Amended Negative Declaration
Broome County - The Town of Windsor, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Windsor Sewer District #3, formerly called West Windsor Wastewater Collection and Treatment Study will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the construction and operation of a 6.0 mile wastewater collection system and a 115,000 gallon per day treatment facility to service an existing and a proposed development. A Negative Declaration was originally issued on March 1, 2006. Facilities that were considered to serve an area called the Fairview Heights subdivision in the adjacent Town of Kirkwood were show in the scope of the EAF Part One and Lead Agency Solicitation. These were dropped from the project prior to the Negative Declaration. Subsequent to issue of the original Negative Declaration and formation of a sewer district in Windsor, circumstances arose that motivated two changes in the scope of the project. One is action by the Town of Kirkwood to form a sewer district to serve the Fairview Heights subdivision, a developed area in the Town of Kirkwood. The other is receipt of additional grant funds to pay for facilities in the proposed Kirkwood sewer district, as well as pay for individual service laterals to each developed property within both sewer districts. The project is located in the Towns of Windsor and Kirkwood, New York.
