Abstract:

The Proposed Action is to combine soft and hard stabilization technologies to minimize subsequent erosion to the St. Jones River banking along Dover AFB property. The St. Jones River traverses to the west of the former Eagle Heights MFH area, which has been recently privatized. The proposed action would provide the approximately 3,000 linear feet of banking with stabilization. Current conditions have shown significant erosion due to minimal or no vegetation along the bank. The proposed action includes bank stabilization to be funded by Dover AFB and the installation of a walking path to be funded by Kent County officials in conjunction with the completion of the Dover AFB bank stabilization project. Dover AFB permit applications will reference the installation of a walking path to assist Kent County in not requiring them to obtain the same series of permits. The No Action Alternative and an alternative consisting of only soft stabilization technologies were also analyzed in this environmental assessment.
