2020-01154-MMJ (Wabasha County, MN) Wabasha County Roadway Project
LETTER OF PERMISSION: Wabasha County proposes to permanently discharge dredged and fill material into 3.11 acres of wetland and along 3,880 linear feet (1.69 acres) of streambed below the plane of the ordinary high water mark (OHWM) of an unnamed tributary and the Zumbro River, in association with the reconstruction of approximately 4.78 miles of CSAH 81 (SAP 079-681-002).
