Arverne Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans
Prepared Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP) for the proposed redevelopment of approximately 117-acres of the western portion of the Arverne Urban Renewal Area. SWPPP’s were prepared for several phases of the western portion of the Arverne Urban Renewal Area. Each phase includes demolition of existing buildings and construction with new residential and commercial buildings. Each phase consisted of one the new neighborhoods that make up the redevelopment project.
PWGC prepared and submitted SWPPP’s, Notice of Intent applications (NOI’s) and Notice of Termination applications (NOT’s) for the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s (NYSDEC) authorization of the planned redevelopment. The SWPPP’s fulfill requirements for:
- SPDES (State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System)
- General Permit for Storm Water Discharges from Construction Activity (issued pursuant to Article 7, 8 and Article 70 of the Environmental Conservation Law)
PWGC develops SWPPP’s to give clients an opportunity to maximize the potential benefits of nonpoint source pollution management, sediment & erosion control measures and post-construction water quantity and water quality control measures at construction sites. PWGC prepared graphical representations of the E&SC Plan (Erosion and Sediment Control Plan) and the WQWQCP (Water Quantity/Water Quality Control Plan). The SWPPP incorporates the contractor’s construction sequencing into the development of the SWPPP to maximize the efficiency of the proposed control measures and achieve a streamlined construction schedule. PWGC performed weekly construction duration inspections of the erosion and sediment control practices and water quantity and water quality control measures and coordinated with field personnel to remedy observed deficiencies. The weekly inspections also included the implementation of nonpoint source management practices to address impacted areas.
NYSDEC granted authorization for the various phases beginning in 2004 and site on the remaining phases of the urban renewal area redevelopment project is currently in progress.
