  • 2004-01377-WMS (Sawyer County, WI) Wisconsin Department of Transportation - Bureau of Aeronautics Project

    Expiration date: 4/25/2019

    LETTER OF PERMISSION: A Department of the Army permit issued to Sawyer County in 2013 authorized discharges of fill material in 4.29 acres of wetlands adjacent to a tributary to the Namakagon River for improvements at Sawyer County Airport. The project included the construction of a parallel taxiway, relocation of Airport Road, and the installation of an Instrument Landing System (ILS) to facilitate safe aircraft landing during inclement weather. The project was constructed; however, subsequent testing conducted by the Federal Aviation Administration failed to commission part of the ILS due to repeatability issues during flight checks. Specifically, the Glide Slope (GS) that provides electronic vertical approach guidance during aircraft landing appears to be compromised due to water and vegetation in a portion of the GS ground plane. Therefore, the applicant proposes to fill approximately 3.23 acres of wetlands in the GS ground plane to allow the ILS function as designed.
