This Public Notice announces the Section 408 review of the Port of Longview Berth 4 Demolition Project.
Portland District is reviewing the Port of Longview’s Berth 4 Demolition project. The Port of Longview proposes to demolish seven existing structures at Berth 4 in Longview, Washington. The upland area at Berth 4 contains a grain elevator and silo complex. After demolition is complete a low-lying portion of the site located waterward of the silo complex will be filled to bring the area up to grade. Grade improvements will also include replacing an existing access road, improvements to site stormwater management and limited resurfacing.
Alteration of a federally authorized project: This proposed project would modify a federal flood protection system and therefore require authorization from the Corps, pursuant to 33 USC 408 (Section 408). Section 408 provides authority to the Secretary of the Army to grant permission for the alteration or modification of Corps federal civil works projects when, in the judgment of the Secretary, such alteration or modification will not be injurious to the public interest and will not impair the usefulness of the project.
Consideration of Comments: The Corps is soliciting comments specific to this project from the public, federal, state and local agencies and officials, and other interested parties. Comments will be considered in determining whether it would be in the public interest to proceed with this action.
All comments received will become part of the official record and are subject to public release under the Freedom of Information Act including any personally identifiable information such as names, phone numbers, and addresses.
Comments: Interested parties may submit, in writing, any comments directed specifically to this proposal and not to other regulatory processes administered by the Corps or other government agencies pertaining to the Port of Longview’s Berth 4 Demolition project.
