Phone: (518) 891-4050, ext. 207

APA Contact: Thomas E. Saehrig

APA Project Number: 2010-0205

Project Title: Sacandaga Hudson Advisory Council

Location: On the Sacandaga River in the Town of Hadley, New York.

For Adirondack Park Agency: Comment Period Ends: September 1, 2011

Project Description: The project is briefly described as follows: The variance request involves the construction of three wave features within the mean high water mark of the Sacandaga River to enhance recreational opportunities for whitewater paddle sports along a 2.7 ± mile section of the River.

The wave features will be constructed across the width of the river at three locations including, the old Stewarts Bridge site, downstream from the Town of Hadley Whitewater Park and at the Bow Bridge site.

Access improvements will be made at the Town of Hadley Whitewater Park at the water's edge. The plan does not call for creation of whitewater features at this location, rather it provides an access point for the whitewater waves a short distance downstream.

The proposed wave features have been designed and will be constructed with grouted boulders to provide adequate subsurface flow cutoff and a deep energy dissipation pool downstream. This construction method will reduce the potential for structural failure and increase hydraulic performance of the feature.

Construction access will be provided at two locations. Access to Whitewater Park, the Middle Wave, and Lower Wave will be through the southern portion of Whitewater Park where there is a natural, gradual slope. Access to the River for the construction to the Upper Wave will be on a road owned by Brookfield Renewable Power.
