Abstract: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Omaha District (Corps) proposes to restore aquatic habitat in an old river chute along the right, or west, bank of the Missouri River at Hole-in-the-Rock near river mile (RM) 706. The proposed project site is located in Section 36, Township 26 North, Range 9 East and Section 1, Township 25 North, Range 9 East approximately 5 miles north of Macy in Thurston County, Nebraska (Appendix A, Exhibit 1 ). The entire site is on Nebraska land within the Omaha Indian Reservation. The proposed project is part of the Missouri River Bank Stabilization and Navigation Fish and Wildlife Mitigation Project and would consist of creating a backwater channel. Specifically, the existing outlet channel to the river has accumulated sediment in the last 20 to 30 years and would be excavated to ensure adequate connectivity to the Missouri River. An outlet to the Missouri River would be established by removing approximately 7,200 tons of stone from 450 linear feet of an existing stone revetment. The backwater channel would be excavated as shown on Exhibits 3, 5, and 6 in Appendix A. The excavated soil would either be placed in the Missouri River to be reclaimed by the river system or hauled offsite to be disposed of in approved upland areas.
