Plan for Long Island Sound Groin Reconstruction on Display

Image source: USACE

Permit applicant Mark Lender 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 placing stones to reconstruct a groin in Long Island Sound, Clinton, Conn.

The proposed work involves the placement of 80 cubic yards of stone into a 360-square-foot area of Long Island Sound in order to reconstruct a groin that was originally constructed sometime in the early 1900s, but is not currently serviceable and is in disrepair.

The original groin was approximately 50 feet long by 6 to 8 feet wide, but has been displaced and at present covers a 900-square-foot area. The reconstructed groin is proposed to match the original footprint but also extend an additional 10 feet into Long Island Sound. The proposed groin will begin at the existing seawall and extend 60 feet waterward.

According to USACE, the proposed groin will be approximately 6 feet wide and range in elevation above the substrate from 3.5 feet to 6 feet.

The permit applicant stated that the groin is capable of protecting adjacent residences while not preventing sediment from moving to the other local beaches.

Additionally, the applicant has stated that the groin will maximize the width of the beach in front of the residences it protects, while not significantly impacting neighboring beaches.

Public comments on this work should be forwarded no later than July 26, 2018 to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District.
