Project Summary

Applicant proposes the construction of a single family dwelling on a 1.785 acre lot on Baldwin Road (160.26-1-1.4).  The lot is part of a previously approved APA project (APA Permit 2004-261).  The project was submitted to the Town of Ticonderoga Planning Board in July 2009.  The project will have wastewater service through the Baldwin Road Sewer District and have an on-site well.  The project required a major stormwater permit from the Lake George Park Commission.  The stormwater system required a variance from the Lake George Park Commission for relief the requirements for infiltration due to site conditions, i.e. clay soils.  The stormwater system proposed a retention basin with an underdrain.

Waterkeeper Perspective

The Waterkeeper has the following concerns regarding the application:  stormwater treatment should be maximized and recommended the removal of the low orifice to increase retention time and filtration; recommends the creation of bioretention with incorporating plants in the basin; and the discharge should be modified to create sheet flow conditions.

Waterkeeper Comments

See comment letter to the Lake George Park Commission February 2010.

Next Meeting

The Ticonderoga Planning Board expressed concern about the project at the October 2009 and tabled the application requesting additional information:  Site Plan, building location, driveway, stream location, stormwater management plan and septic.  The Lake George Park Commission reviewed the stormwater permit application in November 2009 and determined the application to be incomplete.  The Commission reviewed the application at the February 23, 2010 meeting and granted the variance with conditions.
