Has Raised its
Ugly Head Again! 

Incomplete Permit Application
by Dutra Haystack Asphalt Plant

The Dutra Haystack Asphalt Plant company have requested the US Army Corps of Engineers and the Regional Water Quality Control Board to write a “No Permit Necessary” letter regarding wetlands on their site to Sonoma County. These federal permits protect our River and wetlands under the Clean Water Act (404). 

These permits are the last barrier to Dutra starting construction.

Dutra falsely claims that with a modest reconfiguration of the asphalt factory, no regulated wetlands on their site would be filled by construction and activity of the asphalt plant. They would then ask Sonoma County to issue their grading permit to begin construction of the factory.

Dutra is piecemealing the impacts of their project as originally described and permitted by Sonoma County. They’re now trying to tactically ignore over 11 acres of wetlands on the southern portion of their property. However, the grading, removal of some 24,000 cubic yards of soil, and recontouring of this lower parcel for mitigation wetlands and control of stormwater runoff does indeed require a federal permit. The soil would be hauled to the asphalt factory site, to raise the elevation there out of the floodplain as required.

 

Dutra is trying to tactically ignore over 11 acres of wetlands on the southern portion of their property across the Shollenberger park.

URGENT! PLEASE SEND A LETTER expressing your objection to the Dutra’s most recent efforts to evade their legal and environmental requirements for this location on our Petaluma River and Wetlands, directly across from Shollenberger Park. 

We still say: WRONG PLANT - WRONG PLACE
