Pawling, Dutchess County

Project Description:

The Village of Pawling proposes a withdrawal of up to 200 GPM from two shallow sand and gravel wells (PW-1 and PW-2) on the Umscheid Property, located at 81 Lakeside Drive, Pawling, for public potable water supplying the Village of Pawling. This site is located within NYS freshwater wetland DP-22, and within occupied NYS endangered Bog turtle habitat. Potable water is proposed for treatment at Baxter Green Treatment Building located south of the well site.

Disturbance to NYS Freshwater Wetland DP-22 and the regulated 100 ft adjacent area is proposed associated with the installation of associated infrastructure, as well as alterations to wetland hydrology. Approximately 5,900 SF of disturbance within the100 ft adjacent area is proposed for an access road and well, and 8,300 SF of disturbance is associated with the installation trenching of water and electrical lines. Approximately 150 LF of horizontal directional drilling is proposed through NYS freshwater wetland DP-22, in order to connect to the existing Baxter Green Treatment Building.

The applicant proposes hydrological alterations to a portion of freshwater wetland DP-22, and a portion of the Swamp River, which is in proximity to occupied Bog turtle habitat, a listed endangered species.
