The project consists of the construction of a residential development and the site is located north of U.S. Route 360 (Hull Street Road) and west of State Route 667 (Otterdale Road) in Chesterfield County. The proposed permit modification will allow the permittee to fill wetlands and stream bed in order to construct associated roads and utility infrastructure and will add a new section to the development plan. The requested modification adds 0.06 acre of permanent forested wetland impact, adds the permanent conversion of no more than 0.02 acre of forested wetland to emergent wetland, and adds 1,877 linear feet of permanent stream bed impacts. The request also adds temporary impacts to 99 linear feet of stream bed. Additionally, a request has also been made to change a stream classification from intermittent stream to ephemeral stream at a previously permitted impact location. The permit will now authorize the permanent impact of 2.02 acres of forested wetlands, 0.02 acre of emergent wetland, 6,897 linear feet of stream bed, and the permanent conversion of no more than 2.22 acres of forested wetland to emergent wetland. In addition, the project shall result in temporary impacts to no more than 0.15 acre emergent wetland and 384 linear feet of stream bed. The activity proposed in the permit modification will affect wetlands and streams that drain to Blackman Creek in the James River watershed.
