Application ID: 2-6006-00014/00013
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 27 Title 7 Solid Waste Management
Project is Located: Bronx, Bronx County
Project Description:
Ferry Point Partners, LLC and NYC Department of Parks and Recreation, as co- applicants, are seeking modification of an existing Solid Waste Management Permit to facilitate the construction of a Golf Course in the Throgs Neck section of Queens.  The applicants propose to increase the amount of fill imported and placed on the site from 1,522,300 cubic yards of uncontaminated construction and demolition debris (C&D) (authorized under a permit issued in October 2002) to 2,370,000 cubic yards as a shaping layer and 250,000 cubic yards of uncontaminated topsoil imported for a cover layer. The proposed modification supports a change in design from a traditional tree lined course to that of  a "links" type golf course.  The applicants propose in addition to the increase fill: the addition of on site processing (to reduce C&D to two feet or less) by hydraulic hammer, the addition of asphalt millings as fill material, a reduction in the number of wells for an established Gas Monitoring Network and the addition of night time hours for receipt of fill material.  

Ferry Point Park Golf Course is a 222 acre site, inclusive of a  7 acre community park and a 19.5 acre waterfront park.  The project is located on Bronx Tax Block 5583, Lot 100 and Bronx Block 5622, Lot 1, bounded by Miles, Balcom and Schley Avenue, and  the Bronx Whitestone Bridge.  

Application documents for this project may be viewed at either of two document repositories established for this project: New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, 1 Bronx River Parkway, Bronx, NY and Community Board #10, 3165 East Tremont Avenue, Bronx, NY.

Applicant: Colonial Pipeline Co
PO Box 18855
Atlanta, GA 31126 -0855
Facility: Colonial Pipeline CO-ARTHUR Kill Rd

Staten Island, NY
Application ID: 2-6405-00221/00003
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Article 25 Tidal Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Project is Located: Staten Island, Richmond County
Project Description:
Colonial Pipeline Company (the Applicant) proposes to relocate two 14-inch petroleum product pipelines to accommodate the US Army Corps of Engineers NY/NJ Harbor deepening project. Each 14-inch pipeline relocation is approximately 3126 feet in length, with the maximum depth of one being 104.5 feet and the other being 95.3 feet. The new pipelines will be installed via horizontal directional drilling. The entry point for the pipelines is located in the City of Elizabeth, New Jersey and the exit point is on Staten Island on the old Port Ivory property, adjacent to the New York Container Terminal. A shallow anode bed (a sacrificial device designed to send a low level electrical current that draws corrosion away from the pipeline towards the metal rods) will be installed to provide cathodic protection for the new pipelines.

The applicant proposes to excavate dual 35 to 45 foot  trenches to tie the relocated pipelines into the existing system, which is located within an abandoned property and an existing capped landfill. The existing pipelines will tie-in to the relocated pipelines immediately north of Richmond Terrace Boulevard and south of the existing capped landfill limits.After the relocated pipelines have been installed, the original pipelines will be purged with nitrogen, capped and temporarily left in place, until such time as the US Army Corps of Engineers makes arrangements to have them removed.
