Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Municipal SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Queens, Queens County


Project Description:

A proposed modification is required by a recent settlement agreement entered into by DEC, and requires that this SPDES permit modification replaces the existing Long-Term Control Plan condition in the SPDES permit with the following language:

Operation of all combined sewer overflows in this permit shall comply with the water quality standards for: settleable solids, pathogens, bacteria, and floatables. Any existing violations of these standards are addressed by compliance with the terms of Consent Order C02-20110512-25. The terms of that Consent Order set forth the shortest reasonable time to attain compliance with applicable limitations, applicable water quality standards, or other applicable requirements for these or other parameters. This provision does not preclude DEP from seeking a variance from a Water Quality Based Effluent Limit or a Water Quality Standard revision, or preclude DEP from operating CSOs in accordance with a lawfully issued variance or in compliance with a lawfully revised Water Quality Standard. Modifications to the CSO Order on Consent will be publicly noticed for review and comment in accordance with Uniform Procedures Regulations, 6 NYCRR Part 621.7.

This is the only proposed change to the permit, all other limits and conditions will remain the same.

Project is Located:

Project Description:

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey proposes to construct a new six-lane cable-stayed bridge to replace the existing four lane cantilevered truss Goethals Bridge. The bridge would cross the Arthur Kill and connect Staten Island, New York to Elizabeth, New Jersey. The new bridge location, immediately south of the existing bridge, was selected as the environmentally preferred alternative (and the proposed project) after a detailed review of four alternative alignments in the Goethals Bridge Replacement Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The U.S. Coast Guard, in accordance with requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act, prepared the EIS. The Draft EIS was released in May 2009, the Final EIS in August 2010, and the Record of Decision for the EIS in January 2011. The proposed project would address design deficiencies, structural integrity, and roadway congestion issues of the current bridge by providing enhanced safety conditions and upgrading performance capabilities of the regional transportation network.

The new bridge would provide 12-foot wide lanes, five-foot wide inner and 12-foot wide outer lane shoulders, a ten-foot wide sidewalk/bikeway on the north side of the westbound lanes, and a provision for future mass transit. In addition to bridge construction, the project would include new approach structures with similar roadway dimensions as the bridge, replacement of the Travis Branch railroad bridge over I-278 to accommodate the wider roadway, and re-alignment of Gulf Avenue. Post-construction the existing bridge and protective dolphins would be demolished and the construction access road narrowed and left in place for maintenance and security purposes.

Unavoidable combined open water and wetland impacts of 4.929 acres will result from permanent filling of 2.707 acres and temporary filling of 2.222 acres, including 2.061 acres of temporary filling for greater than 6 months and 0.161 acres for less than 6 months. As mitigation for these impacts, the Port Authority would undertake creation of 15.39 acres of mudflat, low marsh/high marsh, and scrub/shrub habitats, and preservation of 3.91 acres of existing high/low marsh and open water habitat at a New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) owned site along Old Place Creek.

To insure that there is no contravention of state water quality standards, the proposed project would include the implementation of a Stormwater Management Plan that would treat runoff from the bridge prior to discharge into the surface waters. The implementation of such a plan, including treatment of stormwater runoff from the new bridge using non-mechanical Best Management Practices to the maximum extent possible, will ensure required removal of suspended solids from stormwater in accordance with applicable New York regulations. The Port Authority and NYSDEC's Division of Water have held discussions concerning the plan. If a new stormwater outfall is needed, an individual State Pollution Discharge Elimination System Permit would be required and a permit application filed for NYSDEC's review and approval.

This project is subject to the Department's Environmental Justice Policy and an enhanced public participation plan has been prepared and accepted as a component of application completeness. As part of the plan, a document repository has been established near the project area that contains application and project related materials. Information on the repository location and other outreach components of the plan is available from the identified DEC contact.

State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) Determination:

A draft environmental impact statement has been prepared on this project and is on file.
