The basic purpose of this work is to develop the property for a future commercial wholesale store.  There are no special aquatic sites on the project. A water dependency determination is not necessary since no special aquatic sites are located within the project site.

The overall purpose of this work is to provide additional commercial wholesale in the northern sector of Oklahoma City to support ongoing and projected future residential and commercial development.  This project proposes to meet existing demand for stores with frontage and access along a main arterial roadway, the John Kilpatrick Turnpike service road.

The applicant proposes to permanently impact 950 lf of ephemeral stream channel.  The proposed project would place 350 lf of unnamed tributary to Chisholm Creek (ES-1) and 600 lf of unnamed tributary to Chisholm Creek (ES-2) into RCBs beneath the proposed parking lot.  Approximately 200 cys of concrete material would be discharged in waters of the United States.
