Facility: Brookside Meadows
Wigsten Rd - South Side
Pleasant Valley, NY
Application ID: 3-1344-00138/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Private/Commercial/Institutional SPDES
Project is Located: Pleasant Valley, Dutchess County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to construct a 302 unit apartment and townhouse complex, on approximately 67 acres, known as "Brookside Meadows" in two phases.  The first phase will include the construction of 12 buildings that consists of 64 apartments and 16 town houses and the installation of water supply and wastewater piping.  These utilities will require a crossing of Freshwater Wetland SP-53, Class II and its adjacent area, along with a crossing of the tributary of Great Spring Creek, Index # H-101-12-1, Class B.  There will be eight subsurface sanitary wastewater treatment systems installed on the north side of the stream with a total estimated flow of 22,810 gallons per day.  These subsurface systems will be taken off-line after the completion of the construction of the proposed wastewater treatment plant, during the second phase of the project.      

The second phase of the project proposes the construction of 32 buildings that consists of 184 apartments, 36 townhouses, pool building and a wastewater treatment plant to serve the entire development.  The estimated effluent is 65,280 gallons per day of treated, sanitary wastewater discharged to the Great Spring Creek.  The expansion and reconstruction of an existing farm road through the freshwater wetland and its adjacent area along with the installation of a bridge to cross the tributary of Great Spring Creek will be required to provide access and egress between the two phases of this apartment complex development. Approximately 0.1 acres of wetland and 0.6 acres of State regulated Adjacent Area are proposed to be filled. Mitigation for this fill will be the creation of approximately 0.28 acres of freshwater wetland on site.  The proposed bridge will span at least 20 feet to minimize any potential adverse impacts to wildlife.   

The Department has made a tentative determination to issue a permit for a State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit under Article 17 of the Environmental Conservation Law.  This tentative determination indicates that the discharge regulated under this statute is considered to satisfy regulatory standards for permit issuance, based on information available to the Department at this time.  As a tentative determination, the Department seeks comments on the proposed regulated activity prior to making a final decision on permit issuance.  As such, this tentative determination does not signify department approval for or endorsement of the activity for which a permit is sought or for the overall proposed project.

This is notification of your opportunity to comment and to request a hearing based on substantive comment potentially resulting in permit conditions or permit denial.

The application and the draft permit are available for public inspection at NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), Region 3, 21-South Putt Corners Road, New Paltz, NY 12561.  Please refer to this application by the application number listed above and SPDES number NY-0268119.
