Fourche Creek Delineation and Permitting
PMI provided a wetland and stream delineation along a portion of Fourche Creek for a new boat launch at Benny Craig Park. The delineation was used to calculate impacts to jurisdictional waters and apply for a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Nationwide Permit for boat ramps. PMI corresponded with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service concerning threatened and endangered species and with the Arkansas Historic Preservations Program concerning cultural resources. The City of Little Rock Parks and Recreation was issued a USACE Nationwide Permit to construct the ramp. The boat launch will be used as the western gateway into the Fourche Creek Bottoms and start of a 4.4-mile urban water trail for canoeist, kayakers, and other outdoor enthusiasts.
