Applicant proposes the construction of a single family dwelling on a 9,599 sf property located a 365 Baldwin Road (160.26-1-14). The project will be serviced by the Baldwin Road Sewer District and have an on-site well. The project required a stormwater permit from the Lake George Park Commission and required a variance for relief from infiltration due to site conditions, i.e. clay soils. The applicant proposed grass swales and bioretention trenches with an underdrain discharge to Lake George.

The Waterkeeper has the following concerns about the proposed project: maximum stormwater treatment should be provided which would include increasing contact time with the native soils by raising the outlet elevation of the discharge pipe; the bioretention trench should be redesigned to increase the length parallel to the shoreline to increase infiltration; and a shoreline buffer should be installed.
See comment letter to the Lake George Park Commission February 2010.
The Lake George Park Commission granted the permit and variance with conditions at the February 23, 2010 meeting.
