Project Summary

The applicant proposes the construction of a new home on an existing footprint at 5163 Sagamore Rd.  The house is located 130 ft from Lake George.  The applicant proposes 2 bedrooms (same as existing) and will be utilizing the existing on-site wastewater treatment system.  The system has been accepted by Bill Ball, Town of Putnam Code Enforcement Officer.  The applicant has received a Stormwater Permit for a minor stormwater plan from the Lake George Park Commission  (5346-17-07).  The stormwater system proposed a 10'x10'x1.5 sediment trap for the driveway and nothing is indicated for the house. 

Waterkeeper Perspective

The Waterkeeper concerns included:  the lack of stormwater management for the house and additional information regarding the existing on-site wastewater treatment system, including design flows and certification of the system.
