Draft General Permit for Stream Activities, GP-0-20-002

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) proposes to issue a statewide general permit for various activities in state-regulated streams, navigable waters, and wetlands. The Stream Activities General Permit (GP-0-20-002) is proposed to be issued for a five-year term in response to the ongoing need for affected property owners to stabilize stream banks, repair culverts and bridges, repair utility lines, and undertake other routine projects within regulated New York State waters. The permit authorizations would include ECL Article 15 Stream Disturbance; ECL Article 15 Excavation & Fill in Navigable Waters; ECL Article 24 Freshwater Wetlands; and State Section 401 Water Quality Certification.

SEQR Determination

The project is an Unlisted Action. DEC has determined there will be no significant adverse impacts and a negative declaration has been prepared.


Public comments on the draft General Permit must be sent in writing to Scott E. Sheeley by November 9, 2020.
