Public Notice: PROPOSED DISCHARGE OF DREDGED OR FILL MATERIAL TO FREMONT LAKE

The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ) has received a request from Jorgensen Associates P.C. on behalf of David Bell for State certification of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Regional General Permit 9202-06, for discharge of dredged or fill material to Fremont Lake near Pinedale, Wyoming. The purpose of the project is to extend an existing dock. Fremont Lake is designated a Class 1 water where point source discharges are prohibited except for storm water and construction related discharges. This certification will require meeting the provisions in Chapter 1, Section 7(b) of the WDEQ Water Quality Rules and Regulations, which allows these discharges under certain circumstances.

Proposed activities include construction of wave break that will also serve as the anchor for the dock extension. To construct the wave break will require the placement and/or redistribution of approximately 50 cubic yards of rock.

Requests for information about the proposed water quality certification should be directed to Eric Hargett by email (eric.hargett@wyo.gov) or phone (307-777-6701). Comments must be addressed to Eric Hargett, Wyoming DEQ/WQD, 200 W. 17th Street – 4TH floor, Cheyenne, WY, 82002, and be postmarked on or before 5:00 p.m. on November 27, 2020 to be considered. Phone or email comments will not be accepted. Para español, visite deq.wyoming.gov.
