Negative Declaration

Kings County (Brooklyn) - The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Whale Creek Floating Dock Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by NYC DEP for the construction of a new 200 foot long floating dock with an associated platform and gangway in the area adjacent to an existing floating dock in Whale Creek Canal. Whale Creek Canal is a small tributary of Newtown Creek located in the neighborhood of Greenpoint, Brooklyn, New York. The Newtown Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP), owned and operated by NYC DEP, borders Whale Creek Canal to the south and west. The primary use of Whale Creek Canal currently is for NYC DEP support activities pertaining to the Newtown Creek WWTP. Sludge vessels, and a small number of other vessels in NYC DEP's fleet, use the area to berth (moor or dock). The proposed floating dock expansion would accommodate four additional NYC DEP vessels and allow for those vessels to be properly offloaded. The gangway would be used to board the floating dock both of which would raise and lower according to high and low tides. Existing infrastructure used to support the current floating dock would be altered to support the proposed floating dock. Alterations would include the potential removal and replacement of existing fenders and removal of a portion of a concrete wall and railing associated with the existing bulkhead. The project consists of construction of an expanded floating dock, and associated platform and gangway. The proposed location of the Whale Creek Canal floating dock expansion is directly north of the existing bulkhead on the east side of the canal.
