    Chesterfield County proposes to restore water quality and treatment performance of Falling Creek Reservoir by mechanically dredging deposited sediment and constructing a sediment forebay to meet requirements of the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality Municipal Separate Storm System Permit. Falling Creek Reservoir was originally constructed in 1951 for water supply storage but has not been used for that purpose since 1985. The reservoir has lost 66 million gallons or 22% of the original storage capacity.

    The project requires a Department of the Army permit from the Norfolk District pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act and Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act. The proposed impacts will result in 0.07 acres of permanent impact and 0.90 acres of temporary impact to the James River (associated with the raw water intake structure); 195 square feet of temporary wetland impact, 255 square feet of permanent wetland conversion and 725 linear feet of temporary impacts to the Rivanna River and its unnamed tributaries (associated with the installation of a water line); and 245 square feet of permanent wetland impact, 201 square feet of temporary wetland impact and 40 linear feet of permanent impacts to unnamed tributaries to the Rivanna River (associated with the access road upgrades) to construct a new raw water intake, install new raw water lines and upgrade the existing access road. The Corps’ permit action associated with this project is subject to Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA).

    Joint Base Langley-Eustis is requesting the Corps of Engineers amend the Navigation Regulations published at 33 C.F.R. §334.280, "James River, Skiffes Creek and Warwick River surrounding Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Virginia; restricted areas and danger zones." JBLE-Eustis contains a military port berthing numerous Army vessels and conducts exercises to include small craft testing and live fire training activities. The proposed amendment is necessary to protect the public from hazards associated with training and mission operations, and to protect government assets, missions, and the base population in general. The proposed amendment increases the restricted areas and creates danger zones surrounding the existing installation and firing ranges.

    The applicant proposes to increase the shipyard’s permitted dredge depths by variable amounts to achieve a series of standardized depths ranging from -30’ MLW to -50’ MLW across their carrier, submarine, & other vessel navigational zones to improve flexibility for ship movements and eliminate future permit modification requests. The applicant is proposing to remove a total of 868,259 cubic yards of subaqueous bottom as part of the new dredging, and plans to dispose of the material at Craney Island.

    Markel Corporation proposes to construct a warehouse distribution center, a business office park, roads, parking, utilities and erosion and sediment control measures within the existing West Creek Business Park, located in Goochland County, Virginia. Proposed impacts are: 1.34 acres of forested wetlands, 0.45 acre of emergent wetlands, 0.36 acre of open water, and 1,912 linear feet of stream channel. To mitigate for the proposed impacts, the applicant has proposed to purchase 3.11 wetland credits and 1,408 stream credits from the Weatherbury Wetland Mitigation Bank and the Lone Oak Mitigation Bank. Previously authorized wetland impacts for the West Creek Industrial Park are approximately 12.5 acres.
