WallacePancher Group provided environmental, mitigation design, monitoring and permitting services for the proposed LaBelle Dock Site (also known as the Unloading and Transfer Facility and Rail Siding project) located in Luzerne Township, Fayette County, Pennsylvania.
The project provided a critical stockpile, processing and transportation hub for refined coal coming from the Cumberland Underground Mine operations. The project encompassed a narrow rail siding corridor adjacent to the existing Norfolk Southern railroad along with a small pad area located within several existing mooring blocks on the Monongahela River. To offset stream and wetland impacts from the project, WallacePancher Group prepared
mitigation stream and wetland mitigation plans and construction oversight and compliance monitoring for approximately 550 linear feet of stream restoration/stabilization and 2+ acres of PEM/PSS/PFO wetland creation at an adjacent site.
