Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS

Albany County - The Albany County Airport Authority, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Albany County Airport Authority Runway 28 Obstruction Removal Project. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until June 18, 2007. The action involves the removal and replacement in-kind of two (2) existing water storage tanks owned by the Town of Colonie Department of Public Works (DPW) Division of Latham Water. The two (2) tanks are an existing obstruction to the Federal Aviation Regulation (FAR) Part 77 approach surface for Albany International Airport Runway 28 and are considered to be potential hazards to aeronautical navigation and to persons on the ground. The proposed action also involves: the construction of a new water tank on land owned by the Town of Colonie adjacent to the City of Albany's Loudonville Reservoir, the construction of a new 24-inch water main to connect the new tank to the Town of Colonie's water distribution system, and the construction of a new 36-inch water main to address the decrease in water pressure to the Town of Colonie's water distribution system due to moving the water tank outside of the airport runway approach area. A related action may involve the removal of the existing Ross Court tank, an older water tank located approximately 850 feet northeast of the proposed new tank site. The site of the new water tank will be the 11.8 acre former Sanderson parcel east of Albany-Shaker Road. A portion of the property has been set aside for water storage and access, and the remaining acreage is intended to be preserved as open space in its natural state with public access. In compliance with 6 NYCRR Section 617.7 (SEQRA), the DEIS document is available for public review during business hours at the Albany International Airport Administration Building, Suite 200 and at the William K. Sanford Town Library, located at 629 Albany-Shaker Road in the Town of Colonie, Albany County, New York. The DEIS is also available to review on the Albany County Airport Authority website at http://www.albanyairport.com/. The project is located on Utica Avenue, Town of Colonie, Albany County, New York.
