This Review Plan defines the scope and level of peer review for the Ashtabula Strategic Navigation Dredging Interim Dredged Material Management Plan


  • Review Plan Engineering and Design Products I-RAP-Mud Lake, MN

    This review plan describes necessary quality reviews for engineering and design (E&D) products for the I-RAP-Mud Lake, MN project. Project objectives include: (1) to improve connectivity for water and aquatic organisms to move between Mud Lake and the St. Louis River; (2) to provide overwintering habitat by deepening and opening the north end of Mud Lake; (3) to restore wetland habitat by creating hemi-marsh for birds; (4) to improve plant species establishment, re-establishing wild rice, and limiting invasive cattails; (5) to recreate historic bay mouth bars and islands reusing dredged material; and (6) to remediate contaminated sediments, as needed. The project will include construction of a 10- to 30-foot opening under an existing railroad way. The opening design will consist of multiple, precast box culverts or a simple span precast concrete bridge founded on steel piles. Engineering tasks will include data collection, hydraulic modeling, and plans and specifications for dredging and the culvert or bridge. The construction contract will be awarded by others (USEPA or MNDNR). The USACE is expected to be retained for construction oversight support.

  • Review Plan Engineering and Design Products Soo Poe Lock Gate 3 Engineering and Design

    This review plan describes necessary quality reviews for engineering and design (E&D) products for the Soo Poe Lock Gate 3 Engineering and Design. Design of a new downstream (D/S) miter gate (Gate #3) at the Poe including gate leaves, pintle base, adjustable wall quoin and a rod connection interface to gate. The design package to include drawings, technical specifications, ECIFP, and DDR w/calculations. Fabrication and installation is not considered.

  • Review Plan Engineering and Design Products Soo Asset Renewal Crib Dam Stabilization, MI

    This review plan describes necessary quality reviews for engineering and design (E&D) products for the Asset Renewal Crib Dam Stabilization. This project requires design and construction to stabilize the crib dam (the wall along the tailrace at the power plant, center dam) located at the Soo Locks in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. The stability of the crib dam is critical for maintaining water levels in the St. Marys River at the power plant and providing access to perform operations and maintenance (O&M) activities in the area.

  • Section 219 McMechen Draft EA and FONSI

    Expiration date: 6/4/2024

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Pittsburgh District is evaluating a request for federal funding for proposed upgrades to the stormwater-collection system located in the city of McMechen, Marshall County, West Virginia.

  • Finding of no Significant Impact and Environmental Assessment

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), Buffalo District has assessed the environmental impacts of the subject project in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 and has determined a draft Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI). The attached draft Environmental Assessment (EA) dated April 2024, addresses the USACE repair of the Conneaut West Breakwater located at the City of Conneaut, Ashtabula County, Ohio on the southern shore of Lake Erie, about 70 miles northeast1 of Cleveland, Ohio. The Conneaut West Breakwater shelters Conneaut Harbor and its associated features from severe lake storms and waves. The breakwater provides necessary shelter from lake waves, allowing commercial vessels to navigate and serve industry at the harbor. In addition, the structure enables small vessels and recreational boats to navigate to and from marinas within the harbor project. The shoreline along Conneaut Harbor is also protected from erosion by the outer breakwater. Recent inspections indicate the breakwater has deteriorated from wave action since the last repairs were made to the structure. Thus, the breakwater is at risk of no longer providing adequate protection to the interior of Conneaut Harbor from severe lake storms and waves. Repair of this structure is necessary to restore the breakwater to its nearly original condition so it can provide adequate protection to the Conneaut Harbor navigation channel and shoreline.

  • Glenwood Wastewater Collection and Treatment Project, Preble County, Ohio: Final Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Louisville District has conducted an Environmental Assessment in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, for the Glenwood Wastewater Collection and Treatment Project, which addresses the need for sanitary sewer services in the Glenwood community in Preble County, Ohio.
  • Conneaut Creek Great Lakes Fishery and Ecosystem Restoration (GLFER) – Sea Lamprey Barrier Project

    Expiration date: 6/15/2024

    The purpose of this public notice is to specify what dredged or fill materials would be discharged into waters of the United States by implementation of the proposed action, advise all interested parties of the proposed project, and to provide an opportunity to submit comments or request a public hearing. Since 1954, the Great Lakes Fishery Commission (GLFC) has been implementing a comprehensive sea lamprey control program to reduce impacts of the invasive sea lamprey population on native fish stocks in the Great Lakes. Current sea lamprey control methods depend heavily on the use of chemical lampricides, and lampricide is applied in Conneaut Creek every two to five years to eliminate or reduce larval sea lamprey populations. Significant cost as well as public and ecological concern are associated with continued and repeated use of lampricide. As such, the GLFC has committed to reduce lampricide application through the implementation of alternative lamprey control strategies, including the use of barriers to block sea lamprey migration into spawning areas.

  • Conneaut Creek Great Lakes Fishery and Ecosystem Restoration (GLFER) – Sea Lamprey Barrier Project

    Expiration date: 6/15/2024

    This Detailed Project Report and Environmental Assessment (DPR/EA) for the Conneaut Creek Great Lakes Fishery and Ecosystem Restoration – Sea Lamprey Barrier Project addresses the feasibility and potential environmental effects associated with the implementation of sea lamprey control alternatives for the proposed study area along Conneaut Creek, Erie County, Pennsylvania. The DPR/EA evaluated various alternatives that would effectively limit sea lamprey migration into Conneaut Creek thereby reducing or eliminating the need for lampricide treatments. The Recommended Plan (Alternative 4a) is the National Ecosystem Restoration (NER) plan, which includes: A seasonally operated adjustable low crest barrier that uses an Obermeyer gate and electrical barrier with trap and sort and jumping pool at Griffey Road to provide more efficient and effective means to prevent or significantly reduce the numbers of sea lamprey from reaching upstream spawning habitat in Conneaut Creek.

  • Environmental assessment, Section 340 Sarvis Fork waterline extension project, Jackson County, West Virginia

    The Northern Jackson County Public Service District (NJCPSD) is proposing to design and construct a waterline extension project in Jackson County, West Virginia. The project is necessary to provide approximately 20 customers with clean, reliable, public drinking water in the Sandyville area along Sarvis Fork Road in Jackson County. Persons residing along Sarvis Fork Road and adjacent areas report the need for public water service due to inadequate quantities and quality of available groundwater supplies found in the vicinity.

  • Draft environmental assessment, Section 340 Greenbrier County, Phase II Waterline Extension Project, Greenbrier County, West Virginia

    The Greenbrier County Public Service District #2 (PSD) is proposing to design and construct a waterline extension project within Greenbrier County, West Virginia. Individuals within the project area currently rely on inadequate individual water systems consisting of wells and cisterns and do not have fire protection. The proposed infrastructure
