Press Release:

Scientists Receive Individual 404 Permit For Commercial Project In Kearney, Missouri


February 3, 2012

David Flick, Principal and Founder, announces that the firm has successfully completed Section 404/401 Clean Water Act permitting for a commercial development in Kearney, Missouri. Craig Gump, Terrestrial Ecologist with the firm served as Project Manager.

 

In July 2009, Terra Technologies completed a jurisdictional assessment of potential waters of the United States on a tract of land in Kearney, Missouri and submitted the findings to the Kansas City District of the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Regulatory Division for an approved jurisdictional determination (AJD). The August 2009 AJD identified 346 linear feet of relatively permanent stream channel and 1,631 linear feet of non-relatively permanent stream channel within the property. Total proposed jurisdictional impacts for the development exceeded 300 linear feet of stream channel. Therefore, an Individual Section 404/401 Permit was required. In March 2011 a Public Notice was circulated and Terra Technologies assisted the owner in responding to substantive Public Comments received. Additionally, the firm provided an alternatives analysis that documented the proposed site location and layout as the most practicable to avoid & minimize jurisdictional impacts. The USACE concurred with the findings and the 404/401 Permit was issued in January 2012. Terra Technologies also assisted the owner in receiving compliance under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act by completing a Phase I Cultural Resources Survey. It was determined that the project will not threaten significant cultural resources. Terra Technologies is further working to ensure the project remains in compliance with the General Conditions of the Individual Section 404/401 Permit by obtaining bids for stream mitigation credits. The project is scheduled to begin construction in 2012.
