Ocean Ave & Dunemere Ln
East Hampton, NY 11937
Application ID: 1-4724-01510/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Project is Located: East Hampton, Suffolk County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to remove stands of Phragmites australis (Phragmites), a non-native invasive plant species, from the shoreline of Hook Pond, a freshwater pond located in the Village of East Hampton.  The proposed method is to cut and dig the roots of these plants manually and by means of a mechanical device called a "Hydrorake."  This device functions like a backhoe while operating from a small barge.  It utilizes a rake head with teeth, similar to a clam rake, which clenches the roots of the plants and allows both water and sediment to escape back into the pond.  The Hydrorake would be used in areas where dense monocultures of Phragmites exist.  Where this species grows intermixed with native plants, it is proposed to cut and dig the Phragmites by hand.  Native species would be used to revegetate areas of shoreline that were historically vegetated.  Future growth of Phragmites would also be cut and dug manually in an effort to manage the return of Hook pond to its native state.

Application ID: 1-4736-06895/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Article 15 Title 15 Long Island Well
Project is Located: Southampton, Suffolk County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to install a 200' deep 8" diameter irrigation well with a capacity of 300 gallons per minute.  The proposed project is within 100' of an area depicted as freshwater wetlands on the official NYS freshwater wetland maps (FWW SA-36). However, a field inspection of the proposed area, by NYSDEC staff, found the filed map depiction to be incorrect and that no freshwater wetlands exists within the expected zone of influence of the proposed well.  Therefore, it is not anticipated that the well will affect the wetland.  The project is located on the west side of Guyer Road off  Scuttle Hole Road northeast of Cooks Lane in the locality of Scuttlehole, Town of Southampton, SCTM # 900-49-1-3.012 & 3.011.
