Negative Declaration

Orange County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) 05 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposed total site disturbance of approximately 38 acres under identified alternatives of the BRAC Realignment at West Point. NYS DEC has jurisdiction over several components of the project.

1) The relocation of the Transportation Motor Pool (TMP) to Area V (on Route 293) and the construction of a new refueling station at the former TMP site to fuel military vehicles requires a Modification to the Title V air permit. The new refueling station is located on Washington Avenue (opposite from current TMP location). This portion of the project includes the following new emission sources: five (5) propane fired boilers at the new TMP at Area V; five (5) diesel fueled emergency generators at the new TMP at Area V; six (6) diesel fuel emergency generators at various locations (new refueling station, new preparatory school, firing range #14, south post, and entrance gates to the post); and new gas collection system and flare at the existing landfill. In addition, the paint spray booth at the current TMP will be relocated to the new TMP, new gasoline dispensing pumps and petroleum storage tanks will be constructed at the new TMP, and fuel tanks at the existing TMP will be replaced. TMP gasoline storage capacity and throughput will not change as a result of the proposed action.

2) The relocation of a portion of Sinclair Pond Brook (Class C) at the DOL Yard south of the intersection of Storm King Highway and Washington Road as part of construction of the new US Military Academy Preparatory School (USMAPS) at West Point. The applicant proposes to disturb up to 500 linear feet of stream channel in order to construct a new lacrosse field at the USMAPS campus. Disturbed areas would be restored and revegetated.

The project is located at the US Military Academy at West Point in the Town of Highlands, New York.
