Riverton Residential Development
Davey Resource Group conducted a number of permit preparations to help Riverton Residential Development develop their project on a formerly contaminated site.
Davey Resource Group, Inc. (DRG) was contracted by Thunder Enterprises to conduct stream and wetland determinations, RTE Species Assessments, Phase II Environmental Site Assessment soil sampling, consultation with agencies, preparation of permit applications for TDEC (Individual ARAP) and USACE/TVA (26a), and preparation of Brownfield Voluntary Agreement documents for a residential area of Riverton.
Riverton is a master-planned development located on the Tennessee River-Nickajack Lake Reservoir in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Due to its proximity to a traditionally navigable water (the Tennessee River), the scope of the project included consultation with various state and federal agencies regarding impacts to aquatic resources. DRG Nashville (formerly BDY Environmental) assisted in permitting the development with the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the Tennessee Valley Authority, which required coordination with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and State Historic Preservation Office regarding rare, threatened, and endangered species as well as cultural and historical resources under Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. DRG also implemented the Stream Quantification Tool (SQT) to determine mitigation credit needs for the development.
Restoration Comes To Riverton
The Riverton development site is in a unique setting, located between a former textile mill and yarn factory (which resulted in soil contamination on site), and the Tennessee River-Nickajack Lake Reservoir in Chattanooga. DRG Nashville worked with Thunder Enterprises throughout the planning and permitting stages of the project to ensure that aquatic resources, RTE species, and historical and cultural resources were properly managed, and to help realize the client’s vision of a master-planned residential development on a formerly contaminated site.
