Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS
New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City Department of Sanitation (DSNY), as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Sanitation Garage and Salt Shed for Manhattan Districts 1, 2 & 5. The FEIS is available on the following website: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dsny/html/garages/newgarages.shtml. The action involves the proposal by New York City Department of Sanitation to construct a garage complex to house the equipment and personnel assigned to the Manhattan District 1, 2 and 5 Garages, respectively. The nearby existing District 1 Garage would be demolished and replaced with a salt shed. The 1.96 acre garage site is undeveloped and used by UPS for the parking and staging of truck trailers. The 14,575 square foot proposed salt shed site is on the block bounded by Canal Street, West Street, Spring Street, and Washington Street. UPS trailer and vehicle staging and parking would be on the garage ground floor (first parking level). DSNY vehicle storage would be located on parking levels 2 (for small vehicles) and 3, 4 and 5 (for large vehicles). Vehicle maintenance and washing would take place on level 3. There would be seven levels of office and locker room areas in the garage, located along Spring Street. Approximately 128 DSNY vehicles would be assigned to the garage, including 62 collection vehicles: 27 for District 2, 20 for District 5, and 15 for District 1. DSNY heavy duty diesel trucks would be equipped with diesel particulate filters. The garage would include environmentally sustainable elements such as solar design features and a vegetated roof. The salt shed would accommodate approximately 4,000 tons of salt and have two (2) underground storage tanks for calcium chloride. A 30 foot wide driveway on the east side of the salt shed would provide access via curb cuts on Canal Street and Spring Street. The site is bounded by West Street/Route 9A, Spring Street, Washington Street and the St. John's Center building in Manhattan, New York.
