Project Title: General Permit/814 Order for Disposal of Uncontaminated Wastes From Maintenance and Construction Activities by Highway Departments

General Permit Number: 2002G-1

Brief Project Description: The Adirondack Park Agency (APA) proposes to issue a new general permit/814 order, on conditions, to State, county and municipal highway departments for the disposal on private lands with landowner consent, of up to 5,000 cubic yards per disposal site of allowable uncontaminated wastes resulting solely from highway maintenance and construction activities within the Adirondack Park. This general permit will be in effect for a five-year period.

In order to utilize this general permit/order, each applicant must submit a completed and signed "Application and General Permit/Order Certification For Disposal of Uncontaminated Wastes From Maintenance and Construction Activities by Highway Departments." Agency staff will review the application for completeness, conduct a site visit and determine if the proposed project meets the terms and conditions of this general permit/order. If approvable, authorized APA representatives will sign and return to the applicant the "Application and Certification" form. The applicant may not begin waste disposal activities until the Agency signed permit/order has been received.

Allowable waste materials include trees, branches, stumps, wood chips, recognizable concrete and concrete products (including steel or fiberglass reinforcing embedded in concrete), asphalt pavements, brick, stone, rock and soil. Waste disposal sites will be final graded to naturally stable slopes and blended smoothly into the surrounding topography, covered with 6 inches of soil and seeded. Restrictions:

3. Permits are not required from the APA for the disposal of excess sediment and organic materials resulting from the cleaning of highway ditches, culverts, catch basins and shoulders and surplus excavated soil materials (i.e.: clean fill) taken from trenches dug for public utility projects (e.g., water line or sewer installations) provided the material is:

4. The disposal of tree trunks and branches or the disposal of woodchips or stump grindings resulting from the removal of trees or branches from within the highway rights-of-way is not creation of a "waste disposal area" and does not require an Agency permit provided:
