This project will relocate a spring-fed unnamed tributary drainage to Kelsey Creek to provide the required setback distance for the installation of residential septic system. The existing drainage will be replaced in-kind as a vegetated natural-bottom drainage approximately 20 feet away. Soil and vegetation from the existing drainage shall be relocated to the new drainage. No trees shall be removed. Once the new drainage is created, the existing drainage shall be filled in with soil from the site.
This project is a minor alteration to private land that does not involve the removal of healthy, mature, scenic trees. The drainage to be relocated will be replaced in-kind and will provide the same functions and values the existing drainage currently provides.
