Dutchess County

Applicant:

Poughkeepsie Joint Water Project Board

Facility:

Poughkeepsie Water Treatment Plant
Water Works Rd
Poughkeepsie, NY 12602

Application ID:

3-1313-00069/00004

Permit(s) Applied for:

Article 15 Title 15 Water Supply

Project is Located:

Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County


Project Description:

The Poughkeepsie Joint Water Project Board has applied for a Water Supply permit (WSA #10,823) to increase the total approved capacity of the Poughkeepsie Water Treatment Plant from the current maximum of 16 Million Gallons per Day (MGD) up to the proposed maximum of 19.3 MGD. The water would be used for current and future water supply needs in the City and Town of Poughkeepsie. The Poughkeepsie Water Treatment Plant has already been successfully tested at this higher operating capacity, and no new construction is necessary to operate at 19.3 MGD. The source of water for the Poughkeepsie Plant would continue to be the existing intake pipes on the bed of the Hudson River. No new construction would be needed at the intake pipes because the additional water will be taken by pumping at the same velocity for more hours per day. The Poughkeepsie Water Treatment Plant is located at 3431 North Road just south of Marist College, in the City of Poughkeepsie, Dutchess County, NY. Please note that the Lead Agency for the SEQR Determination later in this Notice should be the Poughkeepsie Joint Water Project Board, not the Poughkeepsie City Council.
