PROJECT DESCRIPTION:  The applicant proposes to permanently discharge approximately 53, 631 cubic yards of fill material into 5.864 acres of palustrine scrub shrub (PSS) wetlands, and 0.496-acre of palustrine emergent (PEM) wetlands.  The project proposes to temporarily discharge fill material into 9.894 acres of PEM wetlands but will be restored to preconstruction contours and allowed to re-vegetate after construction is complete.  This project will permanently convert 5.799 acres of PSS wetlands to PEM wetlands within a 50-foot perimeter of the substation and within a 225-foot right-of-way (ROW) for power pole placement.  These impacts are proposed for the construction of a 4.0-acre electrical substation, a 1,600-linear-foot-long, 225-linear-foot-wide ROW for two overhead transmission lines, and a 1.1-mile-long, 20- to 25-foot-wide access road.
