The work described below was partially completed prior to obtaining a Department of the Army permit and was in violation of the Clean Water Act.  All legal issues concerning the unauthorized work have since been deferred.


CHARACTER OF WORK: Unauthorized clearing, filling and excavating activities on 1.6 acres of jurisdictional forested wetlands to construct a residential home site, driveway, yard, shed and fishing pond.  The applicant proposes to permanently clear and fill approximately 0.7 acre, for construction of a driveway, housepad, yard and shed.  Approximately 1.3 acres of jurisdictional wetlands previously impacted on the site will be allowed to self-restore naturally, hauled in fill will be removed and wetland contours will be re-established, as shown on the attached drawings.  A 50’ x 100’ pond will be excavated and spoil material will be placed on-site for the proposed housepad.  A 24-inch culvert will be placed in the jurisdictional ditch along the front of the property for driveway construction, impacting approximately 0.08 acre of a Water of the US. Compensatory mitigation for unavoidable wetland impacts will be satisfied through the purchase of credits at an approved mitigation bank.


          The applicant may be required to fully or partially restore the site to pre-project conditions if issuance of a permit is determined to be contrary to the public interest.
