Application ID: 2-6401-00020/00004
Permit(s) Applied for: Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Staten Island, Richmond County
Project Description:
The Flag Container facility operated by Flag Container Services, Inc. (Applicant) and located at 11 Ferry Street, Staten Island, NY, is seeking to modify their Construction and Demolition Waste Transfer Station and Recyclables Handling and Recovery facility permit (DEC Permit No. 2-6101-00020/00001). The modification request is two fold; 1) to introduce a waterfront component to their operation for the purposes of shipping outbound construction and demolition residuals via a 4,000 ton hopper barge to Chesapeake, Virginia, and 2) to increase the storage capacity from 3,000 cubic yards (2,250 tons) to 12,000 cubic yards (9,000 tons).

To prepare for the waterfront operation the Applicant will need to dredge approximately 6,000 cubic yards of river bottom sediments to a depth of 16 feet below mean low water with a two foot allowable overdepth. Waterfront operations will include a permanent spill skirt along the bulkhead line to prevent accidental spilling of residual waste into the Kill van Kull during the barge loading process; the installation of a new collection sump and associated drain pipes; and the paving of the unpaved areas in the northeast section of the facility. Waste will be transferred from landside to the waiting hopper barges via a crane with a heavy-duty environmental clamshell bucket. Using hopper barges to transport the waste to Virginia will reduce truck traffic in the area by approximately 55 truck trips per day.

The purpose of the request for an increase in storage capacity is to accommodate the volume of the hopper barges that will be moored at the facility. The Applicant will be using 4,000 ton hopper barges in their operation. The 9,000 ton storage capacity allows for a full hopper barge (4,000 tons) tied to the bulkhead, the unexpected return to the facility of a fully loaded hopper barge (additional 4,000 tons) and another 1,000 tons of waste on the upland facility awaiting loading onto the next available hopper barge.

The Applicant has prepared an enhanced Public Participation Plan as required by NYSDEC policy “CP-29  Environmental Justice and Permitting” (March 2003). A Public Participation meeting was held on April 26th, 2005 at the Port Richmond Library. The Applicant has established a Document Repository at the Port Richmond Library, located at 75 Bennett Avenue, Staten Island, NY 10302.
