 The applicant proposes to place approximately 53,563 cys of native fill material into an unnamed tributary to Deer Creek below its OHWM, equating to approximately 0.478 acre in two proximate locations, 0.049 acre comprising 268 If of ephemeral steam impacts, and 5.304 acre of permanent impacts to the existing 25.11 acre stormwater retention impoundment, partially filling it. Partially filling the existing stormwater retention impoundment would account for approximately 91% of all fill placed into the aquatic environment for this project. The fill material would be acquired from on-site excavation, expanding the existing impoundment southerly into an area paralleling and on the east side of the proposed runway extension. Additionally, the applicant proposes constructing a 12- by 6-foot reinforced concrete box culvert to convey ephemeral and upland drainage into the newly expanded stormwater retention impoundment. The box culvert would be overlain by the proposed new runway.
