Staten Island, NY 10314
Application ID: 2-6403-00219/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Project is Located: Staten Island, Richmond County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to construct a 109 unit (two-family) residential development. Approximately 13 of the proposed units are located within the adjacent area of NYSDEC regulated Class I Freshwater Wetland AR-1 (Staten Island Industrial Park). The project site was subject of NYSDEC Freshwater Wetland Permit 20-87-0178 issued on September 17, 1987 for construction of a 135 unit residential development including pond creation and wetland restoration. The mitigation was accepted by NYSDEC on July 23, 1993. The current application proposes a 40 foot wide deed restricted planted buffer area between the development and the wetlands. On July 31, 2003 a Phase I Environmental Site Assessment was conducted at the project site to identify recognized environmental conditions associated with current and historical property use. The site assessment confirmed the presence of semivolatile organic compounds (SVOCs) and metals above TAGM cleanup objectives in non-native materials in areas of the site where solid waste was placed in October 1991 and February 1992. This area was the subject of NYSDEC Order on Consent R23-4062-92-02. No SOVCs or metals were detected above TAGM levels in samples collected from native soils beneath the solid waste. The current permit application proposes covering the site with impermeable surfaces including parking areas, building foundations and roadways. Areas remaining exposed after construction will be capped by removal of surface materials and replacement with two feet of clean fill to limit residential exposure. The project site is located on Lamberts Lane between Graham Avenue and Elson Street, Staten Island, Block 1605 - Lot 1 and Block 1600 - Lot 105.
