Permit(s) Applied for: Article 15 Title 27 Wild, Scenic, & Recreational Rivers
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Private/Commercial/Institutional SPDES
Project is Located: Gardiner, Ulster County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to convert up to three buildings on a 35 acre parcel of land along the Shawangunk Kill (DEC Water Index No. H-139-13-19;  Class B) for use as a country inn and lodge.  The project site is located off Tutthilltown Road, approximately 0.4 mile southeast of the intersection with Routes 44/55.  The project involves the conversion of two existing residential structures and one storage building into overnight lodging for a combined total of up to 50 people per night.  In addition, a portion of another existing storage building will be converted into a 40-seat cafe.  To accommodate overnight and day guests, an additional 50 parking spaces will be designated in existing gravel and grassy areas on the site, and a new entrance from Tuttletown Road will be construction. The site will also be used for non-motorized recreational and educational activities (e.g., mountain biking, cross-country skiing, fishing, hiking, etc.), and to host day gatherings and events, in accordance with local approvals.  The applicant also proposes to selectively cut dead trees and to install a utility shed of up to 100 square feet within 100 feet of the river bank.

Conversion of the buildings will require an upgrade of an existing subsurface sewage disposal system and the construction of a new subsurface sewage disposal system.  The Department has made a tentative determination to approve this application for a SPDES permit for the subsurface discharge of up to 3,970 gallons of sanitary wastewater per day. A draft SPDES permit has been prepared and is available for review at the DEC Region 3 office (SPDES #NY-0264849).
