Permit Denied for CCC

03/04/2012 3:06 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)
MNPS received an undated copy of a letter from that the Army Corps of Engineers has determined that the proposed Cross County Connector (in Charles County) -- the CCC -- does not comply with Corps regulations.
Brief summary of the ACE's evaluation of the CCC:
  • Proposed project would have a direct adverse impact on non-tidal forested wetlands; stream channels and waterways; fish and wildlife; and water quality
  • There are potential practicable alternatives, such as utilizing existing roads
  • May result in substantial cumulative adverse impacts to Mattawoman Creek
  • The proposal has been determined to be contrary to the public interest
