Greene County

Applicant:

Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corp
284 South Ave
Poughkeepsie, NY 12601 -4838

Facility:

Application ID:

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters

Project is Located:

Catskill, Greene County


Project Description:

Central Hudson Gas & Electric Corporation (Central Hudson) is proposing to remediate the former Catskill manufactured gas plant (MGP) located along Water Street in Catskill, New York. The work is being completed pursuant to a signed Brownfield Cleanup Agreement between Central Hudson and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.

The remediation involves the removal of contaminated soils in upland areas and the dredging of contaminated sediments within an approximately 19,892 square feet area within the Catskill Creek. It is estimated that 2,500 cubic yards of contaminated sediment will be removed from the creek and 6,700 cubic yards of contaminated soil will be removed from the upland areas.

To facilitate the removal of contaminated soils and sediments, the project will require the installation of a secant wall on-site parallel to Catskill Creek. Following the removal of contaminated sediments and soils, pre-existing contours will be established by placing clean fill. The project will involve the restoration of approximately 140 linear feet of stream bank that will be impacted by the remediation activities. A combination of a geoweb and a marine mattress will be used on the shoreline to stabilize the banks. Native plants will be installed on the stream banks to re-establish vegetation.
