Carrie Barnes, 412 S. Union Street, Traverse City, has applied to EGLE for a permit under authority of Part 301, Inland Lakes and Streams and Part 303, Wetlands Protection of the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act, 1994 PA 451, as amended (NREPA), under submission number HP6-WPNY-PHWPX. The applicant proposes to build an inland boat house, boat basin and entrance channel, entirely within available uplands, except for one small corner portion of the boat house that crosses into the adjacent wetland area. Approximately 17 cubic yards of clean fill will be discharged into 300 square feet of wetlands to make this corner area suitable for boathouse excavation (footing protection). Dredge approximately 507 cubic yards of native material from a 7,432 square foot area of existing lake bottom, lakeward of the ordinary high water mark of Long Lake, to construct an entrance channel to navigate into the inland boathouse area. Construct an approximately 40-foot-long by 5-foot-wide boardwalk, supported by helical piers, across a portion of the inland wetland area. Construct approximately 84 square feet of boardwalk-style ramp over wetlands, also supported by helical piers. To voluntarily compensate for constructing the Part 301 boathouse entrance channel, remove an existing approximately 255-foot long, vertical sheet pile seawall along the shoreline and replace it with diverse Michigan native plantings using bioengineering techniques. The project is located in T27N, R12W, Section 34, Twp, Grand Traverse Co.
