Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Buffalo, Erie County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to dredge approximately 500,000 cubic yards of contaminated sediments from portions of the Buffalo River and City Ship Canal. Sediment disposal will be at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Confined Disposal Facility. Approximately 4,200 cubic yards of sediments regulated under the Toxic Substance Control Act will be specially handled and properly disposed. Dredge and TSCA regulated sediment volumes may change during construction. Actual volumes will be recorded and reported at the completion of the work. Some capping of sediments will be done at the head of the ship canal and in areas where dredging could compromise shoreline structures. The final phase of construction activities will be restoration of aquatic habitat in selected areas. The Buffalo River Area of Concern - Great Lakes Legacy Act Sediment Remediation and Habitat Restoration is made possible through a unique public-private partnership, including the U.S. EPA's Great Lakes National Program Office, Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper, Honeywell, New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, and the United States Army Corps of Engineers.
