  • SPN - CMT Period Extension for the Clean Water Act Proposed Rule for Definition of Waters of the U.S.

    Expiration date: 10/20/2014

    On April 21, 2014, the USEPA and the Corps of Engineers (Corps) published for public comment a proposed rule defining the scope of waters protected under the Clean Water Act (CWA), in light of the U.S. Supreme Court cases in U.S. v. Riverside Bayview, Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (SWANCC), and Rapanos v. United States (Rapanos). The proposed rule was developed to enhance protection for the nation’s public health and aquatic resources, and increase CWA program predictability and consistency by increasing clarity as to the scope of “waters of the United States” protected under the Act.

DOBOR proposes to excavate sand from the upper beaches east of the harbor to place at three locations west of the harbor and to repair the eroded west breakwater to the originally constructed specifications. DOBOR is also proposing to conduct a yearly sand bypass to continue to address the erosion west of the harbor. The purpose of the proposed action is to reduce siltation of the harbor entrance and repair the eroded shoreline and shoreline structure.
