The applicant proposes modifications to a previously authorized permit under SWG-2022-00346 issued on 10 November 2022, and expires 31 December 2027.  The proposed project modifications include a westerly shift of the proposed substation, an updated design for the vegetated detention pond, and the addition of three laydown areas.  Additional project modifications include a reduced clearing and grubbing limit and installation of two new culverts to construct the substation and detention pond.  Modifications to the proposed substation and transmission line cut-in will alter impacts to waters of the US, as follows:


  • Temporary impacts in palustrine emergent (PEM) wetlands within the transmission line cut-in will increase from 0.19 acres to 0.23 acres.
  • Total loss of wetland functions in PEM wetlands for pole installation will increase from 0.003 acres to 0.004 acres.
  • Total loss of wetland functions in palustrine forested (PFO) wetlands for construction of the substation, access road and detention pond will remain at 1.63 acres.
  • Conversion impacts in PFO wetlands from clearing/grubbing will decrease from 0.38 acres to 0.134 acres.
  • Temporary impacts to streams (D-1 & OW-2) will remain at 0.03 acres.
