Press Release:

Firm Receives Waiver of 300-foot Tributary Rule and Nationwide Permit For Residential Development In Johnson County Kansas

Wednesday, February 15, 2017

David Flick, Principal and Founder, announces that the firm successfully completed Section 404/401 Clean Water Act permitting for the Boulder Hills Residential Development in Olathe Kansas. The development will help meet the demand for residential homes along the 175 th Street corridor in south central Johnson County Kansas.

Scientists with Terra Technologies completed a jurisdictional assessment of potential waters of the United States and to document existing site conditions. The parcel is approximately 80 acres in size and consists of agricultural land. A total of 1.25 acres of wetlands, 545 lineal feet of ephemeral stream channel, and no ponds were delineated on the property.


Nationwide Permits that authorize impacts to jurisdictional waters resulting from most projects are limited to 300 feet of tributary impacts. When requested by the applicant, the US Army Corps of Engineers can evaluate the merits of waiving the 300 foot limitation when impacts occur to a tributary whose function is impaired prior to impact. Impairments are often associated with the absence if riparian corridors and other stream impacts upstream and downstream from the project site.


As a permit condition, the applicant is required to purchase mitigation credits from the Kansas River and Missouri River Wetland and Stream Umbrella Mitigation Bank serving the project watershed. For more information about Clean Water Act Nationwide Permits and Waiver Requests, contact your local office of Terra Technologies.
