Under WVDEP's proposed modifications to Special Condition C of the USACE Nationwide 12 Permit, a condition would be added to clarify that environmentally protective methods of stream crossings that take longer than 72 hours would be permitted. Another proposed condition would be added to allow a construction project to use a stream crossing method that is more environmentally protective than the current conditions allow. An additional modification is being made to clarify the need for mitigation for permanent stream impacts that total more than 300 feet.
The proposed permit modifications can be viewed here on the WVDEP website:
