Facility: General Permit for Article 15
N/A
Chemung, NY 14845
Application ID: 8-0700-00001/00001
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 Stream Disturbance
Project is Located: , Chemung 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 natural stream processes, with the understanding that complex ecosystem, 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.
