Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters

Project is Located:

Sodus, Wayne County

Project Description:

The applicant is proposing the installation of three (3) floating wave attenuators, each measuring approximately 15 feet wide by 200 feet long. Two of the structures would be placed approximately 120 feet from the end of the Yacht Club's existing docks and the third would be placed diagonally, approximately 100 feet from the end of the Sodus Bay Junior Sailing Association's docks. The wave attenuators will be located in water that is 10 - 15 feet deep and used from May through October. Outside these dates the attenuators will be sunk to the bottom. If permitted, it is the Department's intention to initially authorize the installation of a single attenuator. Once it is demonstrated that the attenuator functions as designed, the Department would provide written authorization for the installation of the remaining two structures.
