Public Notice          Project Plans          Mitigation Plan

The applicant proposes to discharge approximately 290 cubic yards of clean fill and box culvert system into 0.27 acre (803 linear feet) of manmade intermittent ditch.  The applicant plans to install a 7-foot by 3-foot box culvert.  Once installed, the box culvert is anticipated to improve the flow of stormwater conveyed from State Highway 361 and adjacently located residential developments.  The proposed project would permanently impact 0.27 acre (803 linear feet) of a manmade intermittent ditch.  The ditch currently outfalls into a large manmade canal/lake with connectivity to Corpus Christi Bay through existing piping structures that cross underneath the waterbody’s embankment.  During construction, the existing pipes would be removed and replaced with a 7-foot by 3-foot box culvert outfall structure.  The proposed headwall associated with the outfall structure would match the current grade of the embankment system along the manmade canal/lake and impacts below the ordinary high water mark (OHWM) are not anticipated to occur.
