Floating community boat slip and riprap bank stabilization
Jagger Branch mile 1.0, left bank, Tennessee River mile 351.6, right bank, Guntersville Reservoir, Marshall County, Alabama
DescriptionThe proposed work would consist of the construction of a floating covered community boat slip for the Shady Acres Subdivision on Lot No. 9 within the development. The facility would extend approximately 178 feet lakeward from the normal summer pool elevation 595.0. It would be approximately 65 feet wide and would accommodate 20 boats.
The floating structure would be constructed of pressurized treated lumber and enameled metal for siding and roof, supported by encapsulated flotation. The bank will be stabilized with riprap along 235 feet of shoreline to prevent further erosion. (For more information, including a map and project illustration, see the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Public Notice.)
