CHARACTER OF WORK:  The applicant is requesting a Department of the Army permit authorization for the construction of an approximate 52 lot residential subdivision (The Cottages at Savannah Row).  The project will entail the construction of 52 lots with pertinent houses, driveways and green space to accommodate each of the residences.  Also, the project will construct a recreational park and several green space common areas, sidewalks, two stormwater detention ponds with pertinent discharge outfalls, a sewer treatment plant, and appropriate ingress and egress access.  Approximately 6,488 cubic yards of native material would be placed in jurisdictional areas as a result of project implementation.  Approximately 3,915 cubic yards of hauled in materials (soil cement treated base / concrete / brick pavers / compacted limestone) would be placed onsite in jurisdictional areas as a result of project implementation.  Approximately 3.32 acres of jurisdictional wetlands and 0.17 acre of jurisdictional Other Waters of the United States (OWOUS) would be permanently impacted by the project.   Approximately 0.18 acre of OWOUS would be avoided and not directly impacted by the project.  The applicant has claimed that the project has been designed to avoid and minimize direct and secondary adverse wetland impacts to the maximum extent practicable.  The applicant is proposing to utilize best management practices during and after the construction phase of the project and that the project will receive approval from all appropriate drainage and sewage agencies.  The applicant is proposing to compensate for the unavoidable impact by purchasing mitigation credits from an approved mitigation bank.
