The proposed activity would affect some existing stream channels and extend 3 pipe crossings, permanently impacting 0.144 acre (1,650 LF) of perennial and intermittent streams and 0.671 acre of PFO and PEM wetland types. Temporary impact areas are to be restored to the preconstruction grades.

The activity proposed in the permit will affect streams leading to the South River in the Mattaponi watershed. A watershed is the land area drained by a river and its incoming streams. To compensate for the affected area, the applicant will purchase (58,150 SF) 1.34 wetland credits from the Mattaponi Wetland Mitigation Bank in Caroline County, Virginia. DEQ’s preliminary decision is to issue the permit.
