The applicant proposes to discharge approximately 1,323 cys of earthen fill material into 0.82 acre of one wetland (W1) and 108 cys of earthen fill material into 388 linear feet of an unnamed tributary of Rabb Creek (S4) for the construction of the proposed dam, including overflow pipe and outfall structure. The applicant also proposes to excavate two ponds (P1: 1,033 cubic yards, 0.64 acre; P2: 888 cubic yards, 0.55 acre) and three streams (S1 upper reach: 242 cubic yards, 1,500 linear feet; S2: 16 cubic yards, 80 linear feet; S3: 48 cubic yards, 256 linear feet). The proposed discharge for the dam construction and excavation will result in the permanent inundation of two ponds (P1: 0.64 acre; P2: 0.55 acre), three unnamed tributaries of Rabb Creek (S1 upper and lower reaches: 3,567 linear feet; S2: 80 linear feet, S3: 256 linear feet), and one wetland (W2: 1.00 acre). The applicant proposes to use native earthen material and conventional earthwork methods and equipment to complete the construction. The completed dam, as proposed, would have a 707.00 normal pool elevation and be 33.8 surface acres.
