The required information that must be presented in a Facilities Plan includes the following:

  • Present and future land use and growth trends in the planning and project areas
  • Topography in the planning and project areas
  • Descriptions of the hydrology and hydrogeology in the planning and project areas including a description of the aquifers and surface and groundwater quantity, quality, and users
  • Descriptions of the geology in the planning and project areas including a description of major features in the project area and physiographic provinces
  • Descriptions of soils in the planning and project areas including descriptions, their respective limitations, and soil maps
  • Descriptions of historical and archeological features in the planning and project areas
  • Identification of listed threatened, endangered, or otherwise protected flora and fauna species in the planning and project areas particularly in the immediate vicinity of any portion of the proposed project and downstream from a proposed discharge point
  • A discussion of the community┬┤s potable water supply including the source(s) and location(s) of points of water withdrawal, the potential for contamination of the water supply by the proposed project, and possible actions to prevent adverse impacts
  • A description of temporary and permanent mitigative actions potentially necessitated by the construction activities associated with the proposed project that will reduce noise, dust, odor, etc. and avoid the erosion and sedimentation of nearby streams and water bodies during construction activities through the use of silt fence, straw bales, holding ponds, revegetation, etc.
  • A discussion of ambient air quality in the planning and project areas, the potential impacts to air quality resulting from the proposed project, and possible actions to prevent adverse impacts
  • A discussion of the potential for the proposed project to disturb, damage, or adversely affect historical or archaeological sites or prime and/or unique agricultural land during construction activities and possible actions to prevent adverse impacts
  • Identification of any designated Wild or Scenic Rivers in the planning and project areas, the potential for impacts to those rivers resulting from construction of the proposed project, and possible actions to prevent potential adverse impacts
  • A discussion of the potential for the proposed project to disturb, damage, or adversely affect fish and wildlife and the mitigative actions that may be useful in preventing the potential adverse impacts
  • The locations and descriptions of jurisdictional wetlands in the project area, a discussion of the potential for the proposed project to disturb, damage, or adversely affect those areas, and mitigative actions to prevent potential adverse impacts
  • A description of the potential stream crossings necessitated by the proposed project, the appropriate required permits relating to stream crossings and their locations (ARAP, TVA, US Army Corps of Engineers Section 10 and/or 404 Permits, etc.), and possible mitigative actions to prevent potential adverse impacts at the stream crossings
  • A floodplain map indicating the proposed project┬┤s location, a discussion of whether the proposed project will be below the 100-year flood elevation, and a discussion of possible mitigative actions to prevent potential adverse impacts caused by flooding
  • A discussion of the potential impacts to residential areas during construction including any potential for the significant displacement of the population and a discussion of mitigative actions that could be undertaken in order to prevent the alteration of the character of existing residential neighborhoods.
