Purpose of the meeting
A public hearing to receive comments on the proposed denial of a Virginia Water Protection Permit application for Cranston's Mill Pond. Cranston’s Mill Pond, LLC, has applied for a Virginia Water Protection (VWP) Permit for the Cranston’s Mill Pond Raw Water Supply Project. The project would be located on Cranston’s Mill Pond Road (County Rt. 632) approximately one-half mile south of the intersection of Cranston’s Mill Pond Road with Chickahominy Road (County Rt. 631). The application requested authorization to withdraw surface water from Cranston’s Mill Pond, an impoundment located on Yarmouth Creek in James City County, Virginia. The application requests the withdrawal of up to 15 million gallons per day and a maximum annual withdrawal of 3.285 billion gallons. The withdrawal would affect Yarmouth Creek, a tributary to the Chickahominy River in the James River watershed. DEQ’s preliminary decision is to deny the permit application. The public comment period runs from November 5, 2020 through December 22, 2020. Any changes to the public meeting will be announced through the Virginia Regulatory Town Hall.
