    Bunge North America, Inc., seeks authorization, under Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act, to continue maintenance dredging operations at its’ Grand Tower facility in Jackson County, Illinois. This proposal is for the re-authorization of the same permit issued to the applicant in July of 2006 (P-2506 Public Notice Issued March 21, 2006). Yearly low water flows and increased sedimentation/siltation, fleeting operations have caused dredging operations to become increasingly more difficult. The applicant has elected to utilize the services of Luhr Bros, Inc., who would conduct the dredging of approximately 3,500 cubic yards of sandy material with a back hoe perched atop a spud barge. The backhoe will fill awaiting barges for transfer to a disposal site. The disposal site is an existing quarry owned by Luhr Bros., Inc., located in their Tower Rock Stone Company quarry, Missouri, at approximate Mississippi River mile 46. Once at the site, the material will be unloaded from the vessels with a backhoe, and transported by truck to the quarry. The proposed project does not involve a Section 404 Clean Water Act permit, and therefore does not trigger the need for a Section 401 water quality certification from the State of Missouri or Illinois. The project is located on the left descending bank of Mississippi River mile 82.5, Jackson County, Illinois. Specifically, the project is located on the Altenburg USGS quadrangle map, latitude 37:39:52.1481, longitude -89:30:49.4181. The Public Notice comment period opens on December 01, 2016, and closes on December 22, 2016.

The project occurs on a degraded, unnamed tributary to the Meramec River. The Land Learning Foundation refers to this project as the Craghurst Farms site. The project will restore natural stream functions within an approximate 31-acre area, which is currently predominantly used as pasture. If approved by the Corps, the Craghurst Farms site will create a total potential mitigation credit release of 18,962 stream credits. The Land Learning Foundation would make the stream credit available to Department of the Army permittees seeking to fulfill requirements to purchase compensatory mitigation credit, to offset losses of aquatic functions and services. The Corps solicits your comment on the proposed mitigation project. Responses are due to this office no later than November 18, 2016.
