A detailed description and plans of the applicant's activity are enclosed to assist in your review.
The decision whether to issue a permit will be based on an evaluation of the probable impact,
including cumulative impacts, of the proposed activity on the public interest. That decision will
reflect the national concern for both protection and utilization of important resources. The benefits
which reasonably may be expected to accrue from the proposal must be balanced against its
reasonably foreseeable detriments. All factors which may be relevant to the proposal will be
considered including the cumulative effects thereof; among those are conservation, economics,
aesthetics, general environmental concerns, wetlands, historic properties, fish and wildlife values,
floodplain values, land use, navigation, shore 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. The
decision of whether to issue a Department of the Army Permit for placement of the dredged material
at an upland facility and the Historic Area Remediation Site (HARS) will also be based on whether
the material meets the requirements of applicable implementing regulations. This activity is also
being evaluated to determine that the proposed placement of dredged material will not
unreasonably degrade or endanger human health, welfare or amenities, the marine environment,
ecological systems or economic potentialities.
