Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Rensselaer County - The Town of East Greenbush, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed East Greeenbush Marina. The FEIS for the East Greenbush Marina can be viewed on the Town's website at: www.eastgreenbush.org.

The action involves the development of a full service marina facility designed to provide recreational access to the Hudson River for boaters who reside within the Town of East Greenbush as well as the general public. The marina will include three floating docks with 84 boat slips, fuel pumps, parking spaces for 174 automobiles and a boat launch ramp. Six buildings will be constructed on site, including four boat/ RV storage buildings, one building containing a repair shop, one quick launch facility (which includes storage racks for 96 boats) and one building containing an office, ship store, laundry and restroom/shower facility for boaters. The three docks include a haul out service dock at the lift wells, one dock with 20 slips at the launch ramp area and one main dock with 64 slips. A boat slip will be dedicated to the Town of East Greenbush Police Deparrtment/Fire Departments for its use as a public service. The facility will include a pump-out service for boat sanitary waste which will be stored in a 1,500 gallon tank for disposal. The facility will provide fuel for boaters. Water will be provided by a well developed on the site. Site-generated sanitary sewage will be disposed of in an in-ground system. Stormwater will be managed on-site in accordance with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) regulations. Parking for 174 vehicles will be provided, including five handicapped spaces, as well as 25 trailer spaces. In order to create sufficient water depth, dredging the Hudson River will be required. Some of the dredged material is contaminated with PCBs in excess of Federal standards and will therefore be disposed of in accordance with federal regulations. Access will be from Riverside Avenue Extension. No off-site improvements are required to serve the project. The project is located on Riverside Avenue in the Town of East Greenbush, New York.
