On March 13, 2012, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps) Albuquerque District cited the Fort Carson Army Garrison for violation of Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (CWA) for the unauthorized discharge of dredged/fill material into waters of the U.S. associated with the relocation of approximately 700 linear feet (LF) of the I-Ditch stream channel. Subsequently, at the direction of the Corps, Fort Carson installed appropriate erosion control mechanisms to prevent further erosion of the I-Ditch channel. On August 28, 2012, Fort Carson submitted an after-the-fact permit application to the Corps for the realignment and permanent stabilization of the I-Ditch channel. Details of the proposed project are provided in this public notice and in the attached maps and drawings. The purpose of this public notice is to inform interested parties of the project and to solicit comments.
