Project Description

Seaford Creek 8-11 002Wetlands preservation measures were needed at the Tackapausha Preserve in Massapequa, NY to mitigate the impact of the  decline in ground water levels that resulted from sewering in the area. Without measures to preserve the wetlands, the   ecological communities could have been transformed to drier successional or upland vegetation. D&B was retained by the NCDPW to design improvements to manage runoff, control localized flooding, preserve wetlands, restore ponds, attenuate storm water discharges, improve water quality treatment and increase ground water recharge in the preserve.

Seaford Creek 8-11 001D&B also prepared the required Environmental Impact Study (EIS) required under the New York State Environmental Quality  Review (SEQRA) process. The analyses conducted for the EIS were also the basis for applications for permits and approvals from  appropriate environmental agencies including NYSDEC.
