PROPOSED DISCHARGE OF DREDGED OR FILL MATERIAL TO FISH CREEK WETLANDS

The Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality (WDEQ) has received a request from Biota Research and Consulting, Inc. on behalf of Camille Obering Musser for State certification of U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Nationwide Permits #12 and #14, for discharge of dredged or fill material to wetlands tributary to Fish Creek near Wilson, Wyoming. The purpose of this project is to construct a driveway and utilities to a guest house in Lot 27 of the Schofield Patent Subdivision. All waters within the Fish Creek drainage are designated Class 1 waters where point source discharges are prohibited except for storm water and construction related discharges. This certification will require meeting the provisions in Chapter 1, Section 7(b) of the WDEQ Water Quality Rules and Regulations, which allows these discharges under certain circumstances. The project will result in permanent impacts to 0.02 acre of wetland. 

Requests for information about the proposed water quality certification should be directed to Eric Hargett by email (eric.hargett@wyo.gov) or phone (307-777-6701). Comments must be addressed to Eric Hargett, Wyoming DEQ/WQD, 200 W. 17th Street – 4TH floor, Cheyenne, WY, 82002, and be postmarked on or before 5:00 p.m. on February 13, 2018 to be considered.  Phone or email comments will not be accepted.
