C. DKT. #454, LIBERTY HYUNDAI, SITE PLAN

D. DKT. #455, WOODCLIFF LAKE S/D, CAMPGAW ROAD
Notice regarding this matter was incomplete. The applicant will renotify and republish.
Peter Montalbano, Esq. and Herb Schlessinger presented a conceptual plan to the Board. The property will be marked with lot and block numbers. The property is located across from Glenmere Terrace. There is a pond and a dam located on the property. The dam has not been classified by the State of New Jersey.
The applicant had an analysis made by a hydrologist. This is an older dam which was built in the 1950’s. They have lowered the dam structure from 8 ft. to 5 ft. which puts it in the category of no longer being a dam. They need to detain the increase of water in the pond which accumulates during a storm. By lowering the dam structure they were able to create flows less than that which occurs at this time. They have asked the DEP for a determination as to whether they would take jurisdiction because of the very small drainage area. They indicated that they would not make a review. The applicant has made an application to the Dam Safety Committee for the lowering of the dam. They have three water quality structures and a sanitary sewer system. It is lower than the gravity sewer system and there are 15 lots, 6 of which will be on a pressure system which will go into the gravity system and enter into the municipal system. There is a potable water supply.
All lots are conforming except for the depth calculation. All drainage is handled internally.
The applicant has made application to the DEP for buffer averaging and discharge points.
Boswell Engineering and Kasler Associates stated that variances and/or waivers would be required for the culvert walls. The applicant disagrees.
There is an existing house on Lot 9 which will remain.
There is a homeowners association proposed to maintain the drainage system. Seven homeowners will own the pond.
The Board has requested that the experts who analyzed the drainage be present at the public hearing of this matter in order to testify.
There is an existing landscape berm that the DOT has installed and the applicant is discussing a continuation of the construction.
This matter was carried to May 19, 2003.
