On March 17, 2014, Brookfield Sunset LLC (applicant) submitted a Department of the Army (DA) permit application for the discharge of dredged and/or fill material into waters of the United States (WOUS) associated with the construction of the proposed Amoruso Ranch project. On December 22, 2014, the U.S Army Corps of Engineers, Sacramento District (Corps) determined that the proposed discharge of fill material into WOUS may result in significant impacts to the environment, and that the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is necessary. A revised DA permit application was submitted by the applicant on October 30, 2014. The applicant proposes to implement a large-scale, mixed-use, mixed density, master planned community. The proposed project consists of approximately 347 acres designated for residential use that would contain 2,827 dwelling units (in a mix of low, medium and high density), 51 acres for a village center and community commercial uses, 12 acres for public/quasi-public space containing a fire station and school, 161 acres of parks and natural avoided areas of open space reserve and/or preserve, and 82 acres of associated infrastructure containing roads and other public transportation corridors. Approximately 17 acres of the adjacent Al Johnson Wildlife Area property would be used to construct a 325-foot long drainage ditch. No other off-site improvements are included in the proposed project. A segment of the future Placer Parkway would be constructed by others on 49 acres of the site and is not part of this permit application. The proposed project site is approximately 674 acres and contains approximately 38.86 acres of WOUS, including: Vernal pools; seasonal wetlands; University Creek; and, grasslands. The proposed project would involve the discharge of fill material into approximately 18.64 acres of WOUS, including vernal pools, seasonal wetlands, and open water pond. The proposed project may also result in indirect impacts to WOUS, including wetlands.

The DoD published a final rule on December 31, 2014 (79 FR 78707-78714). This rule makes correcting amendments to the previously published final rule to clarify that only the replacement of lost or stolen rental durable equipment is excluded from coverage. Additionally, in the final rule, DoD mistakenly used asterisks in a paragraph it was revising in its entirety. To correct this mistake and ensure that all revisions are appropriately codified, these correcting amendments set out the full text of the impacted paragraph.
