ENB Region 3 Completed Applications 08/24/2011

Orange County

Applicant:

New Jersey Dept of Environmental Protection (NJDEP)
Mail Code 501-04
PO Box 420
Trenton, NJ 08625 -0420

Facility:

Greenwood Lake Dam
E Shore Rd
Greenwood Lake, NY

Application ID:

3-3354-00694/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands

Project is Located:

Warwick, Orange County


Project Description:

This project proposes a fall/winter drawdown of Greenwood Lake as part of a "Water Level Management Plan" for multi-purposes including aquatic nuisance vegetation control and shoreline maintenance and repair activities. Greenwood Lake is an impounded water body located within Passaic County, New Jersey and Orange County, New York. The state of New Jersey owns the dam and is responsible for the drawdown. Implementation of the management plan is a collaborative effort by the Greenwood Lake Commission and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection. The project will result in a drawdown of a maximum of five feet and is scheduled to commence on October 11, 2011 with refilling of the lake starting on February 15, 2012, subject to public water supply considerations. The drawdown will affect NYS regulated wetland GR-5 (class 2) located at the head of the northeast arm of the lake and will result in exposure of the lake bottom in this arm and also the northwest arm as well as areas along the entire shoreline extending out 25-30 feet. The management plan calls for a four year interval for drawdowns. Drawdowns of Greenwood Lake have been conducted periodically since the early 1990`s and the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) has previously conducted a coordinated SEQR review and made a determination of non-significance for this project in 2005 which remains in effect because there have been no changes to this project since the 2005 significance determination.

Individuals, municipalities and other parties wishing to conduct work at the shoreline and within the exposed lake bottom in New York waters will require permit approval from the NYS DEC. An expedited permit process for routine maintenance work will be available.
