Issued:  Jan. 3, 2013

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District and the Oregon Department of State Lands jointly welcome prospective Clean Water Act § 404 and Removal-Fill permit applicants to meet for a regularly scheduled interagency pre-application meeting. This meeting supplements existing pre-application Corps and DSL coordination.

 

The pre-application process is intended for non-routine permit evaluations that may be complex or controversial. The meeting provides the opportunity for meaningful comment and feedback to prospective applicants early in the permitting process.

 

Participating state and federal agencies will meet from 1 to 3 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month. The agenda reserves approximately one hour for prospective applicants to solicit feedback and present information to the assembled agencies.

 

The meetings are designed to assess draft information, and prospective attendees are asked to provide basic project information in the form of responses to a standard set of input questions at least two weeks prior to the meeting.

Locations and dates aren't yet established for 2014.

Note: Meetings may be relocated to Salem, Eugene or elsewhere if appropriate for specific prospective projects. 

Screening tools and pre-meeting information

Prospective applicants interested in a formal pre-application meeting should work with their points of contact at the Corps and DSL and review online project screening tools prior to requesting time at a monthly agency meeting.

 

The screening tools, known as the matrix and accompanying matrix user’s guide, are available at: http://oregon.gov/dsl/PERMITS/Pages/Removal-Fill-Pre-Application-Meetings.aspx

 

The matrix helps prospective applicants assess the potential value of a pre-application meeting to their project development. Even if the applicant opts to not have a formal pre-app meeting, the matrix and user’s guide may be helpful for any project potentially needing a § 404 permit (and associated § 401 Water Quality Certification) or a Removal-Fill Permit.

 

The screening tools are intended primarily for use by large-scale, controversial or major projects. The tools are available for anyone to use, and can be scaled down to assess the risks associated with less complex or less controversial projects.

NWP-2017-280

Posted: 8/23/2017

Expiration date: 9/15/2017


PUBLIC NOTICE
Application for Permit

Issue Date: August 17, 2017
Expiration Date: September 15, 2017
US Army Corps of Engineers No: NWP-2017-280
Oregon Department of State Lands No: 60345-RF

30-Day Notice

Interested parties are hereby notified the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District (Corps) has received an application for a Department of the Army permit for certain work in waters of the United States, as described below and shown on the attached plans. The Corps is soliciting comments on the proposed work.

Applicant:
Columbia Improvement District
Attention: Mr. Mark Maynard
501 NE Columbia Ace
PO Box 47
Boardman, Oregon 97818
Email: cid001@centurytel.net
Telephone: (541) 481-9454

Applicant’s Agent: Anderson Perry & Associates
Attention: Ms. Dana Kurtz
1901 N. Fir Street
La Grande, Oregon 97850
Email: dkurtz@andersonperry.com
Telephone: (541) 963-8309

Location: The project site is located in the Columbia River - mile 271.5 near Boardman, Oregon. The site is in Section 2, Township 4 North, Range 25 East. Latitude and Longitude: 45.86398 North, -119.655179 West

Waterway: Columbia River at river mile 271.5

Project Purpose: The applicant’s stated purpose is to reduce pump damage resulting from drawdown inside the wetwell at the River Pump Station to provide adequate water supply access for irrigators.

Project Description: The proposed project would install two new screens at the existing Columbia River Pump Station. The project would place 819 cubic yards of material in 3,184 square feet of the Columbia River. The northeast intake pipe assembly would be approximately 165 feet long, consisting of 63-inch diameter High-Density Poly-Ethylene (HDPE) pipe and 12-inch diameter HDPE air burst pipe with approximately 13 concrete ballasts. The southwest intake pipe assembly would be approximately 195 feet long, consisting of 63-inch diameter HDPE pipe and 12-inch diameter HDPE air burst pipe with approximately 15 concrete ballasts. Concrete ballasts will be 8 feet 6-inces long by 1-foot 9-inches wide by 7 feet 3-inches tall, each ballast would be 10.3 square feet and the intake tee screens would each be 304.5 square feet.

The screen and piping would be assembled and floated into place, the end that connects to the enclosure wall would be placed in the prefabricated intake connection guide, and the entire assembly would be submerged. Prior to placement of the pipres, two small sections of the river bottom are anticipated to be excavated, approximately 1 cubic yard of material, from the face of the existing structure to allow for placement of the two prefabricated intake connection guides. This excavation is anticipated to be hand-dug by a diver to limit sediment disturbance. Once in place on the river bottom, the concrete ballasts and prefabricated intake connection guide would secure the assembly in place, and a hole would be cut in the enclosure wall to create an opening from the new intake pipe to the pump station wetwell.

Mitigation: The applicant proposes to avoid and minimize impacts from the project by conducting the project within the applicable Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife work window, December 1 through March 31. By assembling the pipe in the upland the applicant is reducing the amount of work that will be occurring within the waterway. Areas for non-work-shift storage of equipment and vehicles, other than track-mounted vehicles, would be located at least 150 feet away from the Regulated Work Area. Prior to operating within 150 feet of the Regulated Work Area, equipment cleaning, maintenance, and refueling would be completed. Fuels and other potentially hazardous materials would be placed 150 feet or more from the Regulated Work Area. The applicant has provided a proposed mitigation plan to offset losses of waters of the U.S. that may result from the proposed project. To offset this impact, the applicant would add 900 square feet of willows and other plantings to an existing riparian habitat improvement project located approximately 2.6 miles southwest of the impact site.

Drawings: Nine (9) drawings are attached and labeled Corps No.: NWP-2017-280. Copies of this public notice, which have been mailed or otherwise physically distributed, feature project drawings in black and white. The electronic version features those drawings in color, which we think more accurately illustrates the proposed project. To access the electronic version of this public notice, go to the Portland District website at http://www.nwp.usace.army.mil/ and select Regulatory Branch Permit Information. At the Regulatory page select Regulatory Public Notices.

Additional Information: The existing Columbia River Pump Station operates with four screens, this project would be adding an additional two screens. 

Authority: The proposed project will be evaluated under the following:
Section 10, Rivers and Harbors Act 1899 (33 U.S.C. 403), for work in or affecting navigable waters of the United States.
Section 404, Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1344), for discharge of dredged or fill material into waters of the United States.

Clean Water Act Section 404(b)(1) Guidelines: The described discharge will be evaluated for compliance with guidelines promulgated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under authority of Section 404(b)(1) of the Clean Water Act. The 404(b)(1) Guidelines are the substantive criteria used in evaluating discharges of dredged or fill material into waters of the United States. Should a permit be issued, the Corps will evaluate the fill material source (i.e., borrow site) prior to the start of construction.

Water Quality Certification: Section 401 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1341) requires applicants to obtain a water quality certification for proposed discharges into waters of the United States. A permit for the described work will not be issued until certification has been issued or is waived from the certifying state. Attached is the state's notice for a water quality certification.

Endangered Species: Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) (16 U.S.C 1536) requires federal agencies to consult with the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and/or U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) on all actions that may affect a species listed (or proposed for listing) under the ESA as threatened or endangered or that may adversely modify designated critical habitat. The Corps’ preliminary review indicates the described activity may affect an endangered or threatened species or designated critical habitat. The Corps will has initiated consultation under Section 7 of the ESA. The Corps will complete the required consultation prior to finalizing a permit decision.

Essential Fish Habitat: Section 305(b)(2) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA) as amended (16 U.S.C 1855), requires Federal agencies to consult with the NMFS on all actions, or proposed actions, permitted, funded, or undertaken by the agency, that may adversely affect Essential Fish Habitat (EFH). The Corps’ preliminary review indicates the described activity would adversely affect EFH at the project location or in the vicinity. The Corps will (has) initiate(d) consultation under Section 305(b)(2) of the MSA. The Corps will complete the required consultation prior to finalizing a permit decision.

Historic Properties/Cultural Resources:
Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended (16 U.S.C. 470), requires Federal agencies to consult with the appropriate State and/or Tribal Historic Preservation Officer to take into account the effects of actions they undertake or permit on historic properties listed in or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. The Corps’ preliminary review indicates the described activity is not located on property registered or eligible for registration in the latest published version of the National Register of Historic Places. The proposed work is of such limited nature and extent that little likelihood exists for the proposed project to affect an unrecorded historic property or any other type of cultural resource.

This notice has been provided to the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), interested Native American Indian Tribes, and other interested parties. If you have information pertaining to cultural resources within the permit area, please provide this information to the Corps’ project manager identified at the end of this notice to assist in a complete evaluation of potential effects.

Public Hearing: Any person may request in writing within the comment period specified in this notice that a public hearing be held to consider this application. Requests for public hearings shall state with particularity the reasons for holding a public hearing.

Evaluation: The decision whether to issue a permit will be based on an evaluation of the probable impact, including cumulative impacts, of the described activity on the public interest. That decision will reflect the national concern for both protection and utilization of important resources. The benefit, which reasonably may be expected to accrue from the described activity, must be balanced against its reasonably foreseeable detriments. All factors, which may be relevant to the described activity will be considered including the cumulative effects thereof; among those are conservation, economics, aesthetics, general environmental concerns, wetlands, historic properties, fish and wildlife values, flood hazards, floodplain values, land use, navigation, shoreline erosion and accretion, recreation, water supply and conservation, water quality, energy needs, safety, food and fiber production, mineral needs, consideration of property ownership and, in general, the needs and welfare of the people.

PUBLIC NOTICE
Application for Permit

Issue Date: August 17, 2017
Expiration Date: September 15, 2017
US Army Corps of Engineers No: NWP-2017-280
Oregon Department of State Lands No: 60345-RF

30-Day Notice

Interested parties are hereby notified the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Portland District (Corps) has received an application for a Department of the Army permit for certain work in waters of the United States, as described below and shown on the attached plans. The Corps is soliciting comments on the proposed work.

Applicant:
Columbia Improvement District
Attention: Mr. Mark Maynard
501 NE Columbia Ace
PO Box 47
Boardman, Oregon 97818
Email: cid001@centurytel.net
Telephone: (541) 481-9454

Applicant’s Agent: Anderson Perry & Associates
Attention: Ms. Dana Kurtz
1901 N. Fir Street
La Grande, Oregon 97850
Email: dkurtz@andersonperry.com
Telephone: (541) 963-8309

Location: The project site is located in the Columbia River - mile 271.5 near Boardman, Oregon. The site is in Section 2, Township 4 North, Range 25 East. Latitude and Longitude: 45.86398 North, -119.655179 West

Waterway: Columbia River at river mile 271.5

Project Purpose: The applicant’s stated purpose is to reduce pump damage resulting from drawdown inside the wetwell at the River Pump Station to provide adequate water supply access for irrigators.

Project Description: The proposed project would install two new screens at the existing Columbia River Pump Station. The project would place 819 cubic yards of material in 3,184 square feet of the Columbia River. The northeast intake pipe assembly would be approximately 165 feet long, consisting of 63-inch diameter High-Density Poly-Ethylene (HDPE) pipe and 12-inch diameter HDPE air burst pipe with approximately 13 concrete ballasts. The southwest intake pipe assembly would be approximately 195 feet long, consisting of 63-inch diameter HDPE pipe and 12-inch diameter HDPE air burst pipe with approximately 15 concrete ballasts. Concrete ballasts will be 8 feet 6-inces long by 1-foot 9-inches wide by 7 feet 3-inches tall, each ballast would be 10.3 square feet and the intake tee screens would each be 304.5 square feet.

The screen and piping would be assembled and floated into place, the end that connects to the enclosure wall would be placed in the prefabricated intake connection guide, and the entire assembly would be submerged. Prior to placement of the pipres, two small sections of the river bottom are anticipated to be excavated, approximately 1 cubic yard of material, from the face of the existing structure to allow for placement of the two prefabricated intake connection guides. This excavation is anticipated to be hand-dug by a diver to limit sediment disturbance. Once in place on the river bottom, the concrete ballasts and prefabricated intake connection guide would secure the assembly in place, and a hole would be cut in the enclosure wall to create an opening from the new intake pipe to the pump station wetwell.

Mitigation: The applicant proposes to avoid and minimize impacts from the project by conducting the project within the applicable Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife work window, December 1 through March 31. By assembling the pipe in the upland the applicant is reducing the amount of work that will be occurring within the waterway. Areas for non-work-shift storage of equipment and vehicles, other than track-mounted vehicles, would be located at least 150 feet away from the Regulated Work Area. Prior to operating within 150 feet of the Regulated Work Area, equipment cleaning, maintenance, and refueling would be completed. Fuels and other potentially hazardous materials would be placed 150 feet or more from the Regulated Work Area. The applicant has provided a proposed mitigation plan to offset losses of waters of the U.S. that may result from the proposed project. To offset this impact, the applicant would add 900 square feet of willows and other plantings to an existing riparian habitat improvement project located approximately 2.6 miles southwest of the impact site.

Drawings: Nine (9) drawings are attached and labeled Corps No.: NWP-2017-280. Copies of this public notice, which have been mailed or otherwise physically distributed, feature project drawings in black and white. The electronic version features those drawings in color, which we think more accurately illustrates the proposed project. To access the electronic version of this public notice, go to the Portland District website at http://www.nwp.usace.army.mil/ and select Regulatory Branch Permit Information. At the Regulatory page select Regulatory Public Notices.

Additional Information: The existing Columbia River Pump Station operates with four screens, this project would be adding an additional two screens. 

Authority: The proposed project will be evaluated under the following:
Section 10, Rivers and Harbors Act 1899 (33 U.S.C. 403), for work in or affecting navigable waters of the United States.
Section 404, Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1344), for discharge of dredged or fill material into waters of the United States.

Clean Water Act Section 404(b)(1) Guidelines: The described discharge will be evaluated for compliance with guidelines promulgated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under authority of Section 404(b)(1) of the Clean Water Act. The 404(b)(1) Guidelines are the substantive criteria used in evaluating discharges of dredged or fill material into waters of the United States. Should a permit be issued, the Corps will evaluate the fill material source (i.e., borrow site) prior to the start of construction.

Water Quality Certification: Section 401 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1341) requires applicants to obtain a water quality certification for proposed discharges into waters of the United States. A permit for the described work will not be issued until certification has been issued or is waived from the certifying state. Attached is the state's notice for a water quality certification.

Endangered Species: Section 7 of the Endangered Species Act (ESA) (16 U.S.C 1536) requires federal agencies to consult with the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) and/or U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) on all actions that may affect a species listed (or proposed for listing) under the ESA as threatened or endangered or that may adversely modify designated critical habitat. The Corps’ preliminary review indicates the described activity may affect an endangered or threatened species or designated critical habitat. The Corps will has initiated consultation under Section 7 of the ESA. The Corps will complete the required consultation prior to finalizing a permit decision.

Essential Fish Habitat: Section 305(b)(2) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act (MSA) as amended (16 U.S.C 1855), requires Federal agencies to consult with the NMFS on all actions, or proposed actions, permitted, funded, or undertaken by the agency, that may adversely affect Essential Fish Habitat (EFH). The Corps’ preliminary review indicates the described activity would adversely affect EFH at the project location or in the vicinity. The Corps will (has) initiate(d) consultation under Section 305(b)(2) of the MSA. The Corps will complete the required consultation prior to finalizing a permit decision.

Historic Properties/Cultural Resources:
Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, as amended (16 U.S.C. 470), requires Federal agencies to consult with the appropriate State and/or Tribal Historic Preservation Officer to take into account the effects of actions they undertake or permit on historic properties listed in or eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. The Corps’ preliminary review indicates the described activity is not located on property registered or eligible for registration in the latest published version of the National Register of Historic Places. The proposed work is of such limited nature and extent that little likelihood exists for the proposed project to affect an unrecorded historic property or any other type of cultural resource.

This notice has been provided to the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO), interested Native American Indian Tribes, and other interested parties. If you have information pertaining to cultural resources within the permit area, please provide this information to the Corps’ project manager identified at the end of this notice to assist in a complete evaluation of potential effects.

Evaluation: The decision whether to issue a permit will be based on an evaluation of the probable impact, including cumulative impacts, of the described activity on the public interest. That decision will reflect the national concern for both protection and utilization of important resources. The benefit, which reasonably may be expected to accrue from the described activity, must be balanced against its reasonably foreseeable detriments. All factors, which may be relevant to the described activity will be considered including the cumulative effects thereof; among those are conservation, economics, aesthetics, general environmental concerns, wetlands, historic properties, fish and wildlife values, flood hazards, floodplain values, land use, navigation, shoreline erosion and accretion, recreation, water supply and conservation, water quality, energy needs, safety, food and fiber production, mineral needs, consideration of property ownership and, in general, the needs and welfare of the people.
