  • 2015-SPN-1 Interpretive Rule Withdrawn

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of the Army (Army) are announcing the withdrawal of an interpretive rule addressing the exemption from permitting provided under section 404(f)(1)(A) of the Clean Water Act (CWA). The agencies want to make clear that the statutory exemption of 404(f)(1)(A) still remains available for use when applicable for discharges of dredged and/or fill material associated with normal farming, silviculture, and ranching activities that are part of an established operation and that do not have as their purpose bringing an area of waters of the U.S. into a use to which it was not previously subject, where the flow or circulation of the waters of the U.S. may be impaired or the reach of such waters be reduced (see 33 CFR 323.4 for more information).

    LOCATION: Lat: 40.015781 N, Lon: -75.712674 W. The linear wetland is located along the south side of the US 30 Bypass, 1,650 feet west of the intersection of Creek Road and US 30 Bypass in Caln Township, Chester County, PA. ACTIVITY: The applicant proposes to install a 26 inch gas transmission line through wetland W400-PA via open cut trench method. This will entail clearing all vegetation from the right-of-way and the additional work space within W400-PA, striping and segregating the topsoil, opening the trench, welding the pipe string together, laying the pipe, back filling the trench, and lastly, placing the segregated top soil back over top of the entire work area. This will result in the temporary disturbance of 2.207 acre of W400-PA. Of the 2.207 acres of impact, 1.501 acres of W400-PA will be permanently maintained as right-of-way over the pipeline. This will result in the permanent conversion of this area from a Palustrine Forested (PFO) wetland to a Palustrine Emergent (PEM) wetland. There is no loss of overall wetland acreage, just the conversion from one type of wetland to another. Columbia has proposed that the remaining 0.706 acres of wetland will be allowed to regenerate naturally
