Paper Attachments Needed
(an environmental professional may be necessary to answer some of the following)
- Project site map
- Location map
- Summary of environmental investigations of both the SOURCE site and the IMPORT site. For dredged materials, this is only necessary for the SOURCE site.
- Summary of the chemical results, including columns from the table Part 375-6.8(b) [scroll to the second table] (link leaves DEC's website) Protection of Public Health-Residential and Protection of Groundwater compounds and color-code values in excess of either column in red.
- Plan for receiving site on the specifics of where and how much BUD materials will be used. The site management plan will have this information.
- Any available test for the sizes of the material (gravel/sand/silt/clay) (usually the sieve data using a Wentworth scale).
- If the material is dredged materials and are less than 95% sand, where will it be amended?:
- What is the minimal percentage of optimal moisture and shear strength? This requires a licensed professional engineer to be consulted and to sign off on this information.
- Description of the environmental controls when placing the materials
If the proposed BUD material does not meet any of the Protection of Public Health-Residential or Protection of Groundwater values from table Part 375-6.8(b) [scroll to the second table] (link leaves DEC's website), you need to contact NYSDEC staff to determine if more information is necessary.
Attachments to be included on CD
- Raw data from environmental investigations for both SOURCE site and IMPORT site (unless dredged materials, then only SOURCE site)
- Raw data from chemical sampling
- Boring logs
- Phase 1 and 2 site investigations, Environmental Data Reviews (EDRs) and all other environmental investigations
