February 14, 2019 - Public Notice Announcing Federal Register Publication of Proposed New Definition of "Waters of the United States" - 2/14/2019: Title: 14 February - EPA and Army publish proposed revised "waters of the United States" definition The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of the Army announced today the publishing in the Federal Register of the proposed new definition of "waters of the United States" that clarifies federal authority under the Clean Water Act. The notice is available at https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2019/02/14/2019-00791/revised-definition-of-waters-of-the-united-states. The agencies' proposal is the second step in a two-step process to review and revise the definition of "waters of the United States" consistent with the February 2017 Presidential Executive Order entitled "Restoring the Rule of Law, Federalism, and Economic Growth by Reviewing the 'Waters of the United States' Rule." The publishing of the proposal and outreach efforts were delayed due to the lapse in appropriations for EPA. Today's notice begins a 60-day public comment period that will close on April 15, 2019. EPA and the Army will hold an informational webcast on February 14, 2019, and will host a listening session on the proposed rule in Kansas City, KS, on February 27-28, 2019. Information, including supporting analyses and fact sheets, are available at: https://www.epa.gov/wotus-rule/step-two-revise and https://www.epa.gov/wotus-rule.

NWO-2015-01403-WEH - 1/4/2019: Stalp Gravel Greta Roth Property - The applicant has proposed to amend the existing Standard Permit authorized, May 17, 2016. The existing Standard Permit was authorized as follows: The project is a sand and gravel mining operation. The project involves removing existing vegetation and then excavating soil overburden to expose sand and gravel deposits. Those materials will then be extracted and sorted by use of a floating dredge operation. Materials mined will be sorted and processed at a facility to be constructed in an upland site location on the property. Mined areas will be backfilled with unused overburden sand, soil and gravel materials concurrently as mining progresses. Mining will impact about 83 acres out of the 100-acre property site including 2.71 acres of wetlands. It is estimated that 1.53 acres of wetlands impacted will be filled and converted to uplands and 1.18 acres will be converted to open water. Hydric soils located in the overburden layer will be stockpiled for use in final grading of a compensatory wetland mitigation site planned for creation in the southwestern corner of the property. The anticipated life of the sand and gravel mining operation is ten years once the project starts. The following amendments have been proposed: Within the existing 100-acre permit area, the project involves removing additional vegetation and then excavating soil overburden to expose sand and gravel deposits within “Lake B”. Those materials will then be extracted and sorted by use of a floating dredge operation within “Lake B”. Materials mined will be sorted and processed at a facility to be constructed in an upland site location on the property. Additionally, unused overburden sand, soil and gravel materials will be discharged into the pond located approximately 1,100 feet east of “Lake B”, which is outside the previously authorized 100-acre permit area. It is estimated that an additional 0.45 acre of wetlands will be filled and converted to uplands. Filling and excavation activities associated with the previously authorized work and currently proposed work will permanently impact approximately 3.16 acres of wetlands to include: 2.21 acres of Palustrine Forested (PFO), 0.68 acre of Palustrine Emergent (PEM), and 0.27 acre of wetlands in an agricultural setting. The anticipated life of the sand and gravel mining operation is ten years once the project starts.

NWO-2012-01895-WEH_phase 3 - 11/29/2018: The Nebraska Department of Transportation (NDOT) proposes to expand approximately 10.0 miles of United States Highway 30 (US-30) from a two-lane highway to a four-lane expressway. The current proposed project, Phase 3 - North Bend to Fremont, is the third and final phase of the Schuyler to Fremont US-30 project. The project would begin where the Phase 2 - Rogers to North Bend segment ends near County Road 11 and approximately 200 feet south of County Road S. From this point, Phase 3 would continue east for 10 miles where it converges with the US-30/US-77 interchange.
