Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Article 25 Tidal Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Queens, Queens County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to construct a new 3.1-million-gross-square-foot Police Academy on an approximately 35-acre, city-owned site in College Point, Queens. Formerly NYPD's vehicle impound lot, the site is entirely asphalt-paved with the exception of an approximately 1,500-foot, part tidal, part non-tidal, man-made drainage ditch. The project includes ecological and design improvements to the NYSDEC-regulated ditch. The on-site drainage ditch currently contains two earthen vehicular bridges. Proposed regulated activities include three new pedestrian crossings, modifications to the two existing bridges, bank stabilization, restoration and ecological enhancement activities. Drainage ditch restoration will include stepped gabion baskets for new plant materials, and removal and replacement of unsuitable soil with topsoil. Native seed mixes and plants will be used in both wetland creation zones and upland areas. The project also includes the creation of meanders and the establishment of native upland and wetland plant communities. Ditch restoration/enhancement activities also include engineered and natural measures to improve the water quality of the ditch and Flushing Bay. Proposed drainage ditch activities are anticipated to result in a net creation of 15,971 sf of open water, and proposed and modified ditch crossings are anticipated to shade 10,724 sf of open water. The minor shading impacts will be mitigated by proposed meanders along the banks and upland planting zones, which will improve the potential for ecological diversity through the establishment native plant communities. The project site is bounded by 28th Avenue to the north, Ulmer Street and the Southbound Whitestone Expressway Service Road to the east, 31st Avenue to the south and College Point Boulevard to the west.
