Pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S. Code 1344), notice is hereby given that Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation (MCHF), P.O. Box 366, Jefferson City, Missouri 65102-0366, proposes to establish Mitigation Plan No. SSTF1003-Stone County, entitled the Roundhouse Road Bridge Replacement. The mitigation plan would be established under MCHF’s Stream Stewardship Trust Fund (SSTF) In-lieu Fee Instrument. A draft copy of the mitigation plan has been reviewed by the Interagency Review Team (IRT), which is composed of pertinent state and Federal resource agencies. The project site is on Roundhouse Road at an existing crossing of Crane Creek, in the NE ¼ of section 30, T. 26 N., R. 24 W., Stone County, Missouri.

The purpose of the project is to improve aquatic organism passage in the upper reaches of Crane Creek, which supports a high profile wild trout management area. A self-sustaining population of Rainbow Trout thrives in the project area. Maintaining and improving fish passage to the headwaters of Crane Creek is critical to the continued success of this fishery.

Project Information. Pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S. Code 1344), notice is hereby given that Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation (MCHF) P.O. Box 366 Jefferson City, Missouri 65102-0366 proposes to establish Mitigation Plan No. SSTF1003-Stone County, entitled the Roundhouse Road Bridge Replacement. The mitigation plan would be established under MCHF’s Stream Stewardship Trust Fund (SSTF) In-lieu Fee Instrument. A draft copy of the mitigation plan has been reviewed by the Interagency Review Team (IRT), which is composed of pertinent state and Federal resource agencies. The project site is on Roundhouse Road at an existing crossing of Crane Creek, in the NE ¼ of section 30, T. 26 N., R. 24 W., Stone County, Missouri. The purpose of the project is to improve aquatic organism passage in the upper reaches of Crane Creek, which supports a high profile wild trout management area. A self-sustaining population of Rainbow Trout thrives in the project area. Maintaining and improving fish passage to the headwaters of Crane Creek is critical to the continued success of this fishery. The mitigation project consists of removing an existing bridge and replacing it with a new concrete clear-span bridge. The existing bridge is a span bridge, but has remnants of an old low water crossing beneath it which create a barrier to fish passage during low flows. The new bridge would be constructed on the same road alignment as the existing crossing. In addition to improving fish passage, the bridge replacement would improve sediment transport and increase stream stability within this stream reach. If approved by the Corps, in consultation with the IRT, the project would provide a total of 3,861 stream mitigation credits. The project site is located within the Wire Road Conservation Area managed by the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC). Stone County and MDC will be partnering for the project completion; the County would install and maintain the bridge and MDC would provide financial and technical assistance. The location and general plan for the proposed work are shown on the enclosed sheets. Water Quality Certification. If authorized, this project would meet the conditions of a nationwide permit, which presently has certification under Section 401 of the Clean Water Act (33 USC 1341) in compliance with applicable effluent limitations and water quality standards. Certification expresses the state's opinion that the discharge will not violate applicable water quality standards. Cultural Resources. A Corps staff archeologist will review topographic maps, the National Register of Historic Places, and other data on reported sites in the area. The District Engineer invites responses to this public notice from Native American Nations or tribal governments; Federal, State, and local agencies; historical and archeological societies; and other parties likely to have knowledge of or concerns with historic properties in the area. Endangered Species. Our preliminary determination is that the proposed activity will not affect listed Endangered Species or their critical habitat. A copy of this notice is being furnished to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and appropriate state agencies and constitutes a request to those agencies for information on whether any listed or proposed-to-be-listed endangered or threatened species may be present in the area which would be affected by the proposed activity. Floodplain. We are providing copies of this notice to appropriate floodplain officials in accordance with 44 CFR Part 60 (Floodplain Management Regulations Criteria for Land Management and Use) and Executive Order 11988 on Floodplain Management. Section 404(b)(1) Guidelines. The evaluation of activities to be authorized under this permit which involves the discharge of dredged or fill material will include application of guidelines promulgated by the Administrator, Environmental Protection Agency, under authority of Section 404(b) of the Clean Water Act. These guidelines are contained in 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 230. Public Involvement.

MDC region Southwest

Project objectives The objective of this project is to maintain and improve aquatic organism passage in the upper portions of Crane Creek, one of the Missouri Department of Conservation's (MDC) highest profile Wild Trout Management Areas. The existing bridge is a span bridge, but has remnants of an old low water crossing still in place beneath it. The roadway that the bridge is located on serves as a vital connection for people who live in the area and is used by emergency responders, school buses, and the postal service. The existing structure is deteriorating and is experiencing excessive deflections due to heavy loads. Due to funding restrictions, Stone County plans to replace the existing bridge with a series of corrugated metal pipe culverts that will create fish passage barriers and could lead to increased erosion and sedimentation at the site of the crossing. By supplementing the funds available from Stone County, the bridge can be replaced with a new span bridge that will minimize the related impacts on the stream fishery, facilitate sediment transport, improve fish passage, and increase public appreciation for the stream resources. These objectives will all address specific areas of concern discussed in the Compensation Planning

Framework for the Ozark/White EDU including aquatic resource problems, water quality problems, and aquatic resource conditions. The portions of Crane Creek flowing through the upper Wire Road Conservation Area will be used as a reference reach to help establish achievement of the defined objectives. 4) The project submitted for consideration is in the Ozark/White EDU watershed and is considered a priority by MDC for the following reasons (include how project achieves watershed objectives and describe the rationale for site selection). Crane Creek is an MDC Priority Watershed, under which one of the objectives is to reduce aquatic organism passage barriers. It flows into the James River, which is another MDC Priority Watershed. A self-sustaining population of Rainbow Trout thrives in the upper reaches of Crane Creek where this project is located. Maintaining and improving fish passage through this project area to the headwaters of Crane Creek is critical to the continued success of this fishery, as well as the spawning success of the Rainbow Trout and other aquatic species. MDC has worked with Stone County on several bridge replacements in the Crane Creek Watershed in the past, several of which have utilized SSTF funding. As a result, Stone County has become aware of the importance of this fishery and continued fish passage and has contacted MDC for assistance. Partnering on this project will strengthen our relationship with Stone County and will help facilitate future watershed scale improvements within two of the MDC's priority watersheds (Crane Creek and James River) and one of MDC's premier Blue Ribbon Trout Areas. 5) Site protection instrument (circle): Acquisition

Perpetual easement

Special management agreement

6) Describe the details of the site protection instrument (ownership, legal arrangements, how the instrument assures the long term protection of the proposed mitigation site): The bridge is owned by Stone County and maintained by the Road and Bridge department. MDC owns the land surrounding Crane Creek directly downstream of the bridge and the land is privately owned above. Stone County will install and maintain the new bridge and MDC will provide financial and technical assistance, these details will be included in a Memorandum of Agreement. 7)

Baseline information a. Describe the ecological characteristics of the proposed project site: The project site is located in Section 30, Township 26 North, Range 24 West in Stone County, Missouri. The bridge crosses Crane Creek at the northwest boundary of MDC's Wire Road Conservation Area and falls within the uppermost portion of the Blue Ribbon Trout Management Area. At this site, Crane Creek is a 4th order stream with a watershed of 19.5 square miles. The landscape largely falls within the White River Hills Ecological Subsection, having a high density of springs and streams with relatively high gradients. b. Historic and existing plant communities, hydrology and soils of the proposed project site: The land surrounding the stream at this site has adequate riparian corridor. The relatively deep soils are comprised of cherty limestone and capped with a thin

mantle of loess as the surface material. Surface textures consist of cherty and silty loams with moderate to slow infiltration rates. The stream is clear, with high base flows, and low suspended sediment loads. Substrates are comprised mainly of chert gravel and cobble, with well-defined riffles and gravel bars. Extensive stretches of bedrock channels also exist. The steep slopes combined with the moderate to slow infiltration rates of the soils results in this stream having a flashy hydrograph with flooding common during and after intense rainfall events. c. Project application must include maps identifying the proposed project boundary with lat/long boundaries in decimal degrees and a GIS shape file with metadata of the delineated boundary. See attached figures for project location and details. d. Describe existing hydro-system connectivity between the stream project site and any wetlands or other waters including tributaries connecting to receiving waters: Crane Creek is a 4th order stream at the project site and has one 3rd order unnamed tributary that enters about 300 feet above the project site. Little Crane Creek, a 3rd order stream, enters Crane Creek approximately 1.1 miles below the project site. There are no known wetlands connecting to this area. 8) Determination of credits as determined by the Missouri Mitigation Method (attach credit calculation worksheet or other detailed information to demonstrate the specific approach for credit calculation for this project): a. Number of stream channel credits 3,861 b. Number of riparian credits __0____ c. Stream type (circle): Ephemeral Intermittent Perennial Credit release schedule: 20%

Upon project approval by the COE and IRT

20%

Upon completion of the project and signing of long term maintenance agreement.

60% After two bank-full flow events or a maximum of two years, whichever occurs first. Our experience and observations suggest that the stability of the structure and its effects on the stream channel and related habitat could easily be observed after two high flow events and those events would be likely to occur, on average, within or prior to a two year time frame. 9) Mitigation work plan a. Specifications of the project (geographic boundaries, construction methods, timing, sequence): Replace the existing structure with a new bridge constructed on the same alignment as the existing bridge and remove the remnants of the old low water crossing beneath the bridge. The new bridge will be a single structure with an overall length of approximately 45 feet. The new bridge will be designed to carry an HS 20 vehicle and be wide enough to permit passage of some of the larger farm equipment. The roadway will be 24 feet wide allowing for two-lane traffic.

b. Methods for establishing desired plant community (species composition and type, control of undesirable species, size of plants used, control of wildlife damage): N/A

c. Grading plan and elevations of constructed features (describe or attach engineering design plans) The preliminary design report is attached. Actual design will take place after project approval. d. Describe or attach drawings showing existing stream channel cross sections, proposed alterations to the stream channel and/or banks, a description of in-stream structures including materials used for improvements, dimensions and elevations, and riparian plantings: See attached report and figures. 10) Maintenance plan: a. Description and schedule of maintenance following initial construction: N/A

b. Mowing frequency and timing: N/A

c. Herbicide applications (chemical used, method, timing, frequency): N/A

d. Irrigation plan (include source of water): N/A

e. Passive water control and instream structure description and required maintenance (type and frequency): N/A

11) Performance standards a. Description of the performance standards used (include metrics for determining project success): Riparian: N/A

Stream Channel: MDC will conduct periodic monitoring of the new bridge to ensure that aquatic organism passage is being maintained. This will be accomplished through both photo documentation as well as Rainbow Trout snorkeling observation surveys conducted at three year intervals. Reference stream(s) used (if any): Crane Creek on upper Wire Road Conservation Area. b.

Describe how the performance standards relate to the objectives of the mitigation site (include description of the desired resource type, expected functions or services being

measured, or any other applicable metrics): The new bridge will be inspected periodically by MDC staff to ensure it is serving its function of maintaining a navigable roadway as well as preventing any aquatic organism passage barriers. 12) Describe the method and frequency of project monitoring to determine when performance standards are being met (project site must be monitored for an appropriate period not less than 5 years after initial construction/planting), who will be conducting the monitoring, and the frequency monitoring reports will be submitted: The project site will be monitored annually for aquatic organism passage and photo documentation of the structure. 13) Long-term management plan: a. Describe how the project site will be managed after performance standards have been met: Stone County will be responsible for future maintenance of the bridge as will be specified in a Memorandum of Agreement. b. Annual cost estimate for management: $ Responsibility of Stone County. c. Funding mechanisms will be used to finance long term management (including responsible party: Responsibility of Stone County. d. Long term management responsibilities transferred to (include description of their long term management plan and a written stewardship commitment that includes a financing plan): Responsibility of Stone County. 14) Adaptive management plan (due to inability to construct project in accordance with approved plans, monitoring revealing that the project is not meeting performance standards, remedial measures resulting in project modifications, design changes, revisions to maintenance requirements, revised monitoring, etc): a. Description of strategy to address unforeseen changes in the project: If the project fails MDC will reevaluate and conveyance for the stream channel will be maintained. b. Party (ies) responsible for implementing adaptive management: If failure in the project is due to an act of God then the agencies will assist with adaptive management, reevaluate, and conveyance will be maintained. 15) Financial Assurances: The MCHF has previously demonstrated its ability to fund good stream projects and is committed to the installation, monitoring, and long term management of its compensatory mitigation projects. Since an important basis for project selection is a project's fit into MDC's statewide stream management plan, a commitment of the biological, engineering, and legal resources of MDC also accompanies each project. In addition to MDC's support, the MCHF has incorporated financial assurances into its cost-per-credit and will retain financial assurances not to exceed 10% of each project's estimated completion cost to establish a continuous contingency fund balance of $250,000.00. 16) Total cost of the project is estimated at $ 136,500.

JOINT PUBLIC NOTICE US Army Corps of Engineers® Little Rock District

CORPS OF ENGINEERS ­ STATE OF MISSOURI Application Number: 2015-00072 Date: May 11, 2015 Comments Due: June 10, 2015

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: Comments are invited on the work described below. Please see the Public Involvement section for details on submitting comments. Point of Contact. If additional information is desired, please contact the project manager, Rocky Presley, telephone number: (501) 340-1390, mailing address: Little Rock District Corps of Engineers, Branson Regulatory Field Office, 4600 Hwy 165, Branson, Missouri 65616, email address: Rocky.L.Presley@usace.army.mil. An electronic copy of Mitigation Plan No. SSTF1003-Stone County can be viewed on the Little Rock District, Regulatory Division webpage at http://www.swl.usace. army.mil/Missions/Regulatory/PublicNotices.aspx or a hard copy can be obtained from the Corps of Engineers through the contact information listed above. Project Information. Pursuant to Section 404 of the Clean Water Act (33 U.S. Code 1344), notice is hereby given that Missouri Conservation Heritage Foundation (MCHF) P.O. Box 366 Jefferson City, Missouri 65102-0366 proposes to establish Mitigation Plan No. SSTF1003-Stone County, entitled the Roundhouse Road Bridge Replacement. The mitigation plan would be established under MCHF's Stream Stewardship Trust Fund (SSTF) In-lieu Fee Instrument. A draft copy of the mitigation plan has been reviewed by the Interagency Review Team (IRT), which is composed of pertinent state and Federal resource agencies. The project site is on Roundhouse Road at an existing crossing of Crane Creek, in the NE ¼ of section 30, T. 26 N., R. 24 W., Stone County, Missouri. The purpose of the project is to improve aquatic organism passage in the upper reaches of Crane Creek, which supports a high profile wild trout management area. A self-sustaining population of Rainbow Trout thrives in the project area. Maintaining and improving fish passage to the headwaters of Crane Creek is critical to the continued success of this fishery. The mitigation project consists of removing an existing bridge and replacing it with a new concrete clear-span bridge. The existing bridge is a span bridge, but has remnants of an old low water crossing beneath it which create a barrier to fish passage during low flows. The new bridge would be constructed on the same road alignment as the existing crossing. In addition to improving fish passage, the bridge replacement would improve sediment transport and increase stream stability within this stream reach. If approved by the Corps, in consultation with the IRT, the project would provide a total of 3,861 stream mitigation credits. The project site is located within the Wire Road Conservation Area managed by the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC). Stone County and MDC will be partnering for the project -1-

completion; the County would install and maintain the bridge and MDC would provide financial and technical assistance. The location and general plan for the proposed work are shown on the enclosed sheets. Water Quality Certification. If authorized, this project would meet the conditions of a nationwide permit, which presently has certification under Section 401 of the Clean Water Act (33 USC 1341) in compliance with applicable effluent limitations and water quality standards. Certification expresses the state's opinion that the discharge will not violate applicable water quality standards. Cultural Resources. A Corps staff archeologist will review topographic maps, the National Register of Historic Places, and other data on reported sites in the area. The District Engineer invites responses to this public notice from Native American Nations or tribal governments; Federal, State, and local agencies; historical and archeological societies; and other parties likely to have knowledge of or concerns with historic properties in the area. Endangered Species. Our preliminary determination is that the proposed activity will not affect listed Endangered Species or their critical habitat. A copy of this notice is being furnished to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and appropriate state agencies and constitutes a request to those agencies for information on whether any listed or proposed-to-be-listed endangered or threatened species may be present in the area which would be affected by the proposed activity. Floodplain. We are providing copies of this notice to appropriate floodplain officials in accordance with 44 CFR Part 60 (Floodplain Management Regulations Criteria for Land Management and Use) and Executive Order 11988 on Floodplain Management. Section 404(b)(1) Guidelines. The evaluation of activities to be authorized under this permit which involves the discharge of dredged or fill material will include application of guidelines promulgated by the Administrator, Environmental Protection Agency, under authority of Section 404(b) of the Clean Water Act. These guidelines are contained in 40 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 230. Public Involvement. Any interested party is invited to submit to the above-listed POC written comments or objections relative to the proposed work on or before June 10, 2015. Substantive comments, both favorable and unfavorable, will be accepted and made a part of the record and will receive full consideration in determining whether this work would be in the public interest. The decision to approve the mitigation plan and verify compliance with a nationwide permit will be based on an evaluation of the probable impact including the cumulative impacts of the proposed activity on the public interest. That decision will reflect the national concern for both protection and utilization of important resources. The benefit which reasonably may be expected to accrue from the proposal must be balanced against its reasonably foreseeable detriments. All factors which may be relevant to the proposal will be considered including the cumulative effects thereof; among those are conservation, economics, aesthetics, general environmental concerns, wetlands, historic properties, fish and wildlife values, flood hazards, floodplain values, land use, navigation, shoreline erosion and accretion, recreation, water supply and conservation, water

-2-

quality, energy needs, safety, food and fiber production, mineral needs, considerations of property ownership and, in general, the needs and welfare of the people. The Corps of Engineers is soliciting comments from the public; Federal, state, and local agencies and officials; Indian Tribes; and other interested parties in order to consider and evaluate the impacts of this proposed activity. Any comments received will be considered by the Corps of Engineers to determine whether to issue, modify, condition or deny a permit for this mitigation plan. To make this decision, comments are used to assess impacts on endangered species, historic properties, water quality, general environmental effects, and the other public interest factors listed above. Comments are used in the preparation of an Environmental Assessment and/or an Environmental Impact Statement pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act. Comments are also used to determine the need for a public hearing and to determine the overall public interest of the proposed activity. Any person may request in writing within the comment period specified in this notice that a public hearing be held to consider this application. Requests for public hearings shall state, with particularity, the reasons for holding a public hearing. The District Engineer will determine if the issues raised are substantial and whether a hearing is needed for making a decision. NOTE: The mailing list for this Public Notice is arranged by state and county(s) where the project is located, and also includes any addressees who have asked to receive copies of all public notices. Please discard notices that are not of interest to you. If you have no need for any of these notices, please advise us so that your name can be removed from the mailing list.
