ENB - Region 9 Notices 01/13/2010

Negative Declaration

Wyoming County - The Village of Castile Village Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Water System Improvement Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the need for the proposed Water Systems Improvement Project which was identified after a Notice of Violation from the Wyoming County Department of Health was issued due to potential surface water contamination of the Village of Castile public water system finished water reservoir on May 17, 2009. Said Notice of Violation required the Village to undertake a study to determine the cause of such conditions and investigate all or part of the watershed or aquifer to verify any existing or potential changes in the character of the sources of water supply. The Village of Castile will address the deficiencies currently affecting their potable water system and add capacity to be able to provide water to Letchworth State Park. The project will include drilling and installing a new well along Tenefly Road capable of meeting the Village's future demand. Once the new well is online, the existing Willey well can be taken off line to be pumped tested and checked for ground water influence. Based on the outcome of these tests, the Willey well will either be cleaned and developed or another new well will be drilled. In addition to the supply improvements, the existing water storage tank will be modified to increase its capacity to approximately 300,000 gallons. In the tank, a mixing system will be installed to prevent stagnation and maintain chlorine residuals. The master meter along State Route 39 will be relocated to the treatment building on Tenefly Road and the existing station will be utilized for sampling and leak detection. Mainly due to age and material of the watermains in the Village, about 19,000 feet of the cast iron watermain will be replaced with either ductile iron or HDPE watemains. The project is located in the Village of Castile, New York.
