The applicant proposes to construct a residential development known as Hickory Creek on approximately 45 acres that has been cleared and graded.
The construction activity involved the redistribution of fill material into approximately 753 linear feet of unnamed tributary of Coal Creek and the placement of fill material into 1.13 acres of emergent wetland prior to DA authorization.  The intermittent stream channel has been relocated to the northern property boundary and 0.127 acres of emergent wetland has been permanently filled.  Approximately 1.003 acres of on channel emergent wetland has been converted into a lentic waterbody of approximately 1.010 acres to meet stormwater management requirements.  The riparian area surrounding the impacted aquatic resources has been removed.
