Putnam County - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Replacement of Sewage Treatment System will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the replacement of the existing waste water treatment plant at the Taconic Outdoor Education Center with a new subsurface discharge facility. The existing plant is an early 1970's package treatment plant that uses an activated sludge treatment process. Many of the key components of this system are in poor condition and failing to the point where is it is no longer feasible to repair them.
The new subsurface system will be constructed in close proximity to Lakeside Cabin colony and the Highland Lodge at TOEC as it will service nearly all of the facilities at the center. Sections of the existing wastewater collection system will be rehabilitated. Lines that are not used will be abandoned in place. The existing plant will be demolished and the area restored. The new system will include the installation of new septic tanks, a 6,000 gallon grease trap, new force mains, a pump chamber, distribution box dosing chambers and absorption fields. The project will encompass a total of approximately 3 acres.
The project is located at the Taconic Outdoor Education Center, Fahnestock State Park in the Town of Putnam Valley, New York.
