  • P-2747:  The applicant seeks authorization to impact approximately 568 linear feet of the left and right descending banks of an unnamed tributary to Burgher Branch.  Additionally, three grade control structures will be installed within the bed of the tributary.  The unnamed tributary flows to Burgher Branch which is a perennial tributary to the Meramec River .   The banks of the unnamed tributary are proposed to be stabilized by using rip rap and willow staking in conjunction with a vegetated back slope.  The three grade control structures are proposed to be installed at a 20:1 slope with a center vane/low flow channel.  To prevent additional head cutting within the stream, grade control structures will be installed at a depth of approximately three feet and will be composed of rip rap.  The grade control structures will also be keyed back into the banks to ensure confidence that they will not be flanked due to erosion and/or head cuts.  Township 37 North, Range 8 West, Section 1.  The project area is located perpendicular to Forum Drive approximately 500 feet south of the intersection of Forum Drive and Old St. James Road , in Rolla , Missouri .  The area of impact occurs on the unnamed tributary from the culvert under Forum Drive to the confluence of the unnamed tributary and Burgher Branch. 
  • Supplemental Public Notice P-2746b, MVS-2009-796 :The applicant proposes to construct an approximate 540 foot dock structure connecting the North and South, St. Louis City Municipal docks, along the right descending bank of the Mississippi River at river mile 181.6. Please refer to the previous public notice, P-2746, for a more detailed description. This supplemental notice addresses the applicant’s modified intentions to construct a new sheet pile bulkhead wall riverward of the existing 800 foot South Dock bulkhead wall. The existing South Dock bulkhead wall is failing but will not be removed. Instead the applicant intends to construct a new sheet pile bulkhead wall riverward of the existing bulkhead wall. The new bulkhead wall will be constructed approximately 3 to 4 feet in front of the failing bulkhead wall and the interstitial space between the walls will be back filled with clean fill material. The fill material proposed by the applicant will be either crushed stone or concrete and will be based on adequate funding allocated to the project. A Composite beam and tie back system will reinforce the new bulkhead wall to the existing bulkhead wall. Approximately 13,000 cubic yards of crushed stone or concrete would be required to fill the interstitial space between the two sheet pile bulkheads. The proposed Middle Dock will then be connected to the new South Dock bulkhead wall as described in the original public notice. The project is American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funded and will be completed as a design-build project.
  • P-2746:The St. Louis Port Authority proposes to construct an approximate 540 foot dock structure connecting the North and South, St. Louis City Municipal docks, along the right descending bank of the Mississippi River at river mile 181.6. The project would involve the removal of an existing 24 foot by 162 foot concrete dock structure, removal of an existing sheet pile cell, installation of a new tie-back dead man system, installation of a sheet pile bulkhead and the back filling of the bulkhead with clean crushed stone. The new middle dock would be constructed at a similar elevation and alignment as the north and south docks creating increased linear footage at the St. Louis City Municipal loading and off-loading river terminal facility. The new middle dock would not project into the river any further than the existing north and south docks. Approximately 1.10 acres of the Mississippi River would be impacted by the proposed plans. Similar loading and off-loading activities would occur at this location as conducted along the north and south docks. The use of temporary barges for construction purposes may be moored at this location to complete the work.

    P=2784 American Milling, L.P. seeks authorization under Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act to construct a pipe pile supported conveyor, loading tower and to permanently moor two captive dock barges.  Approximately 14, pipe dolphins structures and an upstream and downstream pipe piling support structure will be driven to the point of resistance within the Mississippi River substrate to support an approximate 400-feet-long conveyor and loading tower for the transfer of dry bulk materials.  Two captive dock barges would be installed along the upstream and downstream side of the loading tower.  The two captive dock barges would measure 35-feet-wide by 195-feet-long.  The barges would be permanently moored to the proposed pipe dolphins.  Cargo barges would be delivered to the site for loading to the outside of the proposed captive dock barges.  The delivered cargo barges would arrive as empties, be loaded, and then switched as loads to other existing fleets for shipment. The terminus of the proposed conveyor/loading tower and the riverward side of the proposed captive dock barges would not extend further riverward than the existing Arsenal Island mooring line.  As such, the proposed operation isn’t expected to hinder or impede navigation that already passes the mooring line of the Arsenal Island fleets.  The activity site is located along the left descending bank of the Mississippi River, at approximate river mile 175.66, near Cahokia, in St. Clair County, Illinois.
