Interested parties are hereby notified that an application has been received for a Department of the Army (DA) permit for certain work in waters of the United States as described below and shown on the attached drawings.
The applicant proposes to rebuild the Kuualii Fishpond rock wall, dredge sand infill from the fishpond, and restore the sand beach fronting the fishpond with the dredged sand. The rock wall and beach were damaged by the March 11, 2011 tsunami generated by a massive earthquake off the coast of Japan. Following the tsunami, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) authorized emergency repairs to stabilize the breach in the beach from further erosion while a permanent restoration plan was developed. The currently proposed work would return the fishpond to its pre-tsunami condition.
