Permit(s) Applied for:

Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

Milo, Yates County

Project Description:

In accordance with Administrative Order on Consent (Index No. DO-0002-39309) between NYSEG and the NYSDEC, this project proposes the remediation of contaminated soil from the former Penn Yan Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP), which was located on the north bank of the Keuka Lake outlet, just east of Liberty St. Approximately 5,000 cubic yards of sediment from within a 69,000 square foot area in the Outlet needs to be removed. A combination of sheet piling and other temporary cofferdam structures (e.g. inflatable dams) will be used to isolate in-water dredging areas. Turbidity curtain and an oil booms will be used outside the cofferdams as secondary controls for maintaining water quality throughout construction. A designated area will also be built on-site to dewater sediment prior to disposal at a permitted thermal treatment facility or landfill. Clean fill will be placed back into the channel to restore current channel elevations and native species of aquatic and riparian plants will be installed to enhance habitat and species diversity.
