Purpose of the meeting
A public hearing to receive comment on a draft special exception from the State Water Control Board (Board) for the temporary withdrawal of groundwater by Chickahominy Power LLC in Charles City County. Chickahominy Power LLC has applied for a special exception to withdraw groundwater in Charles City County, Virginia for a time period not to exceed 7 years. The special exception would allow the applicant to withdraw an average of 82,192 gallons per day. The groundwater withdrawal will support the operation of a natural gas fueled electric power generating plant. The proposed withdrawal will utilize the Potomac aquifer at a depth of approximately 260 feet below land surface at the withdrawal site. An aquifer is a body of rock or layer of sediment in the ground in which groundwater is stored and transported. DEQ has made a tentative decision to issue the special exception.
