The wetland fill will involve 945 square feet near the northern tip of the <br />Category II emergent and forested wetland community. A seasonal drainage enters the <br />northwest corner of the wetland and a culvert is proposed to accommodate that flow of water <br />so that hydrology is maintained. The project lies in the NE JA of the SE JA of Section 10, <br />Township 26 N, Range 1 W. WM and is just west of Coyle Road north of its intersection <br />with Blueberry Hill Road. The fill of wetland is less than 1/2 acre in waters of the US and a <br />Nationwide Permit is required from the US Army Corps of Engineers. The discussion of <br />Essential Fish Habitat is included with this biological evaluation. Site photos documenting <br />current conditions of the proposed driveway route are included at the back of the BE and are <br />referenced throughout the BE. <br /> <br />Project Description <br />The parcel on which the wetland fill is proposed is 5 acres in size and is part of the <br />Blueberry Hill Large Lot Subdivision, which is comprised of 10 individual 5 acre parcels <br />lying east and west of Blueberry Hill Road. Blueberry Hill Road provides access to all lots <br />of the subdivision from Coyle Road and ends at a cul-de-sac at the southeast corner of this <br />parcel. This is the legal access point to the lot and no access is permitted to the lot from <br />Coyle Road because there is a large open space tract along the west side of the subdivision. <br />The wetland fill is necessary to achieve construction of a driveway to the building site lying <br />on the west half of the site. The driveway will leave Blueberry Hill Road at the cul-de-sac <br />across the east half and will run along the north property line to the proposed building site. <br />The building site is the only suitable location as there is a large enough area outside the <br />required 100 foot buffer to construct the home. The drainfield is also proposed on the west <br />side because the well is proposed on the east side and the drainfield is required to be at least <br />100 feet from the well site. Single family homes have already been constructed on lots to the <br />south and southeast with no homes on the adjacent eastern lot. The building site has been <br />placed where it will require the least amount of vegetation removal and will involve only <br />removal of a few red alder trees. The small conifer forest at the south end will not be <br />removed. <br /> <br />1 <br />
