Steuben County

Applicant: Steuben Co Soil & Water Conservation Dis
415 West Morris St
Bath, NY 14810
Facility: Steuben Swcd Countywide Art.15 Permit
Article 15 General Permit
Steuben, NY 14810
Application ID: 8-4600-00001/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Project is Located: , Steuben County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to modify their existing County-wide Article 15 General Permit in order to better address stream impairments by employing natural stream design methodologies. The modification of the General Permit would allow for focus on process and not just structure, with the understanding that complex ecosystem and associated habitat feature stabilization and restoration cannot be achieved via the simple and artificial manipulation of selected components. In accordance with this philosophy, the General Permit modification will allow for limited Article 24 Freshwater Wetland activity coverage and will increase the coverage thresholds for Article 15 activities, allowing application of these natural design concepts over longer reaches of streams and their riparian habitats. Application materials are available for public review and comment at the NYS DEC Regional Headquarters.

Hammondsport, NY 14840
Application ID: 8-4672-00041/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Private/Commercial/Institutional SPDES
Project is Located: Urbana, Steuben County
Project Description:
Garrett Landing LLC proposes to redevelop a 2.15 acre site at 1 Lake Street by removing an abandoned warehouse and creating the proposed Garrett Landing facility. They propose to construct a three-story townhouse building containing 26 townhouse units, repair 50 linear feet of existing vertical breakwall, stabilize the eastern shoreline with riprap (above the mean high water level), maintain an existing dock, add 445 linear feet of new dock and board walk on piles, add 384 linear feet of new slips, construct a new access drive from Water and Mill streets, and construct new wastewater and stormwater treatment systems.  The applicant proposes to discharge approximately 6,400  gallons per day of treated sanitary effluent from a Bioclere treatment plant to groundwater. The Department has made a tentative determination to issue a SPDES permit for the sanitary effluent as the proposed discharge has been determined to meet standards for permit issuance. As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision. The site stormwater will be required to meet the General Permit for Construction water quality conditions.  The file is available for review at the NYSDEC Region 8 office.  The Department will respond to comments pertaining to Article 15 (Excavation and Fill), Article 17 (SPDES) permits and other state statutory requirements.
