Facility:

New Hartford Flood Control Structure

Application ID:

6-3048-00170/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 5 Dam
Article 15 Title 5 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters
Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands
Article 15 Title 5 Stream Disturbance
Section 401 - Clean Water Act Water Quality Certification

Project is Located:

New Hartford, Oneida County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes the construction of an earthen and concrete flood control structure on Mud Creek to temporarily impound and slow downstream flood flows from 5 to 100-year frequency storms. The project also includes the filling of several offsite properties to bring them out of the existing floodplain for protection from the increased flood levels, upstream of the dam. Impacts to approximately 1.0 acres of existing wetlands will be mitigated through the creation of 2.6 acres of new wetlands on site.

A 12-foot wide 730-foot long earthen berm will be constructed across the floodplain of Mud Creek. At its maximum height, the berm will be 13 feet above the bed of Mud Creek, and a maximum of 9 feet above the floodplain, with a top of berm elevation of 514.25 feet. The upstream embankment slope will be 3:1 (V:H), while the downstream embankment will be 4:1. The 3-stage concrete service spillway consists of a 3.5-foot x 8.5-foot high rectangular weir, combined with a 25-foot x 1.25-foot high weir and a 40-foot wide x 3.5-foot high weir to create a stepped spillway. The combined capacity of the service spillway is 1,575 cfs, or the approximate 100-year, 24-hour flow of Mud Creek. During a 24-hour, 100-year storm event, approximately 88 acre-feet of water will be temporarily impounded upstream of the berm to a maximum elevation of 512.8 feet. Energy dissipating baffles and a stepped spillway are provided to reduce the maximum spillway discharge velocity of approximately 9 feet per second to non-erodible levels. A newly constructed reinforced auxiliary spillway will convey additional flows during storms in excess of a 10-year storm. Approximately 9,000 cubic yards of earth fill will be used to construct the berm.

During construction a temporary lined diversion channel capable of handling a 5-year storm event will be utilized to divert normal Mud Creek flows. Once the new structure is complete flows will be returned to approximately the original location and the diversion channel will be filled.

Application ID:

6-3054-00045/00001

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands

Project is Located:

Sangerfield, Oneida County

Project Description:

The applicant proposes to replace an existing fishing access platform at Chittning Pond in the regulated Adjacent Area of NYS Wetland C-31. The existing platform will be removed and replaced with a new platform. The new timber crib accessible fishing deck/pier is a cantilever design that will be built on the bank above the Ordinary/Mean High Water and hang over the water to allow fishing for persons with mobility difficulties to fish in Chittning Pond. The new platform will be approximately 20.5' by 11' and will be constructed on top of cribbing measuring 20.5' by 6.5' with a height of 5'. The volume of excavation will be 2.5 cubic yards inside Wetland C-31 and 27.35 cubic yards in the regulated Adjacent Area. The volume of fill will be 2.5 cubic yards inside Wetland C-31 and 51.75 cubic yards in the regulated Adjacent Area. Total disturbance will be 22.5 square feet inside Wetland C-31 and 573.75 square feet in the regulated Adjacent Area.
