DEC: Application Submitted For De-Watering of New Village Site

Description states that water will be emptied into the Patchogue Lake at approximately two million gallons per day.

An application for shallow groundwater dewatering associated with the construction of Tritec Real Estate Company's $100 million New Village plan was submitted recently to the Suffolk County Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC).

The New Village plan is set to bring 291 apartments, 46,000 square feet of retail space and 18,000 square feet of office space at the Four Corners intersection in Patchogue Village, at which the former Swezey's Department store was recently demolished.

According to the application, which was filed by One West Main Street Apartments Investors LLC, the groundwater will be discharged from the 10 and 23 Havens Avenue site into an existing storm drain that will empty out into Patchogue Lake.

The proposed dewatering will at times involve the discharging in excess of two million gallons of water per day, according to the description.

The application also states that it is open to public comment until Sept. 28, and that comments must be submitted in writing to a contact person listed on the application description on the DEC's website.

Patch has reached out to Tritec, DEC and Patchogue Village officials for comment on the application, and will update with more information when and if we hear back.

Squander Just to let you know certain studies were done by an engineering firm In particular test borings were made in the old parking lot on the south side of Lake Street to determine how far down you have to go to hit water.I am now going through an excessive amount of rust appearing in my drinking water,something that was not mentioned in any report. A small matter to a construction job the size of Lake St drd Zone but because the water mains in the area are subject to vibration,etc, All of this rust is discharged which causes damage to valves,pumps,etc.The big question remains unanswered by our Officials in Charge WHY WAS THIS APPLICATION TO DEC NEVER MADE UNTILL NOW???????????

Mr. Kemp this is the last time I am going to comment on this. I do not need your name to attach to anything that I have to say about noise issues. However you have to get real. This is a discussion. It provokes ideas. People can take from a person's comments their own take on things. If you are going to make comments you have to expect that people are going to have their own individual reactions. When they do it's fair as you have done to object it you think that some distortion may have occurred. That was not my intent if you feel that way. I am totally committed to reforming noise enforcement issues in the village of Patchogue have said so many times and done so independent of anything you may have said or done. I have clarified previously that you are not responsible for anything I have said about how the potential pumping of ground water at the Tritec site may bring about noise concerns. I truly do not know what else to say.
