    The applicant, Capital Sand, requests permit authorization from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) for construction of infrastructure facilities needed to operate a barge loading facility on the Mississippi River. The purpose and need of the Capital Sand project is to create a safe and easily accessible location for the loading of aggregate. While river based projects have occurred at this location in the past, the previous infrastructure needed for the proposed operation was outdated, and had become unsafe. The new project proposes two dock barges with spuds measuring 40 feet by 140 feet. In addition to the infrastructure being placed in the river, two barge fleets, measuring five barges wide and two rows of barges long, are proposed to occur upstream on the right descending bank of Mississippi River mile 50.2 and 50.3 respectively. Impacts to the Mississippi River include the placement of the spuds for the dock barge. Landward of the bankline, in an area which does not contain jurisdictional wetlands, will be an unloading pit, conveyors, screen and telescoping conveyors with no supports past the top of bank. The proposed project occurs on the right descending bank of the Mississippi River at approximate river mile 49.9 to 50.3. Specifically, the project is found in Section 18, Township 30 North, Range 14 West, at latitude 38.3655119 and longitude -90.360707 in Cape Girardeau County, Missouri. Comments must be submitted by replying to or by sending written comments to the address listed in the notice. The public notice comment period opens on June 1, 2018, and will close June 22, 2018.

    The applicant, Jefferson County Port Authority (JCPA), requests permit authorization to construct infrastructure facilities needed to operate passenger cruises on the Mississippi River. The revitalization of a previously utilized project area consists of repaving and widening existing access roads, creation of parking lots, restoration of a formerly used dock, and creation of a bank landing. JCPA will minimize impacts to wetlands, waterbodies and the Mississippi River by utilizing previously developed sections of the site. The work is anticipated to impact 0.84 acre of wetlands (0.84 acre of forested wetlands and 0.0 acre of emergent wetlands), about 30 linear feet of an unnamed tributary and 0.25 acre (208 linear feet) of the Mississippi River for construction of the necessary infrastructure improvements. The public notice comment period opens on May3, 2018, and will close May 24, 2018.
