Public comment period open for Corps to perform bank stabilization work

Published June 28, 2013
ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, has prepared a Section 404 evaluation, in compliance with the Clean Water Act, in order to perform streambank stabilization work on the Eau Galle River, downstream of the Eau Galle Dam in Spring Valley, Wis.

The public notice is available for public comments. The notice and supporting documents are posted to the website below. The comment period expires July 28.

Approximately 440 feet of the right descending bank immediately downstream of the Eau Galle Dam spillway has eroded as a result of high flows and repairs to the bank are needed to return the area to a pre-flood condition. If the bank is not repaired, it will continue to erode, which will affect the ability to maintain the project as designed.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, serves the American public in the areas of environmental enhancement, navigation, flood damage reduction, water and wetlands regulation, recreation sites and disaster response. It contributes around $175 million to the five-state district economy. The 700 employees work at more than 40 sites in five upper-Midwest states. For more information, see www.mvp.usace.army.mil.
