  • SPA-2013-00205 - BP America Cox Canyon Pipeline Protection Project

    Expiration date: 8/16/2013

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Albuquerque District, (Corps) is evaluating a permit application from BP America to construct an erosion control project for an existing pipeline crossing. The proposed project involves placing filter fabric, cobble and chain link fencing over the cobble to protect two natural gas pipelines. One of the pipelines has been exposed by downcutting (erosion) within the streambed, and the other adjacent pipeline is now close to the surface. Materials will cover an area approximately 115 feet long by 40 feet wide, and the material will raise the bottom elevation of the streambed 16 inches upstream, increasing to 30 inches downstream. This will result in permanent impacts to approximately 4,600 square feet of waters of the United States within Cox Canyon. The purpose of this public notice is to inform interested parties of the project and to solicit comments.
