  • NAO-2021-00207 (Buchanan Minerals Impoundment, Buchanan County, Virginia)

    Expiration date: 9/17/2023

    PROJECT DESCRIPTION AND PURPOSE:  Construct a freshwater impoundment for the retention and delivery of sufficient quality and quantity of water to the adjacent coal preparation plant to facilitate continued coal extraction/recovery of metallurgical bituminous coal from the existing underground Buchanan No. 1 mine for an anticipated 25-years.  The proposed impoundment is planned to provide for 96-acre-feet of storage and the applicant anticipates that it would provide 2,400 gallons per minute, or approximately 3.5 million gallons per day of freshwater, for processing raw material for a targeted annual output of 1-2 million tons of cleaned coal.  Construction of the impoundment would permanently impact approximately 1,340 linear feet of Garden Creek.  Specifically,  the construction of the dam would result in a permanent loss of 480 linear feet of streambed and the subsequent backfilling of Garden Creek would result in a permanent conversion of 860 linear feet of stream habitat to open water habitat.

    The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is requesting two modifications to its existing Letter of Permission (LOP-1) and Individual Permit that authorized the original work on this Route 50 project, which is being widened to relieve traffic congestion and improve safety. The LOP-1 was authorized on Nov. 16, 2011, and a later Individual Permit was issued for additional wetland and stream impacts at the Cub Run crossing on Sept. 27, 2012. Public comment period ends May 29, 2013.
