Press Release:

Scientistas Receive Nationwide Permit Verification For Lenexa Development


January 27, 2012

David Flick, Principal and Founder, announces that the firm has successfully completed Section 404/401 Clean Water Act permitting for a proposed commercial development at Kansas Highway 7 and College Boulevard in Lenexa, Kansas. Craig Gump, Terrestrial Ecologist with the firm served as Project Manager.

 

In May 2011 Terra Technologies completed a jurisdictional assessment of potential waters of the United States within the limits of the proposed project and submitted the findings to the Kansas City District of the US Army Corps of Engineers Regulatory Division (USACE) for a jurisdictional determination. The August 2011 Approved Jurisdictional Determination (AJD) identified 280 linear feet of jurisdictional ephemeral stream channel within the limits of the proposed project. Upon receipt of the AJD, Terra Technologies submitted a pre-construction notification to the USACE to receive 404/401 Permit authorization for proposed impacts to the jurisdictional stream channel. As the project proposed to impact fewer than 300 linear feet of jurisdictional stream channel and 0.50 acre of waters of the United States, the project was eligible for Nationwide Permit (NWP) verification under NWP 39. However, as the project is located within the known range of the endangered Mead’s milkweed, Terra Technologies had to first complete an endangered species survey on the parcel to determine whether or not the endangered plant was present at the site. The survey determined that Mead’s milkweed was absent from the site and the results were submitted to the USACE for confirmation. The USACE concurred with the findings of the survey and the site received NWP 39 verification. Terra Technologies is further assisting the owner in complying with the Special Conditions of the 404/401 Permit by obtaining bids for stream mitigation credits. The project is scheduled to begin construction in 2012.
