DCP Midstream Seeks Army Corps Permit
Public comments invited

The public comment period is open until the end of February on the request of DCP Midstream Partners for permits from the Army Corps of Engineers to place fill material in a wetland in order to develop a propane storage tank and off-loading facility at Mack Point in Searsport.

The project includes installing an above-ground pipeline to the existing Mack Point dry cargo terminal pier. DCP wants to add fill material below the high water mark of a stream that drains into Long Cove and in adjacent freshwater wetlands. The proposed project would impact approximately two acres of wetland and stream bed. DCP proposes to offset wetland impacts by funding a nearby stream restoration project (replacing an undersized culvert) and contributing mitigation funds to Maine's Natural Resources Conservation Fund.

DCP Midstream filed an application for the federal permits as required by the Clean Water Act, which regulates the discharge or fill of material in United States waters, including wetlands; and the Rivers and Harbors Act, which regulates work that affects navigable waters in the United States.

The public notice can be viewed on the Corps website at - select "regulatory/permitting" and then "weekly public notices."

Public comments referencing the permit request (File # NAE-2010-02347) should be forwarded no later than Wednesday, February 29, to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New England District, Maine Project Office (ATTN: Jay Clement), 675 Western Ave., #3, Manchester, ME 04351. Additional information is available from Permit Project Manager Jay Clement at 623-8367, extension 1, or by email to

It's important to listen to the maJority. A small minority controlling the outcome does not make a democracy
