Project Summary

The applicant proposes the construction of a proposed three bedroom dwelling on a 0.58 acre parcel on Bluff Head Road (23.20-6-27).  The applicant proposes an onsite wastewater treatment system and well water supply.  The applicant proposes a rain garden for stormwater management.  The stormwater system required a variance from the Lake George Park Commission for installation of an infiltration device within 100 feet of a water supply.  The onsite wastewater treatment system was approved.  The applicant provided soil information based on shovel pits.

Waterkeeper Perspective

The Waterkeeper expressed the following concerns: the application required additional information including grading information and deep test pits.

Waterkeeper Comments

See Waterkeeper comment letter to the Lake George Park Commission December 2010.

Next Meeting

The Lake George Park Commission reviewed the stormwater variance request at their December 21, 2010 meeting.  The Commission had questions about the depth to groundwater and whether the rain garden would function.  The LGPC staff were comfortable with the application despite the lack of information.  The LGPC granted the variance without conditions.
