    The applicant proposes to conduct maintenance dredging, by mechanical (clamshell bucket) method, from a barge, within the waters of Manasquan River. The maximum area of dredging is 0.217 acre (9,444 square feet), and the maximum depth would be 6 feet below the elevation of MLW. The project site is adjacent to the Manasquan River federal navigation project (minimum 150 feet away). It is proposed to dredge up to 199 cubic yards for the initial event. Dredged material would be initially placed in watertight containers on barges at the dredge site, and transported by barge across the river to the upland off-load site in Point Pleasant Beach for dewatering and transfer to trucks. Dewatering would be accomplished by surrounding with hay bales and silt fence prior draining water from containers. Trucks would haul the material to the Ocean County landfill for final disposal.

    Expiration date: 3/21/2015

    The applicant proposes to perform a total of 1,585 linear feet stream channel restoration along Hospital Creek within the Wernersville State Hospital property. The project can be broken into 4 subsections: A) 680 linear feet of stream restoration within the Mill Dam basin (including Mill Dam removal) immediately at and upstream of the dam, B) restoration of 495 linear feet of waterway immediately below the Mill Dam (including removal of the stilling basin area with ensuing, C) downstream restoration of 100 linear feet of stream below the Sportsman Road crossing, and D) the downstream restoration of 310 linear feet of stream just below the Main Street creek crossing including removal of a small concrete check dam. The proposed project would result in the disturbances to 2.45 acre of regulated waters including 0.37 acre of wetlands associated with the conversion of wetland to stream channel and 2.08 acres of open waters below the ordinary high water mark associated with stream channel re-construction and enhancement. It should be noted that the mill dam, a PADEP Category 1 Hazard Potential Dam, was drawn down in 1986 due to safety concerns and potential for a dam failure.

    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) proposes to construct an ecosystem restoration project within the Prime Hook National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) in Sussex County, Delaware. The refuge was established in 1963, stretching along the southwestern shore of Delaware Bay just north of Cape Henlopen in Sussex County, and encompasses 10,144 acres of tidal salt-marshes, agricultural lands and upland forests, bordering on three bay-front communities: Slaughter Beach, Prime Hook Beach and Broadkill Beach. The refuge was established under the authority of the Migratory Bird Conservation Act and provides an important stop-over site for migratory birds that travel the Atlantic Flyway. It also provides breeding habitat for federally and state-listed threatened and endangered species, as well as many neo-tropical migrating bird species.
