  • Wetland Hydrology Determinations for the 2018 Monitoring Season

    The Norfolk District Regulatory Branch is issuing a public notice regarding precipitation conditions and groundwater monitoring associated with wetland determinations. Many sources of precipitation data indicate drier-than-normal climatic conditions in southeastern Virginia and our groundwater monitoring data indicate a shorter than typical wetland hydroperiod this season. Given these conditions, jurisdictional determinations should be based on current Corps guidance and evaluation of field indicators of vegetation, soils, and wetland hydrology. In addition, based on plant biological activity, the growing season in southeastern Virginia started the second full week in February.

    The proposed mitigation site (Site) is located on approximately 18.13 acres of a previous sand and gravel mining site. The Site is located in Philips Creek drainage basin which is a tributary that flows to the Atlantic Ocean in Northampton County, Virginia. The sponsor proposes to establish, design, construct, and operate a compensatory wetland mitigation site to be known as AO-6 Philips Creek (Branscome, Inc.). The purpose of the mitigation project is to provide off-site compensatory mitigation for projects that result in unavoidable impacts to wetlands and other waters of the United States in the Atlantic Ocean Drainage Basin.

    The proposed project would occur on unnamed tributaries to White Run and wetlands adjacent to the tributaries. The proposed project is located in the Rapidan-Upper Rappahannock watershed. The site is located at 221 Luck Stone Road, Ruckersville, Greene County, Virginia. The applicant proposes to place fill into waters of the United States (U.S.) in order to expand the existing Greene Plant crushed stone quarry. Luck Stone proposes to extract the additional mineral reserves located adjacent to and northwest of the existing quarry for the stated purpose of meeting a current demand for aggregates as well as allowing the quarry to operate for the next 100 years without any future impacts to waters of the U.S.
