ENB - Region 1 Notices

Negative Declaration

Suffolk County - Suffolk County as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Proposed Drainage and Road Improvements to County Route 58, Old County Road, from Long Island Expressway to NYS Route 25 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the drainage improvements on County Route 58, Old County Road, from Long Island Expressway to NYS Route 25 in order to provide a positive drainage network that will minimize the occurrence of existing flooding or ponding of stormwater runoff on the roadway, while minimizing the impact on the local community and mitigating existing impacts to the adjacent freshwater wetlands. This project will eliminate the hazardous conditions and improve safety. Currently this corridor is developed with outlet centers, big box shopping developments and mixed use commercial developments. It is imperative to acquire ROW for stormwater improvements before all available ROW is developed. The project is located on County Route 58, Old County Road from the Long Island Expressway to NYS Route 25 in the Town of Riverhead, New York.

Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing

Suffolk County - The Long Island Power Authority (LIPA), as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Southampton to Bridgehampton Transmission Line and Expansion of Bridgehampton Substation. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on January 7, 2008 from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Southampton Inn, 91 Hill Street, Southampton, NY 11968. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until January 17, 2008. The action involves the installation of a new 69 kilovolt electric transmission line from the Southampton Substation to the Bridgehampton Substation. Four routes were analyzed. One would use the existing easements between the two substations. The second would transverse various existing roadways along the most direct route between the two substations. The third would use the Long Island Rail Road Montauk line right-of-way to Bridgehampton Sag Harbor Turnpike. The last would follow Montauk Highway to Bridgehampton Sag Harbor Turnpike. The transmission line could be above ground, under ground or a combination of both for any of the routes, except the existing easements, which would be all under ground. In addition, the Bridgehampton Substation would be expanded at a LIPA-owned site adjacent to the existing Bridgehampton Substation. The Draft Environmental Impact Statement is available on the LIPA website at www.lipower.org under the About LIPA, Powering LI tab. The project is located from North Sea Road to Bridgehampton Sag Harbor Turnpike, Southampton, New York.
