Broad Channel Streets & Bulkheads Reconstruction
Davey Resource Group performed a field delineation of federally regulated wetlands in New York as well as a number of surveys and reports to facilitate design project plans that reduce impacts to wetlands according to regulatory requirements.
Davey Resource Group (DRG) performed a field delineation of both New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) and United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) jurisdictional wetlands. Federally regulated wetlands were delineated in accordance with the 1987 USACE Manual for Delineating Jurisdictional Wetlands and the North Central and Northeast Regional supplement, as required by the USACE under the Federal Clean Water Act. NYSDEC regulated tidal wetlands were delineated in accordance with the NYSDEC regulatory definitions of Tidal Wetlands.
DRG performed a field survey of soils, vegetation and hydrology; flagged the wetland/upland boundary; took color photographs; recorded soils, vegetation and hydrologic characteristics of wetlands and uplands at representative locations in the project area; and prepared a wetland delineation report to document the basis of the delineation. The delineation is facilitating design of project plans that reduce impacts to wetlands and are consistent with regulatory programs.
DRG identified the applicable environmental permits required for project construction. Applications for a NYSDEC Article 25 Tidal Wetlands Permit and Article 15 Protection of Waters Permit; NYSDEC Individual State Water Quality Certificate, NYSDOS Coastal Consistency Review; NYC Waterfront Revitalization Program Review; and Pre-Construction Notification for USACE Nationwide Permits #7 and #14 were prepared.
