PURPOSE:  The purpose of these public notices are to inform you of a proposal for work in which you might be interested and to solicit your comments and information to better enable us to make a reasonable decision on factors affecting the public interest.

SECTION 10: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is directed by Congress through Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act of 1899 (33 USC 403) to regulate all work or structures in or affecting the course, condition, or capacity of navigable waters of the United States.  The intent of this law is to protect the navigable capacity of waters important to interstate commerce.

SECTION 404: The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is directed by Congress through Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 USC 1344) to regulate the discharges of dredged and fill material into all waters of the United States.  These waters include lakes, rivers, streams, mudflats, sandflats, sloughs, wet meadows, natural ponds, and wetlands adjacent to other waters.  The intent of the law is to protect these waters from the indiscriminate discharge of material capable of causing pollution and to restore and maintain their chemical, physical, and biological integrity.

 cubic yards (cys), ordinary high water mark (OHWM), acre (ac), liner feet (lf)


The applicant’s proposal requires the placement of fill material (6,308 cys) into 3.34 ac of wetlands (1.94 ac of emergent wetlands, 1.40 ac of forested wetland) for commercial development, stormwater management basin, and parking areas; and 61 lf of intermittent stream for parking areas. The applicant has proposed the placement of approximately 1,533 cys of clay into Wetland 1; 484 cys of clay into Wetland 2; 2,500 cys into Wetland 3; 1,775 cys of clay into Wetland 9; and 16 cys of clay into Intermittent Stream 2. This project will require bulldozers, scrapers, front-end loaders, and trucks.


The project includes the avoidance of surface waters, including 1.01 acres of wetlands and 2,278 linear feet of intermittent stream. The applicant proposes to minimize impacts to jurisdictional waters through the construction of an offline wetland detention basin.


Preservation of existing riparian corridors and abutting wetlands within an approximate 10-acre preserved corridor located east of the project area. For unavoidable impacts to jurisdictional water, the applicant proposes to purchase mitigation credits from an approved provider.
