The purpose of the project is to greater serve the transportation needs of the local community and region, and to allow for future growth of ridership. The project will permanently impact 230 linear feet of perennial stream, approximately 2.14 acres of wetlands, and 1.66 acres of open water. Temporary wetland impacts are estimated at 0.53 acres. To compensate for impacts, the applicant proposes to purchase mitigation bank and stream credits. The Regulatory Branch is evaluating this project pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act.

    The U.S. Coast Guard proposes modify an existing permit authorization to dredge approximately 89,257 cubic yards of material to a maximum depth of -10 feet below mean low water from approximately 296,208 square feet of subaqueous bottom within Wormley Creek and the York River. The project will realign the existing channel where Wormely Creek meets the York River, and create a channel to the existing boat ramp at the Coast Guard Training Center Yorktown. The dredged material from the channel will be removed by mechanical or hydraulic cutterhead dredge methods during the initial and future maintenance dredging cycles. The sandy dredged material from the entrance of the channel will be used as beach nourishment along the York River shoreline of the Coast Guard Training Center York, and the fine dredge material will be transported by bottom dump scow to the Wolftrap Alternate Placement Site within the Chesapeake Bay. The proposed permit modification will allow for the construction of a temporary access road to be used for the offloading and transportation of the sandy dredged material to be placed along the York River shoreline. The proposed access road will result in temporary impacts to 118,000 square feet of wetlands and/or waters, and those areas will be restored to pre-existing conditions upon completion of the project.

    The City of Norfolk has applied for an individual permit to dredge two channels in the Lafayette River. These channels are known as the West Belvedere Channel and the Regent Channel. The purpose of the dredging is to provide recreational boat access for the general public and properties located along both of these channels. Knowing that the property owners will want to connect their basins with the two channels, the City of Norfolk is proposing the creation/restoration of tidal wetlands and the creation of oyster reef habitat in order to compensate the impacts to mudflats resulting from both the municipal dredging and the proposed dredging of the surrounding property owners.
