' ' ' •j. . . . . ..... -• CON 24-06 MEMORANDUM TO: Loris Asmussen, Okeechobee Service Center THROUGH: Robert BrownJINa al Resource Management Division FROM: Gregory J. Sa , eechobee Service Center DATE: March 12, 1998 SUBJECT: 101 Ranch Application No. 980213-6 Please provide copies of the RAI to the following individuals: Elizabeth Bishop, COE Mike Jennings, USFWS Beacham Furse, FGFWFC The following comment is offered in response to the latest submittal received in regard to the above application: \ 1 2 . . r After reviewing the aerial photographs and plans provided with this application, it appears that the "existing condition" plan does not accurately reflect the limits of wetlands present. Please contact Gregory Sawka at the Okeechobee Service Center, (941) 462-5260, to schedule a site inspection to verify the locations of wetlands in relation to the proposed work. Please verify that the proposed collection ditches will not intersect or connect to wetlands and that the ditches will not be terminated at a point where _the resulting groundwater gradient will not exceed the District's wetland nake separation criteria as contained in Section 4.10 Basis of Review for Surface Water Management Permits (March 10, 1994) . \ 3. District criteria requires an average 25' wide (minimum 15') upland buffer around all wetlands. Please provide a cross-section detail of the levee construction in the vicinity of wetlands showing the required buffers. 4 . Please revise the plans to show the location and details of silt fences or other erosion "-control measures to be used during the construction of the proposed work.


Asmussen App . lication No. 980213-6 " Page 2 Please revise the master plan to show the following information: a) all wetland areas with identification numbers b) location of all proposed ditches and levees c) Fish Slough drainageway d) add proposed levees to the legend on the master plan 6. The master plan indicates that there are three proposed reservoir systems. However, it is unclear how water will be directed to the pump stations. Are new ditch connections proposed? If so, please revise the master plan to show new ditch connections. 7. The master plan shows that several riser structures are proposed connecting to Fish Slough. How will the pumped reservoir systems function if gravity discharge is also proposed? 8. How will the proposed Reservoir #3 connect with Fish Slough? No connections are indicated on the plans. Since a pumped system is proposed to regulate water elevations within the pastures containing wetlands, establishment of seasonal high water elevations (SHWEs) within all wetland areas will be necessary to certify the pump-off elevations so that there will not be any adverse impacts to wetlands. The SHWEs can be established during the wetland boundary verification inspection requested above. Pump-off elevations below the SHWEs will be considered a wetland impact unless the applicant can demonstrate that the proposed pump-off elevations will not adversely impact the wetlands. 1 O. It appears that several wetlands will be included in the proposed reservoirs . . Based on the flood routing provided, it appears that stages in Reservoir #1 will exceed the control elevation in excess of 14 days following the 25-year, 3-day storm event. \ cy _ Please be advised that the reservoir system should be sized/designed to recover the ~\ SHWEs of the wetlands within 14 days. If stages exceed control after 14 days, this will be considered a wetland impact and will require mitigation. 11. It appears that the proposed master plan will impact wetlands. Mitigation for wetland impacts will be required. Please document the location and acreage of all wetland impacts and provide a mitigation maintenance and monitoring plan for this project. 12. Please discuss the potential impacts of the proposed work on endangered and threatened species and species of special concern. Staff suggests that the applicant coordinate with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission.
