USACE Proposes Kotzebue Harbor Dredging Project

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Alaska District has prepared a draft feasibility report and environmental assessment on the proposed navigation improvements at Cape Blossom about 12 miles south of Kotzebue.

The proposed project and preliminary analysis of potential environmental impacts are described in the draft report, which is being submitted to elicit public review and comment on the Corps’ recommendation to dredge a 4,700 foot channel from about -26 feet mean lower low water extending to a dock located at -12 feet MLLW.

According to USACE, this effort would remove about 707,000 cubic yards of material. A trestle that extends from the uplands to the dock would be constructed as well.

The report will be available for 30 days until February 8th on the Alaska District’s website.
