Project Reviews in Virginia
Step 3 - State Coordination
Determine whether a documented occurrence of any listed, proposed or candidate species is within the action area by contacting both VDGIF and VDCR-DNH; each agency maintains a different database and has differing expertise and/or regulatory responsibility. Add any VDGIF and VDCR-DNH documentation to the project review package.
(A). If either agency provides documentation that a federally listed, proposed or candidate species is present within the action area, add “species present” under the conclusion column for the appropriate species on the species conclusions table. If the conclusion for all species on your list is “species present,” go to Step 5. Otherwise, continue to Step 4.
(B). If there are no documented occurrences of a federally listed, proposed or candidate species within the action area and/or the State agencies do not mention a species on your list, leave the conclusions column blank in the species conclusions table and continue to Step 4.
