Application ID: 2-6404-00394/00005
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Project is Located: Staten Island, Richmond County
Project Description:
As part of the New York City Department of Environmental Protections's Bluebelt System, the   applicant proposes the following four BMP's (Best Management Practices) in the Jack's Pond watershed; 1 - NYSDEC regulated Class II Freshwater Wetland AR 8 (Jack's Pond) is proposed for use as an extended detention wetland to provide flood control and enhance water quality. The proposed BMP consists of a five foot wide, seven foot long one foot deep box near an existing deteriorated outlet to control water surface fluctuations. A vegetated berm will be constructed at the existing outlet along with a stone-faced wall to prevent breaches. Fill material will be removed from the north side of the pond and the area will be restored as marsh. 2 - A stilling chamber will be constructed under Clovis Road to provide velocity attenuation for the storm sewer draining into the pond. The chamber will also intercept sediment and other debris prior to entering the pond. 3 - A new culvert is proposed to improve storm water flow under Hillside Terrace and a forebay will be created to prevent to culvert from clogging and to intercept sediment. Work also involves construction of a stabilized outlet at the downstream end the culvert. 4 - A new culvert is proposed for Cleveland Avenue to improve storm water conveyance with a stabilized inlet at the end of the culvert and and a forebay at the upstream end to prevent  clogging of the culvert and to intercept sediment. The Jack's Pond Watershed is bounded by Amboy Road, Lindenwood Road, Midland Road and Grandview Terrace.
