ENB Region 8 Completed Applications 03/24/2010

Ontario County

Applicant:

Rochester Gas & Electric Corp
89 East Ave
Rochester, NY 14649

Facility:

Sucker Brook
79 Clark St
Canandaigua, NY

Application ID:

8-3202-00027/00003

Permit(s) Applied for:

Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Canandaigua, Ontario County


Project Description:

The Sucker Brook Sediment Remediation Project is associated with the Clark Street MGP Remediation Project (Site Number V00591-8), which Rochester Gas and Electric Co.(RG&E) is implementing under an approved NYSDEC Remedial Action Work Plan under a Voluntary Clean-Up Agreement or VCA (Index No. B-8-0535-98-07). The project is located in and along Sucker Brook, a Class C stream, between Clark and Parrish Streets in the City of Canandaigua. RG&E proposes to remediate, to the greatest extent practicable, sediments in Sucker Brook. The property at 79 Clark Street is currently occupied by RG&E's Canandaigua Operations Center and prior to RG&E the site was used by the Canandaigua Gas Light Company beginning about 1853. From 1853 to about 1913 the site was used for a manufactured gas plant (MGP) that provided gas for the residents of the City of Canandaigua. The activities associated with the MGP and underground fuel storage tanks and related piping that were operated by RG&E have resulted in soil, sediment, and groundwater impacts. Land side impacts have already been remediated by excavation and removal of the impacted soils and the onsite treatment of a small amount of groundwater. The project for which a Water Quality Certification has been requested by RG&E is to remediate known impacts to sediments in Sucker Brook both on and near the RG&E property and further downstream near the Parrish Street Bridge. At the work site located on or near to the RG&E facility there will be three areas where impacted material will be excavated and unimpacted material will be placed to restore the areas. These areas include: the stream bed, where the maximum area disturbed will be 3,530 square feet and the maximum volume of material to be excavated and replaced will be 530 cubic yards; the stream bank, where the maximum area disturbed will be 4,675 square feet and the maximum volume of material excavated and replaced will be 1,570 cubic yards; and the bench area, a working platform needed for equipment access and to maintain slope stability, where the maximum area disturbed would be 9,119 square feet and where the maximum volume of material excavated and replaced will be 1,670 cubic yards. Sucker Brook's streamflow will be pumped around cofferdam-isolated work areas. The restoration work will also result in the stabilization of eroded stream banks now located in the affected stream section. At the Parrish Bridge site, there will be no disturbance to the stream bank and the maximum area of stream bed to be disturbed will be only 126 square feet, with a maximum volume of only 3 cubic yards of stream bed excavated and replaced.
