Dutchess County - The Dutchess County Water and Wastewater Authority (DCWWA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Red Hook Sewer District will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the DCWWA to establish a new central sewer system to serve areas in the Village of Red Hook and the Town of Red Hook with frontage on Route 9 (Broadway) and Route 199 (Market Street) to be owned and operated by DCWWA. The project includes the establishment by Dutchess County of a Part-County Sewer District, the acquisition of an existing privately owned Wastewater Treatment Plant (located off of Route 9 and commonly referred to as the Red Hook Commons WWTP), expansion of the WWTP, and construction of 10,000 linear feet of collection system. Additionally, DCWWA is proposing to own and operate the laterals and grinders along the proposed sewer system. This addition would add approximately 13,000 linear feet of 1 ¼ inch pipe for the connections to property owners along the proposed sewer district. Therefore, the total linear extent of the entire project would be approximately 23,000 feet. The project is located at Route 9 and Route 199 in the Village of Red Hook and the Town of Red Hook, New York.
