General Permit for Article 15 (Protection of Waters)
and Article 24 (Freshwater Wetlands)


The NYS DEC, Division of Environmental Permits has made a tentative decision to issue a General Permit for certain activities regulated by Article 24 (Freshwater Wetlands) and Article 15 (Protection of Waters).  The goal of this general permit is to expedite the processing of wetland and stream protection permits for certain activities that fall within the authorized activity guidelines of 6NYCRR Part 663.4(d), and that are generally considered to have minimal impacts.  In addition, the general permit would include activities subject to jurisdiction under 6NYCRR Part 608, involving stream or shoreline disturbances of 100 feet or less, which are also generally considered to have minimal impacts.  

The activities authorized by this general permit will include minor property improvements, replacements, reconstructions and expansion of existing structures and systems, minor utility installation projects, stream bank stabilization (100 feet or less), various vegetation removal projects involving wetland areas, pesticides applications, and stormwater/drainage systems.  

Any interested parties and/or agencies desiring to express their views may do so, in writing, no later than September 19, 2003.  Comments should be submitted to William J. Clarke, Regional Permit Administrator, NYS DEC, 1150 North Westcott Road, Schenectady, NY 12306.
Any parties wishing to review a copy of the proposed general permit may request a copy by calling William J. Clarke at (518) 357-2069.
