MASTROMONACO, PE PC <br />Consulting Engineers <br />13 Dove Court <br />Croton-on-Hudson, NY 10520 <br /> <br />RE: Larizza, North Ridge Street <br />Village of Rye Brook, Westchester County <br /> <br />Dear Mr. Mastromonaco: <br /> <br />In response to your inquiry, I conducted a follow-up site walk at the North Ridge Street site in <br />the Village of Rye Brook on January 15, 2019. The purpose of this site walk was to confirm that <br />conditions in the site wetland have not changed, and that the delineation conducted in April of <br />2015 is still consistent with site conditions. I found a number of flags still on site from that <br />delineation, and all were consistent with the current extents of the wetland. Therefore it is my <br />conclusion that a new delineation of the site is not warranted. <br /> <br />The wetland boundaries on this property are constrained by site topography and the <br />locations/characteristics of the existing stream inlet and outlet. Since conditions on site and in <br />the immediate area have not changed, it is not surprising that the wetland boundary has <br />remained static for the past four years. It is worth noting that the New York State DEC now <br />validates delineations for 10 years, in recognition of the fact that wetlands boundaries generally <br />do not change significantly over short periods of time unless there is considerable new <br />disturbance within a watershed. <br /> <br />I hope this answers your question about the North Ridge Street wetland. <br /> <br />Sincerely, <br /> <br /> <br />Steve Marino, PWS <br />Senior Wetland Scientist <br />Tim Miller Associates, Inc.
