Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries (DGIF): DGIF is the primary wildlife and freshwater management agency in the Commonwealth, and has legal jurisdiction over state or federally endangered or threatened species, excluding insects and plants. VDGIF provides environmental analysis of projects or permit applications coordinated through VMRC, DEQ and the Corps of Engineers. The department determines likely impacts on fish and wildlife resources and habitats and recommends appropriate measures to avoid, reduce, or mitigate for those impacts.
Virginia Department of Historic Resources (VDHR): The Department represents the interests of the Commonwealth and its citizens in preserving Virginia’s cultural heritage. VDHR assists the Corps of Engineers with identifying historic properties assessing effects upon them and considering alternatives to reduce, avoid or mitigate a project’s impact on historic resources.
