USACE seeks comments on proposed work in freshwater wetlands in New Haven, Conn.

Published June 15, 2023

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District received a permit application to conduct work in waters of the United States from Yale University for proposed work in freshwater wetlands at 200 Conrad Drive in New Haven, Conn.

The proposed work involves the placement of fill in freshwater wetlands in order to restore the Yale Golf Course to its original design. Work would involve the restoration of bunkers and green complexes, drainage improvements, the maintenance of existing tees and construction of new tees, restoration of turf and vegetation management. A temporary haul road would be installed during construction to gain access to the site and minimize construction traffic on local roads.

USACE is soliciting comments from members of the public; federal, state and local agencies; American Indian Tribes; and other interested parties to consider and evaluate the impacts of this 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-2022- 00115.

Public comments on this proposed work should be forwarded no later than July 13, 2023, to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, Attn: Jana Jacobson, Regulatory Division, 696 Virginia Road, Concord, MA 01742 or by email to jana.l.jacobson@usace.army.mil.
