The Final Value (Column 8, in dollars) is determined by multiplying the Base Value times each of the three factors in succession (Column 4 x Column 5 x Column 6 x Column 7 = Column 8) Shrubs and small trees (those less than 6" D.BH) were valuated by a different method found on the Shrub Valuation Chart. Normally, such plants are counted in the field and a method similar to that used above for larger trees is employed, basing their value upon replacement costs. That method was not practical for this site. Instead, the areas affected were divided into vegetation types according to previously mapped data, as shown on Drawing 2: Environmental Analysis for Proposed Pipeline Corridor. Vegetation Types are listed in Column 1 (T.E.T. refers to the previously disturbed pipeline corridor). By adding the values of all the trees greater than 6" D.B.H. which are removed (Column 2) or protected (Column 3), a value for all the affected trees in that vegetation type was established (Column 4) Shrubs and small trees were determined to represent 20% of the total plant value (or 25% of the total tree value in Column 4 = Column 5). Of that total shrub value (Column 5), it was presumed that the recommended site protection and restoration methods would result in the saving of 50% of the affected shrubs and small trees. Column 8 indicates the value of that 50% which will survive. Of the remainer, it was assumed that 20% of the total plants would not survive (Column 7l, and that 30% mayor may not survive (Column 6)

PRELIMINARY REPORT ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYSIS AND SITE PROTECTION & RESTORATION GUIDELINES FOR A REVISED ALIGNMENT OF ALGONQUIN GAS TRANSMISSION COMPANY'S PROPOSED NATURAL GAS PIPELINE THROUGH THE LOANT AKA BROOK RESERVATION OF THE MORRIS COUNTY PARKS COMMISSION MORRIS COUNTY. NEW JERSEY

19 June 1986, with attached drawings I & 2 Prepared for ERT, A Resource Engineering Company Concord,Massachussetts ERT Reference: EMPC-2703 I ERT Project: 0927


INTRODUCTION The purpose of this Prellminary Report is to evaluate the impacts of construction of the proposed Algonquin Gas Transmission Company pipeline through the Loantaka Brook Reservation on the landscape character and natural habitats of the park, At the present time, the only alternate route traverses a residential corridor with two existing pipeline rights-of-way, The Loantaka Brook Reservation route has been designated as a preferred route by the request of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (See Figures 1- 3), During this preliminary investigation, we have reviewed the existing field conditions, vegetation, soils, topograPhy, hydrology, and other constraints relative to consideration of the proposed project (See Drawings 1 & 2); revised the alignment for the pipeline right-of-way; and outline measures for the construction zone widths, landscape protection, restoration, and management procedures to minimize adverse impacts on the park's landscape, This Preliminary Report and accompanying Drawings 1 & 2 describe the revised alignment, the criteria for its selection, and the guidelines for landscape protect ion, restoration, and management. I f the revised alignment and guidelines can be agreed upon in principle -- and with the clear understanding that these guidelines are only generally outlined herein and wi II be more fully detai led and scoped out once responses and comments to this Report are received -- we belleve that the pipeline can be built through the Reservation without long-term adverse impacts to the environmental integrity of the park, The revised alignment and guidelines were reviewed in the field (June 17, 1986) with David J, Dakin, Supervisor Of Field Engineering for the Algonquin Gas Transmission Company He has also reviewed these issues with construction representatives from the contractor who is installing the project, Napp Grecco, and has confirmed verbally that it i s possible to site and install the pipeline in accordance with the guidelines,

19June 1986 PRELIMINARY REPORT / 1


THE REVISED ALIGNMENT AND RIGHT -OF-WAY The revised alignment to minimize adverse environmental impacts reflects three major criteria: (1) to avoid the most fragile, mature, and unique habitats; (2) to use existing disturbance corridors rather than create new ones; and (3) to keep to upland soi Is where a narrower construct ion corridor can be maintained. The revised alignment avoids loss of unique woodland vegetation, both upland and lowland, skirts the wetlands, and reduces the number of stream crossings. The earlier proposed alignment was roughly 4,440 feet in length and the revised alignment Is roughly 4,250 feet in length. Existing trails in the park are followed wherever possible. The trails are already cleared of woody vegetation to widths of 12 to 25 feet even in the forest. The paved or gravel trailS, which are generally on dry ground and in good condition, provide access for heavy equipment on already compacted soils (see Figure 4). This will minimize new compaction of the soil along the construction corridor which was one of the most serious potential Impacts of the construction process. The pipe-laying machinery, for example, weighs 90,000 pounds. The use of existing trails on upland soils also permits reducing the width of the construction zone from 50 feet to 34 feet, using the stovepipe method of construction. In very short stretches, to protect existing trees or special features, this width can be further reduced to 25 feet. In the natural habitats, this will significantly reduce disturbance to vegetation and fragile soil horizons. Thus, the construction zone widths are not uniform, but vary in width from 50 feet In those areas where natural openings occur and or where open fields are traversed, narrowing to 35 feet through much of the forest, and to 25 feet In exceptionally tight or special situations. This variation In width not only responds to the park's varying ecological conditions, but also mitigates the visual impact. For further review and refinement, it is recommended that the revised alignment center line be staked in the field; our staff will review the alignment in the field with Algonquin and Napp Grecco to make adjustments and delineate the boundaries of the proposed construction zones. Once agreed upon, these zones will be laid out In the field, and fenced during the construction process with specific access

points and staging areas identified. The pathways which are effected would be closed to public park access during construction -mid-November 1986 through January 1987. The existing pat.hways would be replaced and additional plantings installed in the spring of 1987.

REVISING THE CONSTRUCTION ZONE The establishment of 21 34-foot construction zone along existing pathways is the most important modification of the construction process. Of this width, approximately 12 feet is already disturbed as path and shoulder and only the 12 additional feet required for the trench will be SUbject to major soil disturbance from grading operations. An acJditional ten feet of the corridor is required to accommodate the swing of the backhoe or for temporary stockpil ing of subsoi I in deSignated areas, and requires the clearance of obstructing tl'ees and major shrubs. Most of the subsoil can be stockpiled on the path surface itself and the machinery will work on top of it. Additional selected stockpile and phasing areas, if required, will be deSignated. In order to minimize disturbance of the ground layer at these sites, we recommend that 2 inches of sand be spread over the work area. The sand should be sufficient to protect the ground layer during stockpi Ie covering, and once the stockpiles are removed, the sand will clearly identify the pre-existing ground level so that the surface root mat can be preserved. The sand can easily be integrated into the final backfill. To minimize excessive compaction of ground surfaces, a minimum layer of one-foot of stockpiled subsoils will be in place prior to operating any heavy equipment over the area. A second major modification of the construction process involves the site clearance and subsequent restorat ion. I t is clear that conventional revegetation practices are completely inadequate to address the complex natural environments traversed by the pipeline. Forests habitats, for example, simply cannot be reseeded, and a complet.ely replanted forest is very costly to both install and maintain. The site does offel' a feasible alternative, however. There is an abundance of young woody vegetation wl,ich could be harvested from the site and an abundance of herbaceous plants, woody root stocks, seeds, and organiC soils which could be used for effective habitat reestablishment. The largest problem with reusing site resources which are disturbed to restore the site is that living materials,

19 June 1986 PRELIMINARY REPORT I 3


unlike soil, are very difficult and expensive to stockpile and rather should be used immediately to be cost effective. In the case of the pipeline, ideally plants and root mats should be collected at the front of the line and installed on the same day at the back of the line using a selected crew which we would train in the field. This process will greatly reduce the amount of seeding and replanting required while greatly enhancing the habitat restoration. For forest areas, those trees requiring removal would be tagged in the field with Andropogon. We wi 11 also designate trees which require a trained arborist crew to cut the canopy prior to clearing to minimize the likelihood of damage to adjacent undisturbed vegetation. Additional selective clearing and/or removal of dead limbs or dead trees which may pose potential safety hazards to the area will also be reviewed in the field and scoped out by Andropogon. The proposed alignment reduces the number of stream crossings to three, one of which occurs at an already disturbed site with an existing bridge. The other two crossings occur where the Loantaka Brook channel is relatively narrow and previously disturbed by the construction of two pipelines and a sewer line. A flume crossing is recommended for these sites to minimize dewatering activities. At the present stream crossing on the existing Algonquin right-of-way, the channel and streambank vegetation are in good condition, which indicates that Algonquin is familiar with proper procedures to minimize disturbance. Any small swales or drainage ditches which are disturbed by construction should be reconstructed to duplicate pre-existing hydro logic conditions. Special care will be required where the pipeline cuts across wetland areas. Depending on the depth and orientation of the so il strata encountered in trench excavation, special steps may be necessary to maintain what is assumed to be a perched water-table condition. Special construction devices and techniques may also be required in certain areas to assure that the hydrologic regime is preserved, so as to minimize impacts on fragile vegetation types. While these devices are not finalized, they will probably entail drainage structures and/or impervious barriers along the pipeline to maintain the hydraulic gradient. In other areas, modifications to present conditions to increase habitat diversity may be advisable -- for example, in the area opposite the ballfield, where wetlands are developing and expanding above the asphalt pathway; these

19 June 1986 PRELIMINARY REPORT / 4


wetlands are currently drained by a ditch and culverts beneath the path. It may be desirable here to modify the restored path surface where it crosses these wetlands to permit raising the water level , and thereby increase the extent of wetlands. Finally, detailing the scope of sediment and erosion control measures required for the work needs further review pending delineation of construction zone widths, access, and staging areas.

LANDSCAPE RESTORATION AND LONG-TERM MANAGEMENT It is recommended that all existing park features impacted by construction will be restored in accordance with a final sitework, planting, and stabilization plan to be developed by Andropogon. Restoration work will include bridges, culverts, paths, trails, lawns, and plantings. In some cases, the specific configuration of an impacted feature, such as a path or bridge, will be revised somewhat to create a more parklike setting in conjunction with the new right-of-way. In the open parkland areas, additional specimen trees will be planted to replace those lost during construction. In the natural areas, the amount of replanting will be dependent on how effectively the upper soil layers and herbaceous and woody vegetation have been harvested and installed on site. In the wetland meadows, additional plantings and stabilization measures may be required unless whole blocks of the upper soil mat have been replaced successfully. For long term - management, the corridor defined by the accessway and adjacent trench would be kept clear of major woody vegetation to permit emergency, maintenance, and repair servicing of the pipeline. The remaining 10 feet of the corridor, which was cleared of trees and protected from major disturbance at the ground surface, would be allowed to resprout and return to its previous condition. Normally, an Algonquin pipeline is inspected semi-weekly by overflights to spot third-party damage and encroachment of structures on the right - of-way. Because the Loantaka Brook Reservation is already a protected area, adequate surveillance can be maintained, which permits the canopies of trees to overarch the 25- foot management zone. An entirely open and sunny pathway would also be disruptive aesthetically, destroying the 'feeling' of being within the forest. Allowing this light shade to be maintained is critical to the maintenance of a healthy forest ecosystem, as sunny openings along the edge encourage colonization by invasive species.

19 June 1986 PRELIMINARY REPORT / 5


Specific guidelines will be developed for the control of invasive disturbance vegetation along the corridor itself, all areas disturbed and stabilized, as well as along a 50-foot wide band on either side of the corridor or disturbance area; these measures will augment the mowing cycle.

Note: Andropogon shall not have control or charge of, and shall not be responsible for construction means, methods, or techniques, sequences or procedures, or for safety precautions and programs in connection with the work, or for the acts or omissions of the contractor, sub-contractors, or any other persons performing any of the work, or for the failure of any of them to carry out the work in accordance with the contract documents, U.S. Department of Transportation regulations pursuant to the Natural Gas Pipeline Safety Act of 1968, and recommendations described herein.

Introduction The "Preliminary Report: Environmental Analysis and Site Protection & Restoration Guidelines for a Revised Alignment of Algonquin Gas Transmission Company's Proposed Natural Gas Pipeline through the Loantaka Brook Reservation of the Morris County Parks Commission Morris County, New Jersey", dated 19 June 1986, with attached drawings 1 & 2, was based on Andropogon's review of environmental constraints, It recommended a revised alignment and proposed landscape protection, restoration, and management guidelines, which have been agreed upon in prinCiple by all parties concerned, The purpose of this report is to recommend measures that minimize habitat disturbance during construction of the pipel ine as well as maximize efforts for effective habitat restoration, This report also includes a damage assessment for use in negotiations between the Morris County Parks Commission and Algonquin, The recommended measures and details in this report have been reviewed over the past two months with Richard Chisholm, Algonquin Director of Land and Public Relations, and David J. Dakin, Algonquin Supervisor of Field Engineering; Joseph Hagerty, Director, Quentin Schlieder, ASSistant Director, and Armon Magliaro, Park Engineer, of the Morris County Parks Commission; Joseph Napp, Vice-President of Napp-Grecco Construction Company; and Les Roman, Director of the Morris County Soi 1 Conservation District It should be clearly understood that Andropogon Associates shall not have control or charge of, and shall not be responsible for construction means, methods or techniques, sequences or procedures, or for safety precautions and programs in connection with the work, or for the acts or omissions of the contractor, subcontractors or any other person performing any of the work, or for the failure of any of them to carry out the work in accordance with contract documents, U.s. Department of Transportation regulations pursuant to the Natural Gas Pipeline Safety Act of 1968, and recommendations of Andropogon Associates, Therefore, when recommendations by Andropogon Associates, whether on site for reviews during the course of construction or in written reports, entail modifications to Algonquin guidelines or the Morris County Soil Conservation District guidelines related to soil conservation and sediment control measures, public safety

measures, etc., it shall be clearly understood that it is Algonquin's and the Contractor's responsibility to meet all applicable local, state, and federal standards and regulations for the work.

Construction Schedule & Review Policies Actual construction, including site clearance, as currently proposed by Algonquin, is expected to begin the first week in September 1986 and take approximately six weeks or less to complete, weather permitting. We understand that Napp-Grecco will probably work a minimum of six ten-hour days per week, but will not work during heavy rains. The following is the currently proposed construction schedule:

We recommend that there be a weekly on-site review meeting with all pertinent parties, including representatives from the Morris County Parks Commission, Morris County Soil Conservation District, Andropogon, Napp-Grecco, and Algonquin. We also recommend that minutes of these meetings shall be taken and distributed by the contractor and/or Algonquin representatives. Typical agenda items shall include: (1) construction schedule update; (2) status of site protection and habitat restoration measures; and (3) review of work in progress, problems, proposals, and alternates for the work.

15 September 1986 REVISED REPORT / 4


Rather than recommend full erosion and sedimentation control measures as part of this report, we concur with Algonquin's and the Morris County Parks Commission's suggestion that such measures be reviewed by Les Roman, Director of the Morris County Soil Conservation District, who will be on site during construction. Algonquin has agreed to follow SCS recommended erosion and sedimentation control measures, in general conformance with measures used during the 1982 pipe line construction in Hunterdon and Somerset counties. Les Roman considers the Park to be a top county priority, and has agreed to visit the site several days per week and attend site review meetings. We understand that this is agreeable with Algonquin and the Contractor. The Morris County Parks Commission and the Morris County Soil Conservation District recommend that construction take place in the warmer, drier months of September and October. Should the construction schedule be subject to delays, with major work tasks proposed for November, we recommend that such schedule changes be subject to the review and approval of the Morris County Parks Commission, the Morris County Soil Conservation District, Andropogon, and pertinent parties as required. Since major sitework into the fall may seriously jeopardize the likely survival of habitat restoration planting, it is likely that the work should cease, with site stabilization and protection measures reviewed and installed to protect the work during the fall and winter, and a new schedule developed, in which it is likely that major construction would not begin again until mid-March, or whenever weather and site conditions permit. Environmental damage to the park as a whole, and in particular to streams and floodways, would be greatly increased if the pipeline is constructed during the late fall and Winter, when the ground is wet and alternately freezes and thaws. Movement of heavy machinery over saturated soils wi 11 render many of the proposed ground-layer protection measures useless and will cause irreparable compaction. In addition, the proposed revegetation and soil stabilization measures -- both the removal and replanting of "ground-layer mats" and more conventional seeding techniques -- require a period of growth before cold weather, in order to become established and ho ld the soi 1. Should unforeseen damages take place during the course of the work, we recommend that a policy be developed on how such damages shall be dealt with. While it is understood that the contractor shall take prompt actions

\5 September \986 REVISED REPORT / 5


to remedy such conditions to prevent damage to the site and/or to adjacent properties and/or to remedy public health and safety hazards in accordance with applicable regulations, we recommend that, particularly where such remedies may involve site disturbance to the park beyond the construction zone, a policy be developed to deal with such events, which should consider: (1) photographing and recording the damage prior to any repairs; (2) emergency phone calls to pertinent parties in order to reach a consensus on the extent of immediate repairs; (3) review of follow-up damage assessment, repairs, and restoration measures as required; and (4) at the option of the Morris County Parks Commission, such required restoration measures may be added to the overall damage assessment should the Commission decide to undertake such restoration work on their own at some future date. We recommend this policy be developed and agreed upon as soon as possible, because we have experienced the unfortunate results when well-intentioned parties have gone ahead with damage repairs thought to be appropriate at the time, but that have in the end caused more environmental damage and required much more restoration work. Given the sensitive environment of the Loantaka Brook Reservation, such a policy is in the interests of all parties and the work itself. In conclusion, Andropogon appreciates the efforts of all parties involved in the review and preparation of this report. The review process was undertaken in a spirit of cooperation and commitment to quality. At every turn, all the parties involved have helped to develop and refine innovative ideas, with a willingness to try something new, and have shared the goals of this park restoration project.

Scope of Site Protection & Habitat Restoration Reviews, Recommended Measures and Details by Construction Phase

Corridor Clearance and Site Protections prior to Pipeline Construction Time span: late September 1986 Phase Summary: This phase begins with the installation of measures to protect the site during corridor clearance and ends with the complete removal of all debris from the pipeline construction zone and the stockpiling of woodchips in the Valley Spring Road staging area. This phase includes snowfencing of the work zone, including the two staging areas, and the closure of site access to the public from Woodland Avenue to the where the bike path crosses the drainage ditch adjacent to the ballfield, at South Street.

Recommended Measures and Details 1. SnoWfenclng, as per Detail 5 (Appendix B) and as shown on Drawings 5A-C: Site protection and Habitat Restoration Plan. should be a minimum of 3000 feet erected at one time. Snow fence must seal off the boundaries Of the entire construction zone, preventing public access, at all times, with adequate warning signs as required by appliable regulations. The remaining:: 2000 feet of snow fence should provide a rotating 1000 ft. work zone boundary. Trucks and other heavy machinery shall remain on existing bicycle or bridle path at all times. Snow fence to be Tenax ALPI Safety Fence, 4' x 160' rolls, orange color, secured to 5-foot metal or 2" x 2" x 5-foot hardwood stakes, I O-feet on center, wIth steel wire ties, minimum three per stake, as distributed by Atlantic Construction FabriCS, 15 September 1986 REVISED REPORT / 7


Inc., P.O. Box 581, 1304 Conshohocken Road, Conshohocken PA 19428 (phone: 215-275-4477), or approved equal. 2. Slit fence, no silt fencing is shown on the drawings. Because the site is flat and the construction period in each 200-foot section limited to 1-3 days, no continuous silt fencing is necessary. In special cases, where recommended by Les Roman, Morris County Soil Conservation Service, short lengths of silt fence should be installed. Silt fence to be Amoco Propex Silt Stop Sediment Control FabriC, 30 inches wide with 2' x 2' x 35-inch hardwood stakes, 5-feet on center, as distributed byAtlantic Construction FabriCS, Inc., P.O. Box 581, 1304 Conshohocken Road, Conshohocken PA 19428 (phone: 215-275-4477), or approved equal. 3. Staging Areas and Woodchlp Storage Area, as shown on Drawings 3A-C: Site Layout Plan. will be flagged in the field by Andropogon and David Sistrand, Algonquin Field Engineer, and snow fenced. All snowfencing recommended should be in place prior to the commencement of any work to assure that disturbance is limited to the deSignated construction zone. 4. Site Clearance and Tree Protection measures are shown on Drawings 4A-C: Site Clearance & Tree Protection Plan. Andropogon and David Sistrand, Algonguin Field Supervisor, will tag trees in the field over six inches in caliper within the construction zone that are deSignated for removal, and will also tag trees over six inches in caliper at edge of construction zone that are deSignated for tree protections. 5. Clearance of small woody vegetation will be done by a Napp-Grecco subcontractor with a brush hog. This work should be executed with a minimum of ground-layer disturbance so as to protect ground-layer mats. 6. Trees to be removed, as shown on Drawings 4A-C: Site Clearance & Tree Protection Plan. will be done by a Napp-Grecco subcontractor. This work should be executed with a minimum of ground-layer disturbance so as to protect ground-layer mats. Trucks and other heavy machinery shall remain on existing bicycle or bridle path at all times. 7. Tops of large canopy trees shall be felled first and/or be lowered by ropes into the construction zone only. Tops will then be chipped and stockpiled in deSignated woodchip storage area, as shown on Drawings 3A-C: Site Layout Plan. 15 September 1986 REVISED REPORT /8


6. Trunks of large canopy trees to be removed shall be disposed of off-site, by the contractor, but may be stored for a period of time in the designated Spring valley Road staging area. 9. Trees to be protected, as shown on Drawings 4A-C: Site Clearance & Tree Protection Plan, shall be pruned by a certified arborist approved by the Morris County Parks Commission and Andropogon Associates. Beech trees which have sustained major root damage during the construction process wi II be marked. During the restoration process, these designated trees will require pruning of a portion of the canopy, as reviewed in the field by Andropogon. Limbs should be cut flush to main branch or trunk. Limbs must not be lopped mid-branch. Where branches of smaller trees overhang the construction zone on the trench side, branches are to be removed only up to a height of twelve feet.

10. Follow-up tree protection measures, as per reviews during the course of construction, contractor will provide, two 100 lb. bags of a complete fertilizer, low in nitrogen, similar to 5-10-5, as approved in the field by Andropogon prior to the work, for application in the fall of 1986, to those beech trees designated in 9 above. Also, should severe drought conditions prevail, watering of these trees may be required.

Site Protection and Habitat Restoration during Pipeline Construction Time span: Jate September to mid-November 1986 Phase Summary: This phase begins with the installation of measures to insure minimal disturbance to the ground during pipeline construction, and includes site protection and habitat restoration measures during all excavating, pipelaying, and backfilling operations.

Recommended Measures and Details

15 september 1986 REVISED REPORT 19


1. Woodchip layer. Napp-Grecco Co. to place a four-inch layer of woodchips, as shown on Detail 4 (Appendix B) and Drawings 5A-C, and as reviewed in the field by Andropogon. If quanitites of woodchips stockpiled on-site are insufficient, Contractor shall provide additional woodchips or sand as needed. If feasible, woodchips may be reused from section to section. Woodchip layer will be placed on a plastic or geo-textile mat, such as Stuart Rock Stop, as manufactured by Stuart Steel Protection Corp., South Bound Brook, New Jersey, 08880 (phone: 201-469-5544), or approved equal, to allow for easy removal by machine. 2. Sand layer. Contractor to use sand, minimum four-inch thickness, to level proposed staging area as needed, as shown on Drawing 5B, and as reviewed in the field by Andropogon. 3. Construction Access & Start Areas. Construction access will be from both deSignated site entrances (off Woodland Avenue and Spring Valley Road) so that vehicular crossings can be minimized within the construction zone. Pipeline construction shall start in middle of the site and work out to the two ends, as noted on Drawings 3A-C. The goal is to complete pipeline construction and habitat restoration work for the stream crossings, the Texas and Eastern RO.W. area, and the oak-beech forest during anticipated warm, dry weather. 4. Ground-layer mats. Contractor shall remove ground-layer mats in forest or wet-meadow areas from deSignated sections of the construction zone, primari ly the trench area as shown on Detai 1 4 (Appendix B). This operation is to be done each morning before a new section of trench is opened. The ground-layer mats should be replanted on properly prepared areas of trench at the end of each day. While some loss is inevitable, it is estimated that no more than 20% of the mats will be unusable. Where mats are badly broken, the upper layers of the forest soil should be spread over the subsoil surface and tamped lightly. In the event that the survival of vegetation of either broken or whole mats is deemed inadequate for erosion control by representatives of Andropogon, Algonquin, Morris County Soil Conservation Service and Morris County Parks Commission, the Contractor will seed any deSignated areas with annual rye. The seeding rate will be determined in the field based on extent of unstabilized area and local conditions. The seeded areas will then be covered with Erosion Control Blanket S75, 100% Straw blanket, available from North American Green, Inc., 14649 Highway 41 North, Evansville, Indiana 47711 (phone 812-867-7266). Should there be any area 15 September 1986 REVISED REPORT / 10


(e)

Trench to be sheeted through floodway and wetland areas, and where required by soi I conditions to prevent collapse of trench.

(f)

Floodway muck to be stabilized by ground-layer mats of sensitive fern dug from the Frelinghuysen Arboretum by Arboretum staff and brought to the site by Arboretum staff a day before planting. A Napp-Grecco supervisor will coordinate the scheduling of this operation with Quentin Schlieder, Assistant Director of the Morris County Parks Commission. Andropogon staff will estimate the square footage of area to be stabilized and notify Quentin Schlieder. Morris County Parks Commission Staff and Andropogon wi II plant the ferns.

(g)

In the event that there is an insufficient number of sensitive fern mats, Contractor shall seed remaining bare areas of the floodway immediately after backfilling and grading, with the following grass mix, but as reviewed and approved prior to seeding work: Grass type: Kentucky 31 Creeping Red Fescue Kentucky bluegrass Red top

Lbs IAcre: 65 25

20 6

No liming or fertilizing. (h)

Immediately after backfi II ing and grading, stabi I i1 ize all disturbed streambanks with above grass mix. Seeded areas shall then be covered with Erosion Control Blanket C-125, available from North American Green, Inc., Evansville, Indiana (phone: 812-867-7266). Secure blanket with wooden pegs instead of metal staples provided with product.

(0

All backwater channels and drainage ditches disturbed during construction shall be restored to previous condit ions. Drainage adjacent to the bikeway is the result of drainage safety corrections and additions to allow summer and winter use of this path. All drainage ditches including unobtrusive diversions were added to prevent water build-up on paths. Should existing drainage pipes be damaged or disturbed, replace with a 12-inch

15 September 1986 REVISED REPORT I 12


diameter concrete pipe, 16 feet long or as required. All drainage pipes within the construction area that are not replaced should be cleaned upon completion of construction.

(j)

During restoration of drainage ditch running along edge of the large herbaceous wetland in the South Street and Spring Valley Road area, the Contractor should install an impervious barrier of bulk delivered clay, as shown on Detail 3 (Appendix B). The purpose of this clay barrier is to insure that path is properly drained and the wetlands above retain as great or greater amounts of water. However, if implementation of this recommendation causes a reccurrance of the drainage problem, and the fault is not due to improper installation, Algonguin Gas Transmission Company should not be held responsible.

Park Restoration Time span: late October to mid-November 1986 Phuse Summary: This phase may overlap pipeline construction taking place In other areas of the park, but the bulk of the work Includes removal of temporary site protections (such as the woodchip and sand layers), and the Installation and restoration of park features, such as the bike and bridle paths, etc.

Recommended Measures and Details 1. Removal of Temporary Site Protections. If woodchips were not removed as each section was finished, remove woodchips by machine where layer is thick. Rake or shovel remaining woodchips by hand or scatter from the mat with an air compressor over larger area of forest floor beyond the work zone. No woodchips or topSOil should be placed under bicycle path to avoid settlement. Remove sand layer in forest staging area by machine to thickness of 2-3 inches Hand rake or shovel remaining sand and scatter over a larger area of forest floor beyond the work zone, as reviewed in the field by Andropogon.

15 September 1986 REVISED REPORT / 13


where slope exceeds the manufacturers recommendations for use of 575, Erosion Control Blanket 5150 will be substituted. If ground-layer mats cannot be replaced on the same day and the holding time exceeds 24 hours, mats shall be stored in the nearest completed work zone and placed on the bicycle or bridle path track. Mats shall be layed out singly and not stacked. During storage mats shall be covered with burlap and wetted lightly but not saturated. when necessary, to maintain mOisture in the soil. Techniques and machinery for removing, transporting, and replanting ground-layer mats will be reviewed in the field with Joe Napp of Napp-Grecco Co. and Andropogon prior to and during the actual work. 5. Temporary Subsoil Fill Areas. Subsoil from trench is to be placed on "working" side of the construction zone to serve as a track for sideboom, as shown on Detail 4 (Appendix B). Wherever possible, subsoil fill areas should coinCide with existing bike or bridle paths. Note that special precautions and measures apply for floodway and wetland areas, as noted in 6 below.

6. Special measures for stream and wetland crOSSings: (a)

Contractor to use flume pipes where construction impacts Loantaka Brook to keep stream flowing and minimize disturbance of brook.

(b)

Vehicular traffic through streams should be kept to a minimum. Sections of pipe should be prefabricated on dry ground and pulled into place. Mud boards or swamp mats should be used to support any necessary construction equipment on floodway or wet meadow areas

(c)

Wetland muck from trench should be placed in corral. with proper site protections, such as hay-bale and/or silt fence lines, etc. The location, design, and site protections of corral will be reviewed in the field, with Les Roman, Director of the Morris County Soil Conservation District, and Andropogon.

(d)

If wetland excavation penetrates an impermeable soi11ayer which maintains a high, or perched, water table, measures shall be taken to restore this impermeable layer and prevent leakage, such as sealing the excavation with an impervious layer of bentonite clay.

15 September 1986 REVISED REPORT / 11


2. Path Layout. contractor shall stake out new path alignments, as shown on Drawings 3A-C, in the field and review with Andropogon and Quentin Schlieder, and Armon Magliaro of the Morris County Parks Commission, 3. Review of Bike Paths disturbed by construction. All disturbed, cracked, and depressed areas of asphalt pavement should be removed from site and replaced, 4. Bike Path Restoration. Contractor shall be responsible for repairing subgrade and laying new asphalt as required and where needed, The bikepath pavement subgrade should be brought to required subgrade elevations using graded sizes of quarry process stone, The final subgrade layer should be 3/4-inch stone, four inches thick, Asphalt pavement as recommended by the Morris County Parks Commission, shall be 1-112 inches of CABC compacted bituminous binder course and 1-112 inches of FABC bituminous wearing surface, Bikepath shoulders, as recommended by the Morris County Parks Commission, shall be 3/4 inch quarry process stone, two feet in width, and rolled with a taper that is flush with the pavement along the path's edge, and sloped 2 inches below this elevation at the outside edge of the shoulder, to assure positive surface drainage of the bike path, 5, Bridle Path Restoration, Contractor shall be responsible for repairing subgrade and restoring bridle paths as required and where needed, The bridle path sub grade should be brought to required subgrade elevations using excess subsoil from trench backfilL For new section of bridle path, remove ground-layer mats and use where needed, Bring subgrade to required elevations with excess subsoil from trench backfill. Bridle path finish course, as recommended by the Morris County Parks Commission, shall consist of an approved quarry screening mix, two inches in thickness, rolled lightly, For removal of old bridle path section and forest restoration, rototill or otherwise scarify ground, to depth of four inches, avoiding damage to major tree roots, Cover ground with two inches of woodchips or leaf 1itter, 6.

Appendix A: Drawings Summary This report includes as attachments the following three sets of drawings, all dated 15 August 1986, revised 8 September 1986.

Drawings 3A-C: Site Layout Plan These drawings show the centerline of the pipeline, the thirty-five-foot wide construction zone, the fifteen-foot wide R.O.w., the two major on-site staging areas, one woodchip storage area, proposed bike and bridle path realignments and restored bridge. It was agreed with Algonquin and the Morris County Parks Commission that the proposed centerline of the pipeline would remain flexible to allow for minor adjustments in the field. Any changes will be determined in the field by David Sistrand and Andropogon Associates. Shortly after completion of construction, Algonquin would produce a reproducible-mylar survey of "as-built" conditions.

Drawings 4A-C: Site Clearance &: Tree Protection Plan These drawings show canopy trees over six inches in caliper within the construction zone to be removed and canopy trees over six inches in caliper at the edge of the construction zone to be protected.

Drawings 5A-C: Site Protection &: Habitat Restoration Plan These drawings show the extent of snowfencing to llmit construction activities to deSignated construction zone. It was agreed with Algonquin and the Morris county Parks CommiSSion that site protection measures shall remain flexible to allow for adjustments as required, in accordance with recommendations in the field by Les Roman, Director of the Morris county 5011 Conservation District, and Andropogon.

Appendix C: Damage Assessment SUMMARY OF METHODS USED FOR VALUATING TREES & SHRUBS REMOVED OR PROTECTED DURING CONSTRUCTION The most widely recognized and accepted methods of valuating trees and shrubs which are in place on any site are those established by the International Society of Arboriculture in their Guide for Establishing Values of Trees and Other Plants, sixth edition (March 1983). This guide has been used in determining the values shown on the attached Tree Valuation Charts #1 & #2 and the Shrub Valuation Chart. All trees greater than 6" in diameter at breast height (D.S.H.) were noted in the field and mapped on the final alignment drawings by Andropogon. As shown on Drawings 4A-C, trees to be removed are indicated with an open circle and trees to be protected are indicated with a filled circle. A rough estimate of the D.S.H. was assigned in the field to each tree and the species and condition of the trees were also noted. Columns I & 2 of the Tree Valuation Charts describe the species and the diameter at breast height (D.S.H. in inches) of each tree. Trees larger than 12" D.S.H. are valuated by the following procedure. First, a base value for the tree was determined by calculating the area of the stem at breast height, noted in Column 3 (radius squared multiplied by PH3. 141), and multiplying that figure by $22 for each square inch, which yields the Sase Value, noted in Column 4. Trees less than 12" D.S.H. are assigned a base value according to their replacement cost via commercial nurseries, hence the notation #VALUE, for those trees in Column 3. Column 4 indicates the base value (in dollars) for each tree. Each tree is then rated according to three factors critical to their valuation: Species (Column 5), Condition (Column 6), and Location (Column 7). For each factor, the tree is assigned a rating from 1% to 100% based on a complex of factors which can be found in the I.S.A. Guide. These ratings appear in the above-mentioned columns for each tree.

15 September 1986 REVISED REPORT APPENDI CES / A- 9


The Final Value (Column 8, in dollars) is determined by multiplying the Base Value times each of the three factors in succession (Column 4 x Column 5 x Column 6 x Column 7 = Column 8). Shrubs and small trees (those less than 6" D.B.H.l were valuated by a different method found on the Shrub Valuation Chart. Normally, such plants are counted in the field and a method similar to that used above for larger trees is employed, basing their value upon replacement costs. That method was not practical for this site. Instead, the areas affected were divided into vegetation types according to previously mapped data, as shown on Drawing 2: Environmental Analysis for Proposed Pipeline Corridor. Vegetation Types are listed in Column I (T.E.T. refers to the previously disturbed pipeline corridor). By adding the values of all the trees greater than 6" D.B.H. which are removed (Column 2) or protected (Column 3), a value for all the affected trees in that vegetation type was established (Column 4). Shrubs and small trees were determined to represent 20% of the total plant value (or 25% of the total tree value in Column 4 = Column 5). Of that total shrub value (Column 5), it was presumed that the recommended site protection and restoration methods would result in the saving of 50% of the affected shrubs and small trees. Column 8 indicates the value of that 50% which will survive. Of the remainer, it was assumed that 20% of the total plants would not survive (Column 7), and that 30% mayor may not survive (Column 6).
