Press Release:

Firm Receives Nationwide Permit For Kansas Limestone Quarry Development


November 12 , 2012

David Flick, Principal and Founder, announces that the firm has successfully completed Section 404/401 Clean Water Act permitting for a proposed limestone quarry operation in Atchison County, Kansas. Quarry operations are projected for a period of 15-25 years.

 

After receipt of clearances from the Kansas State Historic Preservation Office and Kansas Department of Wildlife, scientists with the firm completed a Jurisdictional Assessment of Potential Surface Waters including ponds, wetlands, and streams at the 150+ acre site in order to provide critical master planning information for use by the client. Based on such information, the quarry operator identified limits for 5-year, 10-year, and 15-year aggregate removal with avoidance of important habitat features.

 

Senior staff submitted a phase-identified quarry development plan to the US Army Corps of Engineers seeking a Nationwide 404 Permit authorization for the first five years of site utilization, avoiding all streams and major wetland complexes on the parcel. Because Nationwide Permit authorizations often expire within two years of issuance, staff at the firm will seek permit re-verification to seek additional extension of the original authorization.

 

Mitigation credits offsetting a farm pond wetland fringe loss are proposed for purchase from the Stranger Creek Wetland and Stream Mitigation Bank west of Bonner Springs, Kansas.
