Application ID: 1-4799-00023/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Project is Located: Brookhaven, Suffolk County
Project Description:
The US Army Corps of Engineers seeks a modification to the Water Quality Certification for the Fire Island to Montauk Point Breach Contingency Plan to extend the area covered by the Breach Contingency Plan to include the barrier islands east of Fire Island (east of Moriches Inlet) to the area of the Southampton mainland just west of Halsey Neck Lane. This extended area would include the 15-mile long barrier island containing Westhampton and Tiana beaches and the 4-mile segment which extends east of Shinnecock Inlet to the Southampton mainland.  These additional areas were previously examined and considered under the Breach Contingency Plan study and received a full review under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) but were not included in the Water Quality Certification which was ultimately issued.  No changes to the components of the Breach Contingency Plan would occur.  The Breach Contingency Plan would continue to authorize the filling and closing of breaches in the barrier islands, caused by coastal storms, utilizing a design template of a 150-foot wide sand berm and 9-foot high dune constructed between the Atlantic Ocean and the back bay blending into existing topography.  Potential sand sources would continue to be from a variety of authorized sources including upland sources, strategic stockpiles, existing channel and harbor dredging operations or offshore borrow areas.
