Public Notice
Environmental Permit

PURPOSE OF NOTICE: To seek public comment on a draft permit from the Department of Environmental Quality for the withdrawal of groundwater in Isle of Wight County, Virginia.
PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD: June 3, 2020 to July 3, 2020
PERMIT NAME: Groundwater Withdrawal Permit issued by DEQ, under the authority of the State Water Control Board
APPLICANT NAME, ADDRESS AND PERMIT NUMBER: Rescue Water Works; P.O. Box 94, Rescue, VA 23424; #GW0053701
NAME AND LOCATION OF WATER WITHDRAWAL: Rescue Water Works; Carter Lane, Rescue, VA 23424

PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Rescue Water Works has applied for a reissuance of a permit for the Town of Rescue in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. The permit would allow the applicant to withdraw an average of 12,602 of gallons per day. The groundwater withdrawal will support the town’s potable water needs. The proposed withdrawal will utilize the Potomac aquifer at a depth between 384 feet to 515 feet below the land surface at the withdrawal site. An aquifer is a body of rock or layer of sediment in the ground in which groundwater is stored and transported. DEQ has made a tentative decision to issue the permit.

AFFECTED AREA: Computer modeling predicts that the aquifer will not experience one foot of drawdown due to the withdrawal.
