Amy Greene Environmental was contracted to provide a full-time NYCDEP approved environmental restoration specialist
to oversee the construction of improvements to the stormwater drainage system within the Lemon Creek watershed with an emphasis on the construction of multiple
best management practice (BMP) stormwater facilities designed to improve stormwater storage and improve water quality.
In addition, adjacent construction activities were monitored to ensure compliance with NYSDEC freshwater wetland permits and the approved erosion control plan.
Amy Greene Environmental provided a full-time on-site Restoration Specialist to monitor project activities including BMP construction, restoration and planting; plant salvage,
storage and maintenance; tree marking, removal and grubbing operations; and installation and maintenance of soil erosion and sediment control measures.
Our staff worked closely with representatives of the NYCDDC, NYSDEC, the NYCDEP, the general contractor and the on-site construction supervisor/project engineer
to ensure compliance with the New York State Department of Conservation freshwater wetlands permit conditions. Inspection reports were prepared and submitted on
a daily basis to the NYCDDC which included details of work activities, contract item quantities to be submitted for payment, photographs, site observations
and project progress. BMP LC-9 was monitored for a period of three (3) years following final acceptance and corresponding, annual monitoring reports were submitted
to NYCDEP addressing the condition of on-site vegetation and overall site conditions. We also monitored LC-9 as part of the contract required 3-year landscape
guarantee period which included supervision of maintenance work activities (weeding, watering, fertilizing etc.), providing recommendations to augment/remediate
areas with lacking coverage that included species, quantities and sizes for additional plant materials and proving recommendations to replace dead or dying trees
