Permit(s) Applied for: Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Article 15 Title 5 Marinas & Moorings
Project is Located: Rochester, Monroe County
Project Description:
The City of Rochester has applied for Article 15 Permits and a 401 Water Quality Certification for various activities associated with the Fast Ferry Terminal for the Port of Rochester on the Genesee River, northeast of the Monroe County boat launch, and along the north warehouse which will be converted into the new ferry terminal.  The project will include the construction of approximately 1,200 linear feet of steel sheet pile bulkhead over existing deteriorated  bulkhead, the construction of 5,000 square feet of concrete pier supported by steel pipe piles, and the dredging of approximately 2,200-6,000 cubic yards of sediments directly in front of the bulkhead to provide adequate draft for the fast ferry vessel.  Scour protection, including 100-290 pound stones and filter fabric,  is proposed for 515 feet of the bulkhead.  Due to moderate levels of cadmium and dioxins, the dredged materials will be dewatered and disposed of at a Part 360-approved solid waste landfill.  The return water from the dredged material will be treated by settling and filtering prior to discharge to the Genesee River.  The proposed scour protection will be used as a cap to prevent future disturbance of more highly contaminated sediments exposed during the dredging. The file is available for review and comment at the NYSDEC Region 8 Office.

Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Project is Located: Savannah, Multiple Counties
Project Description:
The NYS Department of Environmental Conservation is proposing three projects to provide public access to the Howland’s Island Unit of the Northern Montezuma Wildlife Management Area. The projects include: (1)  a timber bridge across the Seneca River, to connect Carncross Road in the Town of Savannah, Wayne County to Hunters Home Road in the Town of Conquest, in Cayuga County; (2) widening of Hunter’s Home Road to allow safe passage of vehicles; and (3) a proposed gravel parking area on the northeast corner of the new bridge adjacent to the Seneca River to provide safe off-road parking for visitors and for access to river for car top boats and canoes. The projects will be located within regulated NYS freshwater wetland M-1 (Class II). Road widening will occur along a 2800 ft long section that will have 8 feet added to the existing width, which will result in a 16 ft wide road when completed. The widened road will have a gravel base to a depth of 3 ft. The proposed parking lot is to be 100 feet long and 70 feet wide and will also have a gravel based to a depth of 3 feet. Gravel fill for road widening and parking lot will be placed on filter fabric. The road widening and parking lot will result in approximately 2500 cu. yds. and 700 cu. yds. After new bridge is constructed, a temporary fill bridge which was constructed in 1997 will be removed from the channel of the Seneca River. The application is available for review at the NYSDEC Region 8 Office.
