Press Release:

Scientists Receive Individual 404 Permit For Active Preservation Project

February 3, 2012

David Flick, Principal and Founder, announces that the firm has successfully completed Section 404/401 Clean Water Act permitting for an institutional development for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Craig Gump, Terrestrial Ecologist with the firm served as Project Manager.


In November 2010 Terra Technologies completed a jurisdictional assessment of potential waters of the United States within the limits of the proposed development 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 December 2010 AJD identified 0.07 acre of palustrine emergent wetland, 1,084 linear feet of relatively permanent stream channel, 447 linear feet of non-relatively permanent stream channel, and 0.70 acre of open water impoundment. Total proposed jurisdictional impacts for the development exceeded 0.50 acre. Therefore, an Individual Section 404/401 Permit was required. In August 2011 a Public Notice was circulated and Terra Technologies assisted The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in responding to substantive Public Comments received. In addition, the firm provided an alternatives analysis to the USACE 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 December 2011. Terra Technologies also assisted the client 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 also assisting the client in complying 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.
