Otsego County

Applicant: Robert Kingsley
Facility: Clarke Pond
Sr 80, Southeast of Intersection W/TIEJIN Road
Springfield Center, NY
Application ID: 4-3660-00087/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 15 Title 5 Dam
Project is Located: Springfield, Otsego County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to dredge 2 areas totaling 1.4 acres to a depth of 10 feet within Clarke Pond/freshwater wetland RS-9 and upgrade the dam as part of a plan to improve the water quality in Otsego Lake.  Clarke Pond historically has acted as a  detention basin for a 10,000 acre drainage basin and in effect has protected Otsego Lake from a substantial loading of sediment and nutrients.  The dredging is intended to return the pond's capacity to act as a nutrient and sediment detention basin.  Modifications to the existing dam will provide additional capacity to handle the 100-year flood.  Dam repairs include refacing abutment walls, restoration of the low-level outlet, raising the wingwalls, and regrouting all joints. The project is located  on the east side of State Route 80, opposite Tiejin Road.
