Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification
Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Project is Located: Perinton, Monroe County
Project Description:
The Town of Perinton proposes to conduct a major redevelopment of  their Department of Public Works Operations Center located at 100 Cobbs Lane in the Town of Perinton. Work will include the demolishing and replacement of existing vehicle storage facility, maintenance facility, and replacement of petroleum bulk storage facilities, salt storage facility, the installation of a  vehicle and pedestrian crossing over White Brook, and the renovation of an existing highway garage to be used for additional vehicle storage.  The project as proposed will result in the loss of 0.48 acres of NYS Freshwater Wetland PR-31 (Class II).  Onsite mitigation for wetland impacts and stormwater impacts have been ruled out due to lack of suitable area onsite.  To compensate for the wetland loss the Town proposes to partner with Waste Management of New York, LLC, on the High Acres Landfill expansion to fund creation of 1.0 acres of additional wetland mitigation as part of their Parkway Expansion-Phase III project.  To address compliance with the Department's Stormwater Management General Permit for Construction Activities the project sponsor has proposed  to modify two previously constructed stormwater detention facilities within the White Brook/Thomas Creek watershed.

Seneca Falls, NY 13165
Application ID: 8-4532-00075/00031
Permit(s) Applied for: Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Project is Located: Seneca Falls, Seneca County
Project Description:
Seneca Energy II LLC submitted an Article 24 Freshwater Wetland Permit application to construct 6,400 feet of new 34.5 kV power line to connect the relocated landfill gas to energy facility, which utilizes gas produced by the Seneca Meadows landfill to generate electricity, to the Goulds substation owned by NYSEG in the Village of Seneca Falls. This proposal includes approximately 2,450 feet of ROW through NYS Freshwater Wetland (SF-4).  This will result in the permanent alteration of 27,300 square feet of regulated wetland.  The new power line is proposed to be located within the existing ROW, however the power line size requires an additional 50-70 feet of ROW to be cleared and maintained.  NYSEG would be the owner and entity responsible for maintaining the utility corridor after it's completed.  The application has been determined to be complete and ready for technical review.  The file is available for review and comment at NYSDEC Region 8.  CORRECTIONS: The ENB Notice issued on 3/14/07 had an incorrect public comment deadline; the correct deadline is 3/9/07.  The SHPA determination has also been corrected.
