The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District received a permit application to conduct work in waters of the United States from Knollwood Beach Association Inc.
for proposed work in waters of the Long Island Sound in Old Saybrook, Connecticut.

The proposed project involves work in the vicinity of the Maple Avenue and Atlantic Avenue intersection in Old Saybrook. The project includes after-the-fact retention and maintenance of sand places as beach nourishment in 2018 below the high tide line over an area of approximately 3,000 square feet without a valid permit.

proposed activity. The public notice with more detailed information is available for review on the District website at https://www.nae.usace.army.mil/Missions/PublicNotices, file # NAE-2007-01330.
