Permits and Applications

Weiden Lake and the streams that supply its water have been given some of the highest
water quality classifications set by the State.  Our streams are classified as
“A(T)”, grade A water supporting trout population.  
The existence of trout is a telling sign of the water purity.
Our Freshwater Wetlands have Classification II, the second highest the State gives.
Again, this is because of the water quality.  These wetland areas are valuable resources necessary for flood control, surface and ground water protection, wildlife habitat, open space, and water resources.
All of this is possible through the responsible use of our lake and surrounding forest lands,
and of course, what Mother Nature has provided.

Because of their value to the environment and the public, our lake and streams are protected by various provisions in the NYS Environmental Conservation Laws.
These laws are enforced by the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation.
Certain activities in our protected waters and wetlands are either prohibited, or require
an approved plan and permit.
Some of those activities include culverting streams, construction of buildings, roadways, septic systems, placement of fill, excavation or grading, clear cutting of trees and vegetation, installing a dock, and use of pesticides.
Restrictions can apply whether these activities take place in or near protected areas.
Many property owners along the lakeshore also have the added responsibility of dealing
with the NYS Protected Freshwater Wetlands, and the adjacent 100 Foot Buffer Zone.  

If at any time you have any questions or concerns regarding any project
you may be starting on your property, do not hesitate to call our local DEC office.
They are more than happy to assist you to see:
1) If a permit is required
2) What restrictions may apply to you
3) Mailing the necessary applications and paperwork to you
4) Assisting in developing alternate site plans, that benefit the environment
and the homeowner.
5) Making an on site visit to determine special needs

For some, hiring an Engineer to draw up the necessary site plans and documents is a must, but for others, the application process can be a do it yourself project.
State Law allows the DEC as much as 45 to 90 days on processing an application.
But for most of the projects at Weiden Lake, permit processing can be as quick as two weeks.  Also keep in mind that the Town of Tusten may also require a permit as well.
