Project Title: Darryl D. and Rita L. Drew

Location: 584 Lake Road and the west shoreline of Lake Champlain, Town of Crown Point, Essex County.

Comment Period Ends: June 2, 2005

Project Description: The project consists of the construction of a retaining wall less than 200 square feet in size, approximately 4 feet tall by 50 feet long on lands owned by the applicant adjoining the shoreline of Lake Champlain. The retaining wall is intended to stabilize an ongoing erosion problem on the project site along the shoreline and to improve shoreline access for the applicants. The project involves disturbance to shrub and emergent marsh wetlands along the shoreline of Lake Champlain. To mitigate wetland impacts, wetland vegetation will be allowed to re-establish itself along the shoreline in the vicinity of the wall and small pockets of shrub wetland vegetation will be planted within areas of the retaining wall. The project includes seasonal installation and removal of a wood and aluminum dock on support posts involving emergent marsh wetlands. The dock will consist of a two foot wide by ten foot long “catwalk” connected to six ten foot long by four foot wide sections of dock leading to one four foot by ten foot section of dock installed ninety degrees out of phase at the end. Each section of dock will be supported by four vertical metal posts having small square metal post bases. The dock components will be removed seasonally and stored along the shoreline at a designated location behind existing vegetation along the shoreline. The project includes construction of a six foot wide walkway to access the lake involving site grading and drainage work. Erosion control measures will be installed on the project site prior to the start of construction and will remain in place until all disturbed soils are stabilized with growing vegetation. The wetland mitigation will be monitored for a minimum of two years following completion of the project.
