ENB Region 3 Completed Applications 12/12/2012

Dutchess County

Applicant:

NYC Dept of Environmental Protection
96-05 Horace Harding Expwy 5th Fl
Corona, NY 11368

Facility:

Delaware Aqueduct - Shaft #6 Chelsea Pump Station
River Rd
Chelsea, NY

Application ID:

3-1356-00138/00006

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Wappinger, Dutchess County

Project Description:

The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application to modify a SPDES Industrial permit (#NY027 2663) to include a new surface discharge from an existing outfall (Outfall 001) with a maximum daily flow of one million gallons per day (1 MGD) of treated groundwater to the Hudson River, Class B, at a 20-acre site (East Connection Site, which includes existing Shaft 6 and Hudson River Pump Station), as a component of the NYCDEP Water for the Future Program. The program, which includes the Rondout West Branch Tunnel (RWBT) Repair project with related shaft and outfall construction, is being conducted to ensure an uninterrupted flow of safe drinking water to the City.

The RWBT is known to be leaking up to 35 million gallons per day (MGD). Under the Water for the Future Program, NYCDEP proposes to construct a new segment of by-pass aqueduct around the leaking portion of the RWBT (Roseton crossing of Hudson River). The proposed replacement aqueduct section, including two new access shafts, Shaft 5B (at West Connection Site in Town of Newburgh, Orange County) and Shaft 6B (ECS), will be constructed at depths ranging from 600 to 900 feet. Excavation for the replacement aqueduct section will proceed eastward from the WCS under the Hudson River to the terminus of tunnel boring operations at the ECS. [DEC intends to authorize a similar dewatering discharge to a new outfall at the WCS from construction of the RWBT at Shaft 5B under a separate SPDES Industrial Wastewater and Stormwater Discharge Permit (DEC # 3-9903-00090/00001; SPDES #NY028 0402).]

New Shaft 6B is required to provide access for tunnel boring operations and to complete connection of the new section of aqueduct to existing water supply infrastructure. New construction at the ECS will include excavation staging areas, dewatering treatment plant and stormwater management facilities. Groundwater encountered during excavation of new Shaft 6B will be treated prior to discharge. Also included in the new discharge via Outfall 001 is stormwater collected from two separate outfalls at the ECS, No. 01A (existing) and No. 01B (new), and process wastewater from rock stockpiles and vehicle wash operations. The ECS is located west of River Road in the Town of Wappinger, Dutchess County. A draft permit is available for inspection and comment at the regional office.

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 11 Endangered/Threatened Species (Incidental Take)

Project is Located:

Warwick, Orange County

Project Description:

The applicant, Rosenberg Land Development LLC, proposes to develop a 152-unit active adult community on approximately 16 acres of a 95.77 acre site in the Village of Florida, Orange County. An Incidental Take Permit is required because the Department has determined that the project may result in a "take" or "taking" of the northern cricket frog (Acris crepitans), which is listed as an endangered species pursuant to Environmental Conservation Law Section 11-0535 and 6 NYCRR Part 182. The Department has determined that the disturbance of 16 acres may result in the loss of migratory and/or hibernation habitat for the northern cricket frog. This loss will be offset through compliance with the following mitigation measures to avoid, minimize or mitigate any adverse impacts this endangered species:

  • Erosion and sediment controls to prevent contamination of wetlands
  • Clearing and grubbing limited to times outside of the migratory and hibernation periods
  • Clear delineation of the limit of disturbance; installation of exclusionary fencing to discourage frogs from entering the construction area
  • Monitoring of fences during construction and relocation of any frogs found in the construction area
  • Installation of 4- to 12-foot retaining walls to discourage frogs from entering the work site
  • Permanent protection of 79.4 acres of the property (82.8% of the site) through establishment of a deed of conservation easement to be held by the Village of Florida.

Groundwater encountered during excavation of a new vertical shaft, Shaft 5B, will be treated prior to discharge. Also included in the new discharge are process wastewaters from the rock stockpile area and vehicle wash operations. New Shaft 5B is required to provide access for tunnel boring equipment to construct the new section of aqueduct to replace the leaking section of the RWBT.

The proposed replacement aqueduct section, including two new access shafts (new Shaft 6B to be constructed at the East Connection Site in the Chelsea area of the Town of Wappinger, Dutchess County), will be constructed at depths ranging from 600 to 900 feet.
