Virginia Electric and Power Company proposes to construct two power substations adjacent to an existing transmission line within the Broad Run drainage area in Loudoun County, Virginia. The activities will impact 0.17 acres of forested wetlands, 0.02 acres of emergent wetlands, 449 square feet of grading along the bank of a perennial stream (Broad Run), and 791 linear feet of intermittent stream associated with the substation footprints as well as a proposed stormwater management facility. In compliance with regulations implementing Section 106 of the NHPA, the Corps is soliciting comments on the proposed project from the public; federal, state, and local agencies and officials; Native American Tribes; and other interested parties. This public notice provides an opportunity for members of the public to express their views on the undertaking’s effects on historic properties and resolution of adverse effects. The Corps is requesting comments to assist in evaluation of the effects of the project on historic properties and evaluation of alternatives or modifications which could avoid, minimize, or mitigate adverse effects on historic properties. Public comments should be received by the close of business on June 22, 2023.
