Schenectady County

Applicant:

Joseph P Serth

Facility:

Serth Property
216 Batter St
Mariaville, NY

Application ID:

4-4220-00194/00005

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Duanesburg, Schenectady County


Project Description:

The applicant has an existing concrete/gravel boat launch ramp extending into Mariaville Lake and proposes to extend the concrete section of the ramp an additional 8 feet into the lake. The area of the ramp where concrete will be added is currently constructed with washed gravel fill which will be removed to accommodate the concrete. The additional concrete is requested as the gravel portion has not provided the support/traction required to use the ramp and has resulted in trailers/vehicles not being able to get out of the water after launching/loading boats. The new concrete ramp will be pre-cast in sections at an upland location and lowered in place on the lake bed. The applicant also proposes to place additional stone rip rap along the sides of the ramp to prevent scour and erosion.
