Dutchess County

Applicant: Ibm Corp
New Orchard Rd
Armonk, NY 10504
Facility: Ibm Water Line
Shenandoah Rd
Hopewell Junction, NY
Application ID: 3-1328-00387/00001
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Project is Located: East Fishkill, Dutchess County
Project Description:
     The IBM Corp., has applied for permits to install a 12-inch diameter by 1.8 mile long permanent buried water transmission line, to supply water from the Town of Fishkill to a number of homes in the "Shenandoah Road Area Water Supply Project."  The homes in this portion of the Shenandoah Road area need a new source of water to replace their private wells, which are contaminated by an old chemical spill.  The water transmission main, know as "Contract B," is mandated by Administrative Order on Consent #CERCLA-02-2001-2020.  
       The trenching for the installation of this water transmission line would disturb a portion of the 100-foot wide adjacent area of the following state regulated Freshwater Wetlands:
               HJ-54,   Class 1, along Shenandoah Road
               HJ-37,   Class 2, along Rt 52
               HJ-56,   Class 2  along Rt 52 in two locations, and
               HJ-65    Class 3  along Rt 52
Additionally, the water transmission line would be installed under the following protected streams:
               H-95-9  Class C-t, and
               H-95-8  Class C-t (Wiccopee Creek).
       Construction of this water transmission line water line is located completely outside of the Shenandoah Road Groundwater Contamination Superfund Site, and thus trenching for the  installation of this water transmission line will not disturb any contaminated groundwater.
        The proposed water transmission line would be constructed in the shoulder of NYS Rt 52 and also in the shoulder of Shenandoah Road, primarily in the Town of East Fishkill, but a short section would be in the Town of Fishkill, in Dutchess County, New York.

Westchester County

Applicant: Elizabeth Miller
Facility: Stay Sail Farm
376 Grant Rd
North Salem, NY
Application ID: 3-5540-00092/00002
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Article 17 Titles 7 & 8 Private/Commercial/Institutional SPDES
Project is Located: North Salem, Westchester County
Project Description:
The applicant proposes to expand an existing horse farm by adding 2 horse barns, 2 outdoor riding rings, an indoor riding ring, multiple paddocks, a maintenance building, a caretaker cottage, stormwater management basins, and a 2400 gallon per day subsurface sewage disposal system.  The stormwater basins, paddocks, outdoor riding ring, and access road are proposed to disturb approximately 1.5 acres of the 100-foot regulated Adjacent Area of NYS Freshwater Wetland L-9, Class I.  Disturbance would include clearing of vegetation and excavation and fill. Approximately 1000 square feet of the wetland are proposed to be impacted by the placement of an open bottom culvert for the access road.    Approximately 0.15 acre of wetland, currently an old roadbed, is proposed to be restored and planted with appropriate vegetation.  No sewage disposal within the Freshwater Wetland or 100-foot Adjacent Area is proposed.

The proposed subsurface sanitary discharge appears to meet the criteria for DEC's General Permit for Sanitary Discharge of 1,000 - 10,000 gallons per day to Groundwater (GP-0-05-001).
