Purpose of the meeting
A public hearing to receive comment on a draft Virginia Water Protection (VWP) permit for the City of Alexandria Potomac Yard Metrorail Station project. The project is located east of Potomac Avenue, west of George Washington Memorial Parkway, and north of Potomac Greens Drive in City of Alexandria, Virginia. The permit will allow the applicant to fill surface waters consisting of wetlands. The proposed activity would permanently affect 0.92 acre of palustrine forested wetland (PFO) and 0.64 acre of palustrine emergent wetland (PEM), and would temporarily affect 1.10 acres of PFO and 0.91 acre of PEM. The activity proposed in the permit will affect surface waters in the Potomac River watershed. A watershed is the land area drained by a river and its incoming streams. To compensate for the affected area, the applicant would purchase 4.96 wetland credits for permanent impacts and 1.10 wetland credits for temporary impacts. DEQ’s preliminary decision is to recommend issuance to the State Water Control Board. NOTE: An information briefing will be held before the public hearing from 6:00 p.m. to 6:45 p.m.
