Negative Declaration

Essex County - The Town of Elizabethtown, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Town of Elizabethtown Wastewater Treatment Plant and Sanitary Sewer Improvements will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the construction of a new wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) and sanitary sewer collection system within the Hamlet of Elizabethtown. The collection system will include 60,000 lineal feet of 4, 6, and 8 inch gravity and force mains, three (3) pump stations and two (2) grinder pump stations. A proposed WWTP will be installed on a town owned parcel within the Hamlet off Woodruff Lane or on a parcel currently owned by the Fish and Game Club to be purchased by the Town outside the Hamlet. An additional 6,000 lineal feet of force main will be installed along County Route 8 to connect the Hamlet collection system to the WWTP if the Fish and Game Club site is selected. The WWTP at either location will include a 40 foot x 60 foot control building, access road, two (2) Sequencing Batch Reactor basins, one (1) equalization basin, two (2) aerobic digestors, headworks, yard piping and site work. The project is located on County Route 8 (Elizabeth-Wadhams Road) in the Hamlet and Town of Elizabethtown, New York.
