Applicant:

United Water New York Inc
360 W Nyack Rd
West Nyack, NY 10994 -1743

Facility:

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Haverstraw, Rockland County


Project Description:

The United Water New York Haverstraw Pilot Plant Project (the "Pilot Plant Project") is proposed to be located on the Hudson River at Grassy Point and also on Carol Road, Town of Haverstraw, Rockland County, New York. The applicant proposes to install a temporary pump station and water intake pipe structure onto the bed of the Hudson River. The pipe will withdraw and carry Hudson River water through conveyance piping to a small-scale, experimental treatment works plant, which will be located in an existing warehouse on Carol Road, Haverstraw. The Pilot Plant Project is proposed by the applicant in order to provide data to be used in the planning of the proposed Haverstraw Water Supply Project, which is currently undergoing environmental review in accordance with the State Environmnetal Quality Review Act. The Pilot Plant Project is expected to be in operation for a period of 12-18 months and will be completely decommissioned at the close of this period.

Installation of the water intake pipe will involve placement of a 735 linear foot, six-inch diameter intake pipe, with a wedge wire screen onto the bed of the Hudson River. A marker buoy will mark its terminus. The water intake pipe would be sandwiched with jersey barriers and sand bags for approximately the first 180 linear feet of pipe. It will be secured with 53 pyramid anchors for its remaining length. Approximately 33 cubic yards of fill is proposed for installation of the water intake pipe in the Hudson River. When operating, the rate of water withdrawal will be between 170 and 300 gallons per minute.

The water intake pipe will carry water from the Hudson River to an on-site pump station where it will be conveyed to a six-inch raw water force main that leads to the site of the pilot plant's treatment works. The treatment works will be located in an existing warehouse on Carol Road, approximately 1.5 miles from the water intake site on the Hudson River. Conveyance piping will follow an existing United Water New York utility easement path south along Grassy Point/Beach Road and will be attached directly to the bridge over the Minisceongo Creek to prevent direct stream disturbance. The line will then go further south through the same United Water New York easement, traversing approximately 160 linear feet of a mapped, tidal grammanoid vegetated wetland before turning west along Ecology Lane and then turning south along Carol Road to the site of the treatment works. The conveyance pipe will run along an existing raised road bed/shoulder that traverses the mapped tidal wetland area and will not actually be buried in wetland areas. Excavation along the road bed will involve removal of approximately 27 cubic yards and placement of approximately 27 cubic yards of fill, resulting in no net gain in fill in the disturbed area.

This project has been issued Nationwide Permit (NWP) Number 12, Utility Line Discharges, from the US Army Corp of Engineers under NWP #12, NAN-2002-01067-ESP for the activities described above.
