Article 11 Endangered/Threatened Species (Incidental Take)

Project is Located:

La Grange, Dutchess County

Project Description:

Hudson Valley Federal Credit Union (HVFCU) proposes to construct a 4,450 SF Branch Office on a 1.26 acre parcel located south of NYS Route 55 and west of the new Stringham Road (at the new Roundabout) in the Town of LaGrange, Dutchess County. An Incidental Take Permit is required because the Department has determined that the project may result in a "take" or "taking" of the Blanding's Turtle (Emydoidea blandingii), which is listed as a threatened species pursuant to Environmental Conservation Law Section 11-0535 and 6 NYCRR Part 182.

The Department has determined that the loss of 1.26 acres may result in the loss of suitable nesting habitat for the Blanding's turtle. A Mitigation Plan has been developed to avoid, minimize or mitigate adverse impacts to this threatened species, and includes measures such as temporary and permanent turtle exclusion fencing; an operational encounter plan, training and education; annual rototilling (for 5 years) of the 2-acre Turtle Nesting Mitigation Area at Stringham Road to improve habitat; and on-site monitoring and inspection reporting (for 5 years).

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Industrial SPDES - Surface Discharge

Project is Located:

Warwick, Orange County

Project Description:

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is proposing a Department Initiated Modification (DIM) to the State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) Permit NY0272876, DEC id # 3-3354-00654/00001 pursuant to Article 17 of the Environmental Conservation Law and 6 NYCRR Section 750-1.18. The current permit authorizes a surface discharge of 43,200 gallons per day of treated process wastewater to a tributary (NJ-P 102-6, Class C) of Greenwood Lake. The discharge is from two backwash holding tanks and sludge holding tank at the Village of Greenwood Lake Water Filtration Plant.

The DIM is for the introduction of ortho-poly phosphate anti-corrosion treatment to the Village of Greenwood Lake's water supply system. The current SPDES permit for the facility does not account for phosphorus, therefore the use of ortho-poly phosphate anti-corrosion treatment will require a SPDES permit modification.

This DIM will authorize the use of ortho-poly phosphate anti-corrosion treatment and will require the Village to undertake a short-term high intensity monitoring program to gather data on the actual level of phosphorous in the Water Filtration Plant discharge once the ortho-poly phosphate anti-corrosion treatment has assimilated in the water supply system. Based on the results of the monitoring program, DEC will determine appropriate next steps with regard to the need for further SPDES permit modifications, including re-opening the permit to include a numeric limit for phosphorus.
