Point Judith East Jetty
The East Jetty of the Point Judith Harbor of Refuge in Rhode Island is just one of many projects presented to small businesses during an Industry Day event held June 13 in Concord, Mass. The purpose of this forum was to inform the small business industry of New England District’s upcoming stone work projects, specification requirements and to seek information from the industry that can be valuable in planning the strategy of restoring navigation protection structures within the Corps’ New England District area of responsibility. Upcoming breakwater/jetty repair work will involve transportation of replacement stone to the repair areas in the three listed states. Access to the structures may be by land or in some cases only by water. The combined cost of all the projects is anticipated to be about $60 million. The repair projects are located in Bridgeport Harbor and New Haven Harbor in Connecticut; Point Judith Harbor, Block Island Harbor of Refuge, and Sakonnet Harbor in Rhode Island; and Menemsha Harbor, Nantucket Harbor, Newburyport Harbor, Green Harbor, and Rockport Harbor in Massachusetts.

    The Pawcatuck River Coastal Storm Risk Management Feasibility Study

       This proposed plan is presented  to facilitate public involvement in the review and commenting on the remedy selection process for the Nantucket Memorial Airport (NMA) Formerly Used Defense Site (FUDS.) 
        The Army Corps of Engineers is proposing a No Action under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act for the Munitions Response Site-1, Project Number D01MA049901 at NMA located on Nantucket Island, MA.  The proposal was prepared using the Guide to Preparing Superfund Proposed Plans, Records of Decision, and Other Remedy Selection Decision Documents (USEPA, 1999).
        The final decision for NMA Site-1 site will be made after reviewing and considering all information submitted during the public comment period. The proposed decision may be modified based on new information or public comments. The public is encouraged to review and comment on the proposed plan.
        The FUDS program addresses the potential explosives safety, health, and environmental issues resulting from past munitions use at former defense sites under the Department of Defense (DoD) Military Munitions Response Program, established by the U.S. Congress under the Defense Environmental Restoration Program.  
        FUDS only applies to properties that transferred from DoD before October 17, 1986 and the first priority of USACE is the protection of human health, safety, and the environment. 
        The Army is the executive agent for the FUDS Program, and USACE is the lead agency for investigation/reporting and remedial decision-making at this munitions site with regulatory support provided by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP).
