GRHA Comments to USACE Regarding Creve Coeur Lake Apartment Complex proposal
Dear Mr. LaMontagne,
Great Rivers Habitat Alliance (GRHA) represents a group of landowners and citizens concerned about the current floodplain development trends within the Confluence. Our MISSION: Protecting the 100-year Confluence floodplain for the benefit of wildlife, historic waterfowling, agriculture, clean water and people.
GRHA was founded in 2002 to directly combat the growing consumption of the 100-year Confluence floodplain through commercial development, address issues affecting wetland habitat, and promote sensible use of floodplains in the Confluence region of the Mississippi, Missouri, and Illinois rivers through policy, protection, conservation, public awareness and education.
We fundamentally disagree with any development within the 100-year floodplain and find the Creve Coeur Lake Apartment Complex proposal located at 12000 Creve Coeur Mill Rd and 1 Gulfport Drive particularly concerning and recommend denial of this Clean Water Act Section 404
application and permitting for the following reasons:
