Public Scoping Notice

The Cordova Ranger District is reviewing a proposal (Port Gravina Quarry Project) from Chugach Alaska Corporation (CAC) to access and develop the subsurface mineral estate near Secret Cove in Port Gravina. The Chugach National Forest is the steward of the surface estate and Chugach Alaska Corporation owns the subsurface mineral estate and has a right to access and develop the mineral estate.

The Forest Service will evaluate the proposed action and use of the surface estate at the project location, including effects on the environment. The Forest Service will determine whether the operations are consistent with the Chugach Forest Land and Resource Management Plan. If the proposed operating plan is not consistent with the Forest Plan, the proposed action may include a Forest Plan amendment.

The operating plan includes construction and maintenance of an access road, two stone quarry sites and two work pads, a temporary dock for project development, a permanent dock for operations, a lay down area, and a camp (located on adjacent CAC lands). Approximately 80 acres of National Forest System surface lands could be directly affected by this project.

The project would occur on lands designated in the Forest Plan as an Exxon Valdez oil spill Acquired Lands Management Area (221). These lands are also within the Fidalgo-Gravina Inventoried Roadless Area. The Forest Service will evaluate the effects of the proposal on surface lands it manages and consider cumulative effects for the entire proposal. CAC will apply to other agencies for necessary permits outside Forest Service authority.

More detailed information, including maps and the proposed operating plan, is posted on the Chugach National Forest website at:
