Virginia Water Protection (VWP) Permits

comment Period  regional Office  contact  Location  Facility  Project Description
March 31, 2020 to April 30, 2020 Piedmont Regional Office Bryan Jones Hanover County Wegmans Distribution Center

Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. has applied for a new permit for the Wegmans Distribution Center. The project site is located south of Ashcake Road (Route 657), northwest of Sliding Hill Road (Route 656), and east of Egypt Road (Route 741) in Hanover County, Virginia. The permit will allow the applicant to fill a surface water wetland to construct a regional grocery distribution center. The proposed activity would affect 5.89 acres of palustrine forested wetland and 0.23 acre of palustrine emergent wetland. The activity proposed in the permit will affect wetlands that drain to Totopotomoy Creek, Kersey Creek, and Campbell Creek in the Pamunkey River watershed. A watershed is the land area drained by a river and its incoming streams. To compensate for the affected area, the applicant would provide compensation for permanent impacts to wetlands authorized by this permit through the purchase of 12.01 wetland mitigation bank credits from a mitigation bank in the same or adjacent watershed. If sufficient wetland mitigation bank credits are not available, the permit allows the permittee to purchase credits from an in-lieu-fee fund. The DEQ’s preliminary decision is to issue the permit.
