Yonkers, NY -
Application ID: 3-5518-00735/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Project is Located: Yonkers, Westchester County
Project Description:
      The applicant proposes to disturb 0.45 acres of 1.45 acre federally regulated wetland in order to construct “The River Club” consisting of between 418 to 440 affordable residential housing units in a 7 to 10 story building complex.  It would be located on a 4.6 acre property on the west side of Warburton Avenue, north of Odell Avenue, in the City of Yonkers.  The federal wetland is at the lowest elevation on the western portion of the property, adjacent to the Metro North Hudson River Line  and Amtrak railroad tracks. The applicant has also applied to the U.S. Army Corps Of Engineers for a permit under Section 404 of the federal Clean Water Act for filling this 0.45 acres of federally regulated wetland.  The River Club proposes to mitigate the loss of federal wetland by the creation of a one-acre wetland preserve in Tibbetts Brook Park, a Westchester County facility elsewhere in the City of Yonkers, resulting in a 2 for 1 replacement of wetlands lost at The River Club site.  The applicant is seeking this Section 401 Water Quality Certification from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation because the project requires a federal wetland permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
