    On October 15, 2015, this office issued Department of the Army permit number CENAP-OP-R-2015-167-24 to the Borough of Stone Harbor. The permit authorizes dredging of accumulated sediments from various lagoons and bay-front areas within the Borough of Stone Harbor, including private boat slips. Dredging is authorized to a depth of 6 feet below mean lower low water (MLLW), with an additional 2 feet of "over-dredge" allowance, for a total maximum allowable depth of 8 feet below MLLW. This equates to a depth of 6.16 feet below mean low water (MLW), or 8.16 feet below MLW with the over-dredge. This permit includes authorization for 10 years of maintenance dredging. The permit expires December 31, 2025. The permittee is seeking authorization to switch from hydraulic dredging, with geotextile tube dewatering, to mechanical or bucket dredging, with transport of material by barge or scow, for the next phase of work. The permittee proposes to keep both options available for any future maintenance to be done under the life of the permit, which expires at the end of 2025.
