The proposed project is on Fort Gibson Lake, in Section 17, Township 17 North, Range 19 East, Wagoner County, Oklahoma. The project site can be found on the Wagoner East, Oklahoma 7.5 Minute USGS Quadrangle map at North Latitude 35.95551 and West Longitude 95.30757.

The basic purpose of this work is to provide boaters access to the water.

The overall purpose of this work is to provide the public with readily available lakeside docking opportunities for lake access and boat storage in the Long Bay area of Fort Gibson Lake.

The proposed work includes the development of approximately 2,055 linear feet of jetties (12 feet wide at the top), encompassing a footprint of approximately 1.04 acres and approximately 13,776 cubic yards of fill material. Additionally, the proposed work would include the dredging/excavation of approximately 5.83 acres in the vicinity of the jetties, encompassing the removal of approximately 52,800 cubic yards of material. The applicant proposes utilizing bricks, concrete, rock, and soil for jetty construction. Capping/cladding of the new jetty surface, with rock, would be performed as the new jetties are constructed. All work would be performed using conventional earthmoving equipment, including excavator(s) and/or dredge(s). Dredged material unsuitable for jetty construction would be placed in uplands. The return water from upland contained disposal areas is administratively defined as a discharge of dredged material. The quality of the return water is controlled by ODEQ through the Section 401 Water Quality Certification procedures.
