The overall purpose is to construct an industrial development.  The project is not a water dependent activity.  The basic purpose and need of the proposed action is to utilize industrial-zoned property to construct a 230,000 square foot industrial structure.  The applicant’s preference is to promote the continued management with the south adjoining industrial park.

The applicant proposes to place on-site excavated soil within 1,011 lf of unnamed tributary that bisects the permit area, as well as 2 associated emergent wetlands (0.042 ac).  The placement of on-site soil would serve to create a contiguous area of developable property for the industrial construction site.  The excavated material would be used to grade and connect the developable property.  The fill material would be excavated from the relocated stream channel and floodplain area at the back of the property, which may consist of gravel, sand, silt, loam, and clay.  The project would require the use of various conventional earth moving equipment for construction and excavation.
