CONCORD, Mass. --
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District received a permit application to conduct work in waters of the United States from Greystone Enterprises LLC for proposed work in the Woonasquatucket River at Goldsmith Street in Johnston, Rhode Island.
The proposed work involves approximately 700 linear feet of bank stabilization. The project proposes the temporary discharge of crushed rock in approximately 7,672 square feet below Ordinary High Water (OHW) for a temporary construction access path, and the installation of a temporary cofferdam in approximately 816 square feet below OHW.
