Comments Sought on Oak Bluffs Revetment Project

The town of Oak Bluffs 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 the rehabilitation and expansion of a deteriorated stone revetment in Oak Bluffs, on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.

This work is proposed along the northeastern shoreline of Oak Bluffs seaward of East Chop Road in Nantucket Sound in Oak Bluffs.

The proposed project involves the discharge of approximately 11,158 cubic yards of rip rap material over an approximately 34,500-square-foot area below the high tide line for the rehabilitation and expansion of an existing, deteriorated stone revetment to mitigate future erosion of the bluff.

According to the Corps, the town of Oak Bluffs has taken measures to reduce impacts to Waters of the United States by limiting seaward encroachment to the maximum extent practicable to achieve the project purpose. A majority of the proposed rehabilitation will occur within the historic and existing footprint of the revetment.

USACE is soliciting comments from the public; Federal, state, and local agencies and officials; Indian Tribes; and other interested parties in order to consider and evaluate the impacts of this proposed activity.

The deadline for sending comments on the project is May 9, 2019.
