New York State Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Intended Use Plan

Draft Amendment #1 to the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Intended Use Plan issued September 28, 2007 was published in the October 31, 2007 issue of the Environmental Notice Bulletin. The comment period for the Draft Amendment #1 closed on November 15, 2007. The New York State Department of Health received no public comments pertaining to this amendment. Therefore, the amendment to the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund Intended Use Plan is final as shown below:

"The New York State Department of Health (DOH) and the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (EFC) amended the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) Final Intended Use Plan (IUP) dated September 28, 2007 to add a project to the Project Readiness List, to place a project that meets the eligibility criteria for emergency financing at the top of the Project Readiness List, and to adjust the estimated project costs for three DWSRF projects listed on the Project Readiness List. The explanation of the reason for the project addition, emergency determination, and project cost revisions are included in the table below:

Borrower County Project Description DWSRF # Current IUP Cost Proposed IUP Cost Explanation
Unadilla (V) Otsego Install new well, pumphouse, controls, chlorination system to replace GWUDI springs, New Surface Water Treatment Rule Compliance Facility, New Ground Water Source, Upgrade Distribution System, Upgrade Pump Station 15343 N/A $2,254,000 Place the project on the readiness list with a score of H and on the multiyear list with a score of 215 points. This project was excluded from the final IUP due to a data base input error.
Birch Hill Water Supply Corp. Dutchess Inadequate source capacity emergency, Iron, Lead and Copper violations. New Ground Water Source, Upgrade Treatment 17071 $299,040 $525,000 Place the project on the top of the readiness list in accordance with the emergency provisions in section 4 and attachment I of the IUP. The system's source wells have lost capacity resulting in an imminent public health threat and water is being transported in via tanker. The cost increase is a result of an update of the original project estimate to add in the cost of alleviating the emergency.
New York (C) New York New Surface Water Treatment Rule Compliance Facility, Croton filtration plant (Phase 4 of 16479) 17495 $100,000,000 $90,000,000 The cost decrease is a result of an update of the original project estimate by the applicant.
Antwerp (V) Jefferson Upgrade WTP, Upgrade Ground Water Source, Upgrade Transmission, Upgrade Pump Station 15057 $0 $264,253 The cost increase is a result of an update of the original project estimate by the engineer.


The Department has determined that the project addition, placement of the emergency project, and project cost revisions are necessary, reasonable and consistent with the original project concept. In addition, the scope of the projects has not changed. Although we have altered the project priority rankings to accommodate the project addition and placement of the emergency project, the project addition, placement of the emergency project and the project cost revisions will not adversely affect any other project on the IUP Project Readiness List above the funding line. Except for the above-noted changes, there are no other changes to projects listed on the Project Readiness List or to the project priority rankings."
