Public Notice

National Grid Generation LLC: E.F. Barrett Power Station Rescind Notice of Complete Application

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) has evaluated the comments received in response to the Notice of Complete Application published in the Environmental Notice Bulletin (ENB) dated December 23, 2009, for the above referenced facility. NYS DEC's December 23, 2009 Notice of Complete Application indicated that it is proposing to renew and modify the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit for the E.F. Barrett facility. The purpose of the modification was to specify the facility upgrades necessary to implement NYS DEC's staff's Best Technology Available (BTA) determination. NYS DEC's Notice of Complete Application was predicated, in part, on its classification of the action as Type II under the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQR; Article 8 of the Environmental Conservation Law with implementing regulations at 6 NYCRR Part 617), meaning that it was not subject to review under SEQR. NYS DEC has determined that the renewal and modification of the SPDES permit for the E.F. Barrett Power Station should have been classified as a Type I action under SEQR rather than as a Type II action. As a result, NYS DEC is rescinding the above referenced Notice of Complete Application published in the Environmental Notice Bulletin (ENB) dated December 23, 2009 pending compliance with all applicable sections of SEQR.

The project is located at 1 McCarthy Road, Island Park, Town of Hempstead, New York.

The plan provides for natural resource protection through: management measures for the low salt marsh, maritime beach ecosystems and Fresh Pond; control strategies for invasive species management; and management strategies for successional fields, woodlands and rare bird species that nest in the park. Recreation facility development recommendations include creating a permit system to allow launch of car-top watercraft to provide enhanced recreational access to Long Island Sound; and expanding, marking, and improving the existing trail system, and closure of certain trails in appropriate locations. Measures to protect and interpret cultural and historic resources include historic structures and landscape reports, Archeological Resource Survey, rehabilitating several historic gardens, opening buildings for historic interpretation, stabilizing and rehabilitating the Greenhouses to be used for passive recreation or interpretation, seeking proposals from potential licensees to operate two vacant structures including the Main House, as well as consideration of opening these buildings for interpretation and exhibit space. Park operations, maintenance and infrastructure improvements include improving the vehicular and pedestrian access within and to the park including formalizing the existing overflow parking area as the new main parking lot, relocating the contact station, making stormwater and landscaping improvements to the main lot, and widening the main entrance road with a landscaped median separating traffic entering and exiting the park; developing three pervious parking areas to improve access within the park; reconfiguring the Farm Group area including creating a Visitor Center and relocating the park office and public restrooms; and improving the equestrian center to be more consistent with the historic features of the park. The plan also proposes developing written guidelines for special events that are appropriate in the park. The Final Plan/Final EIS describes potential environmental impacts and mitigation of those that may be adverse. Areas that have been evaluated with respect to impacts include: transportation/access, land, recreation/open space, water resources, biological resources/ecology, cultural resources, scenic/aesthetic resources and public health.
