U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Issues The Public Notice for the Lake Restoration Permit
On August 29th, 2011, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) issued a Public Notice for the Wonder Lake Restoration Project.
This is the first step under their regulatory program to review, approve, and issue the Section 404 permit to authorize the lake dredging. A thirty day comment period is now open.
The Public Notice was mailed to lakefront landowners (being adjacent to the project area), as well as those properties adjacent to the proposed Sediment Drying Facility and the proposed pipeline route.
The Public Notice can also be viewed at the following weblink:
It should be noted that as published, the Public Notice incorrectly lists the “Location of the Proposed Action” as being the Sediment Drying Facility (SDF) that was first proposed for the NRB property on the east side of East Wonder Lake Road. That site is no longer under consideration.
However, all other information in the Public Notice correctly pertains to the new proposed SDF site south of Galt Airport.
The USACE website now contains the following correction:
Update: The Sediment Storage and Disposal Facility should have been identified as being located northwest of the West Bay of Wonder Lake and south of Galt Airport along Greenwood Road. The exhibits in the notice are correct.
