 60-foot by 900-foot long channel (53,766 square feet at toe of slope) with a side slope of 3H:1V and a depth of -6 mean low water (MLW);
  • Marina Basin (Dredge area B): Dredge 11,985 cubic yards, for a 204,090 square feet (at toe of slope) marina basin with a side slope of 3H:1V and to a depth of -6 MLW;
  • Boat Ramp Channel (Dredge area C): Dredge 4,825 cubic yards for a 60-foot by 450-foot long channel (25,699 square feet at toe of slope) with a side slope of 3H:1 V and a depth of -6 MLW.
