Contegra Construction Company, LLC., seeks authorization, under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act, to construct a multi-family residential development with associated parking, access roads, and a detention pond. The work will include site filling and grading, tree clearing, piping of a stream channel, construction of a detention pond and the construction of an apartment complex. The proposed work will impact 0.02-acres of low quality emergent wetland, a 0.66-acre scrub/shrub wetland, a 0.39-acre pond and 490-linear feet of an intermittent stream. Compensatory mitigation will be required for the project. The applicant has requested to purchase stream and wetland credit from mitigation banks. The project location is not within the service area of an active mitigation bank. Therefore, the required wetland credit will be purchased from the Eberhardt Wetland Mitigation Bank (EWMB) in Madison County, IL. The credit associated with the stream impacts will be purchased from the Little Muddy Stream and Wetland Mitigation Bank (LMSWMB) in Franklin and Perry Counties, Illinois as well as the EWMB.
The proposed multi-family residential development (Theatre View) will be located north of the intersection of Center Grove Road and South Plum Street within the City of Edwardsville, Illinois. More specifically, the proposed project is located within Northwest ¼ of Section 23, Township 04 North, Range 08 West of the 3rd Principle Meridian, Madison County, IL.
