Nashville, TN 37214 JOINT PUBLIC NOTICE US ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS
TENNESSEE VALLEY AUTHORITY AND STATE OF TENNESSEE SUBJECT: Proposed
Stream Relocation of an Unnamed Intermittent Tributary to Wolftever
Creek TO ALL CONCERNED:

APPLICANT: City of Collegedale Attn: Howell Graham P.O. Box 23251 Chattanooga, Tennessee 37422 LOCATION: Mile 0.5 Unnamed Tributary to Wolftever Creek Mile 15.5, Left Bank, Opposite Tennessee River Mile 478.6, Left Bank, Chickamauga Lake Area, Hamilton County, Tennessee, lat 35__3' 47.48", lon 85__4' 36.55", Ooltewah, TN Quadrangle DESCRIPTION:
The City of Collegedale proposes to develop a parcel of property for a retail business with parking, which would require the filling and relocation of an intermittent unnamed tributary. The proposal would consist of filling 475 feet of the existing tributary with approximately 510 cubic yards of clean earthen material and replacing it with 600 feet
of new stream channel. The existing channel has been previously relocated and is straight with steep slopes occurring diagonally across the property. It has a wide flat bottom width of 4-6 feet and a top of bank width of 6-10 feet, and is stabilized with riprap and planted trees in the riparian zone. The new channel would be constructed with a 12 foot-wide bottom shelf, a 2 foot-wide low flow channel, and a top of bank width of 28 feet. It would consist of meanders on an average gradient of 1.4%, and would have 2:1 side slopes. The channel 2 work would also occur within portions of an intermittent stream to the north
of the property. This intermittent stream would tie into and become part of the new channel. Native occurring trees would be planted within the channel and in the riparian zone to facilitate stability. The channel would also be lined with a stabilization mat and natural grass. The riparian zone at bank-full elevation would consist of 2 rows of trees on
10-foot centers. A 20-foot vegetated buffer would be established on both sides of the tributary also with native species similar to the naturally occurring vegetation. The mitigated stream would be held in perpetuity within the storm drain easement. The new channel would be constructed in the dry and would not receive water until bank stabilization has been established. The erosion control plan would generally consist of silt
booms within all exposed channels for use during rainfall events. Once the new channel is established, water would be diverted into it, and the existing channel would be filled in.

JOINT PUBLIC NOTICE US ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS AND TENNESSEE VALLEY
AUTHORITY AND STATE OF TENNESSEE SUBJECT:

Proposed Channel Fill and Culverting of an Unnamed Tributary to the Obed
River, Mile 34.6 Left Bank, Cumberland County, Tennessee

APPLICANT: City of Crossville, Tennessee For the Industrial Development Board 99 Municipal Avenue Crossville, Tennessee 38555

LOCATION: Unnamed Tributary to Obed River, Mile 34.6 Left Bank lat: 36-0-8 lon: 85-3-0
USGS ? Isoline/Crossville, TN

DESCRIPTION: The proposed work consists of the placement of fill in approximately 900 linear feet and culverting of another 900 feet of an unnamed tributary to the Obed River. The existing stream is shallow with a cobble substrate. The channel width varies from
1-2 feet in depth and 2-4 feet in width. A new channel approximately 220' in length would be constructed to replace a portion the existing impacted channel on site. The applicant proposes to construct a concrete box culvert approximately 650' long 8' x 8' under the plant facility and a box culvert approximately 250' long (8' x 8') would be placed as a road crossing to the plant along the relocated stream alignment. The new channel would be similar to the existing stream channel in size and substrate. All work would be performed in the dry. A plug would be left at the top and bottom of the newly 2 constructed channel and would be removed for diversion of stream flow, if present, after work in the new
channel has been completed and stabilized. The applicant proposes to conduct on-site and off-site mitigation for the proposed stream impacts. On-site mitigation would consist of the planting of native species of trees and vegetation along the relocated section of the stream. The applicant would install limestone barriers (see site plan) at various locations and construct 6.7 acres of wetlands on-site to improve water quality immediately downstream of the proposed site. Off-site mitigation would include the following: a) Cattle exclusion on 4448 feet of Meadow Creek and 2556 of bank structure restoration. b) Enhancement of 16.19 acres of prior converted wetlands by cattle exclusion and constructed berms to restore hydrology to the wetlands. Native trees and herbaceous cover would be planted to provide full cover. c) Two livestock crossings would be constructed to move cattle from field to field. Cattle would be provided watering facilities at various locations away from the stream.
d) Mitigation sites would be protected by placement of a Permanent Conservation Easement that would be equal or greater than thirty feet on each side of the stream channel and would encompass all of the enhanced wetland areas. These measures would provide positive impact on water quality of Meadow Creek. GranitiFiandre proposes to construct a ceramic tile plant at this location and has agreed to donate an initial sum of $15,000.00 and an additional $5000.00 each year to maintain and enhance the wetland areas located on their property. A local community group would use the donation specifically for improvements to the wetland. The wetland area would be available for use by GranitiFiandre employees and outside groups by permission of GranitiFiandre. The purpose of the proposed work is to prepare the site for the construction of a ceramic tile plant. Plans of the proposed work are attached to this notice. Written statements received in this office on or before January 21, 2001, will become a part of the record and will be considered in the determination. Any response to this notice should be directed to the Regulatory Branch, Attention: Carl R. Olsen, at the above

***9.  TWO (2) PUBLIC NOTICES FROM U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS

 

JOINT PUBLIC NOTICES

US ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS

AND STATE OF TENNESSEE

 

1.  PUBLIC NOTICE NO. 00-89 DATE: SEPTEMBER 13, 2000

SUBJECT: Proposed Channel Relocation and Mitigation for Unnamed Tributary, in

Franklin, Williamson County, Tennessee

TO ALL CONCERNED: The application described below has been submitted for a

Department of the Army Permit pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33

U.S.C. 1344).

APPLICANT: City of Franklin, P.O. Box 305, Franklin, Tennessee 37065

LOCATION: Site One - Channel Relocation and Mitigation Site on Unnamed TributaryMile 0.5, a tributary to Harpeth River Mile 87.7R, along Liberty Pike, in Franklin,Williamson County, Tennessee (Franklin Quad; lat 35-55-28.0200, lon 86-49-25.1400)

Site Two – Mitigation Site on Unnamed Tributary Mile 0.8, a tributary to Watson Branch and Harpeth River Mile 89.2R, near Curd Lane, in Franklin, Williamson County, Tennessee (Franklin Quad; lat 35-55-26.0400, lon 86-48-58.3920)

DESCRIPTION: The proposed work consists of placing approximately 485’ of an existing concrete-lined channel into approximately the same distance of 54” pipe culvert along Liberty Pike. This unnamed tributary is a small, spring-fed stream which has been impacted in the past by concrete-lining. Mitigation of this proposal would include removing a 120’ section of concrete-lining on the same tributary and restore the streambed to an open channel (see Sheets 3 and 4 for mitigation details of Site One). The proposed mitigation would consist of restoring the stream to a gravel bottom, creating riffle and pool sections, and constructing a cross section of 3’ wide in pool areas and 10’ wide in riffle areas with 2:1 side slopes. Pin Oak seedlings would be planted along each side of the stream on two alternating rows.

 

In addition to mitigation at Site One, stream restoration is proposed on another unnamed tributary (see Site Two on plans). This mitigation would involve restoring approximately 400’ of stream that has significantly been impacted in the past from dumping and unauthorized fill activities. Approximately 50’ of the 400’ would be impacted in the future by a proposed culverted road crossing. Mitigation at this site would be similar to the mitigation at Site One with first creating a defined channel bed (see Sheets 5 and 6 for mitigation details). The purpose of the channel relocation is to allow the proposed roadway expansion and realignment of Liberty Pike with bike lanes, provide a safer route in the developing area, and provide access to currently undeveloped property. Plans of the proposed work are attached to this notice.

 

Any person may request, in writing, within the comment period specified in this notice, that a public hearing be held to consider this application. Requests for public hearings shall state, with particularity, the reasons for holding a public hearing. Written statements received in this office on or before October 13, 2000, will become a part of the record and will be considered in the determination. Any response to this notice should be directed to the Regulatory Branch, Attention: Amy Robinson, at the above address, telephone (615) 736-2759.

 

2.  PUBLIC NOTICE NO. 00-83 DATE: AUGUST 29, 2000

 

SUBJECT: Proposed Wetland Filling to Facilitate the Construction of the Sevier Senior

Center along U.S. Highway 441 in Sevierville, Sevier County, Tennessee

TO ALL CONCERNED: The application described below has been submitted for a Department of the Army (DA) permit pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S.C. 1344). Before a permit can be issued, certification must be provided by the State of Tennessee, Division of Water Pollution Control, pursuant to Section 401(a)(1) of the CWA, that applicable water quality standards will not be violated. By copy of this notice, the applicant hereby applies for the required certification.

APPLICANT: Sevier County Economic Development Council 215 Court, Suite 300 Sevierville, TN 37864

LOCATION: North side of U.S. Highway 441 in Sevierville, Sevier County, Tennessee; Gists Creek, Tributary to Pigeon River, Mile 1.0, Left Bank, Pigeon Forge, TN Quadrangle (156-SE), Latitude: 35-52’-17.1”, Longitude: 83-35’-45.4”.

DESCRIPTION: The applicant proposes the construction of a Senior Center and associated driveways and parking areas just east of Sevierville along U.S. Highway 441. Future development on the southwestern portion of the site may include construction of an additional building. The permit application includes the proposed alteration for the entire site, even through the Senior Center is the only structure proposed at this time. The proposed development would result in the filling of 1.01 acres of wetlands to facilitate the proposal on the 13 acre site. Mitigation would consist of the restoration of wetlands in the northwest corner of the site, within the floodway. The proposed mitigation area currently contains 0.38 acres of wetlands. An additional 2.02 acres of wetland would be

developed to increase the total wetland area to 2.4 acres.

 

The mitigation would be accomplish by a) removing and stockpiling the topsoil from the mitigation area, b) undercutting approximately 1.0 to 1.5 feet of material, c) replacing the topsoil. The shallow water table at the site would provide the majority of the water to establish the wetland. A small, narrow channel (3’ wide by 12” deep) would be excavated to provided additional hydrology from an unnamed tributary of Gists Creek.  A variety of trees and shrubs would be planted on 30’ centers to enhance the existing wetlands, provide habitat diversity, and stabilize the mitigation area. A monitoring program would be implemented for a five year period.

 

Any person may request, in writing, within the comment period specified in this notice, that a public hearing be held to consider this application. Requests for public hearings shall state, with particularity, the reasons for holding a public hearing. Written statements received in this office on or before September 28, 2000, will become a part of the record and will be considered in the determination. Responses to this notice should be directed to the Regulatory Branch, Attention: Marty G. Tyree, at the above address, telephone (615) 736-5183.
