DRAFT Virginia Water Protection (VWP) Permits

comment Period  regional Office  contact  Location  Facility  Project Description
June 26, 2020 to July 27, 2020 Piedmont Regional Office Justin Brown Chesterfield County Meadowville Technology Park

Chesterfield Economic Development Authority has requested to modify its current Virginia Water Protection (VWP) permit for the Meadowville Technology Park. The project is located in Meadowville Technology Park, between North Enon Church Road and Meadowville Technology Parkway, in Chesterfield County, Virginia. The permit will allow the applicant to fill surface waters, wetland and stream. The modification to the permit is related to the alignment of Digital Drive which is necessary to allow for the construction of the Cartograf facility, in order to provide emergency access to the property and provide reliable secondary ingress/egress. The proposed modification will increase the permanent impact to forested wetland by 0.50 acre, increase the permanent impact to emergent wetland by 0.01 acre, and increase the permanent impact to stream bed by 75 linear feet. In total, this permit will now authorize permanent impacts to no more than 0.23 acre of emergent wetland, 8.21 acres of isolated forested wetland, 1.94 acres of forested wetland (not isolated), and 159 linear feet of stream bed, and 0.05 acre of permanent conversion from forested wetland to emergent wetland. The current proposed activity is considered a “single and complete project” with additional portions of the Meadowville Technology Park previously authorized through VWP Authorizations 13-1389, WP3-11-1819 and WP3-08-0171, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Nationwide Permit 12. Including this permit, cumulative authorized impacts are: 0.86 acre of emergent wetland, 8.95 acres of isolated forested wetland, 3.447 acres of forested wetland, 0.753 acre of forested wetland conversion, 387 linear feet of stream bed, and temporary impacts to 0.32 acre of emergent wetland and 0.148 acre of forested wetland. The activity proposed in the permit will affect wetlands and streams that drain to Johnson Creek in the James River watershed. A watershed is the land area drained by a river and its incoming streams. To compensate for the increase of permanent impacts in the affected area, the applicant would purchase 1.01 wetland credits and 73 USM stream mitigation bank credits from a mitigation bank or in lieu fee fund in the same or adjacent watershed, as approved by DEQ. In total, 20.35 wetland credits and 146 stream credits are required to compensate for impacts associated with this project. DEQ’s preliminary decision is to issue the permit.
