Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands

Project is Located:

Saugerties, Ulster County


Project Description:

The Department of Environmental Conservation has tentatively determined to issue the above referenced applicant a Freshwater Wetland permit. The permit would authorize a two to three foot, temporary draw down of the impounded pool on the Esopus Creek behind Diamond Mills dam, which is bordered by NYS Regulated Freshwater Wetland S-8, Class II.

The purpose of this temporary draw down is to stop flow over Diamond Mills dam, exposing the face of the dam so that structural integrity can be evaluated and investigative borings at the toe of the dam can be preformed. These steps are necessary in order to inform the planning of the eventual, overall rehabilitation of this dam. Rehabilitation is necessary to bring the dam into compliance with current dam safety standards, as required by the Order on Consent that DEC has entered into with the applicant to mandate the repair of this dam.

The draw down of the impounded pool will last no longer than three weeks in duration. DEC staff have determined that there will be minimal impacts to the Freshwater Wetland and associated habitat if this work is preformed prior to the amphibious hibernation period that typically occurs in the fall season.
