Owego, NY 13827
Facility: Stagecoach Storage Project
Several Roads in the 2 Towns
Owego & Nichols, NY
Application ID: 7-4999-00013/00010
Permit(s) Applied for: Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Project is Located: Owego, Tioga County
Project Description:
Central New York Oil and Gas is expanding its existing Stagecoach Storage Facility in Tioga County, NY to convert existing natural gas production fields that are nearly depleted into high performance underground gas storage facilities. The entire project is subject to review and approval by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. The Phase II Expansion includes 2.84 miles of 20-inch diameter pipeline, 0.37 miles of 6-inch diameter pipeline, three storage wells and five access roads. Additional infrastructure includes a North Lateral Line consisting of  9.3 miles of 20-inch diameter pipeline, four access roads and 14.6 acres of storage/contractor yards.

Some of the proposed work will impact federal wetlands and streams regulated under Section 404 of the Clean Water Act and requires a permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Corps expects to utilize Nationwide Permit 12 to address the impacts and the Federal 404 permit requirement. An additional requirement of Nationwide Permit 12 is the necessity for the applicant to obtain a Section 401 Water Quality Certification from NYSDEC.

The Phase II Expansion pipeline will cross five streams and the North Lateral pipeline will cross twenty six streams. The Phase II Expansion pipeline will cross eleven wetlands and the North Lateral pipeline will cross fourteen wetlands. Temporary wetland impacts total 3.88 acres with permanent wetland impacts of .62 acres.
