Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Shandaken, Ulster County


Project Description:

The Town proposes to remove gravel and sediment from the Stony Clove Creek [NYS Water Index # H-171-45, Class B(ts)], from a section of stream extending approximately 690 feet upstream from the NYS Route 214 bridge. Approximately 2,700 cubic yards of material will be removed from the channel with excavation to no greater depth than the existing right channel depth. The goal of this project is to lower the flood stage waters at the Route 214 bridge and upstream to the firehouse in order to decrease the potential for flooding within the Hamlet of Phoenicia for a flood event similar to two recent flood events that occurred in late 2010. The project design is based upon an extensive modeling analysis. The results of this model indicate that sediment and gravel in this section will be re-deposited and return to existing elevations prior to the removal project. The time for this re-deposition of sediment will be contigent upon the extent and magnitude of future storm events.
