Project Description:

     Seven Springs, LLC has applied for permits related to its proposed development of an 18-hole championship golf course with associated amenities on the 213-acre former Eugene Meyer estate located in the Towns of Bedford, New Castle and North Castle. The property is generally bordered on the south by the Meyer Nature Preserve, on the east by Byram Lake, on the west by Sarles Street and on the north by Oregon Road. Associated with the golf course development is the construction and operation of a Linear Adsorption System (LAS) designed as a structural Best Management Practice for treatment of stormwater from the managed turf areas of the course. The LAS consists of grassed, lined infiltration swales and activated carbon chambers that will result in the discharge of treated stormwater run-off at six outfall locations: 001, 002 to tributaries of Byram Lake; 003 to Byram Lake; 004 and 005 to tributaries of the Kisco River and 006 to a tributary of the Wampus River. Discharges from the LAS require a State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit. A draft permit containing proposed effluent limitations and monitoring requirements has been prepared by the Department for these discharges and is available for review.

     Seven Springs, LLC has also applied for approval of a 9316 gallon per day discharge of sanitary wastewater to a septic tank with cast galleys system for its proposed clubhouse facility. In addition, the applicant requires a water quality certificate from the Department pursuant to Section 401 of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act for modification of approximately 0.97 acres of wetlands. Seven Springs, LLC proposes to create approximately 1.68 acres of freshwater wetlands.

     The applicant has also submitted information to obtain coverage under the State's SPDES General Permit (GP-93-06) for Storm Water Discharges from Construction Activities. Information submitted by the applicant is subject to review by the Department in order to gain authorization for coverage under this general permit.

     The Department intends to schedule a Public Hearing regarding these applications. This Hearing will be conducted at a location near the project and is expected to convene by early December, 2001. Notice of the Hearing will be announced in the Department's Environmental Notice Bulletin and a local newspaper.
