ENB - Region 8 Notices 1/26/2011

Negative Declaration

Livingston County - The Village of Dansville Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Wastewater Treatment Plant Improvements Project and Land Acquisition will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a series of improvements to the existing Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) located on land owned by the Village of Dansville, along the west side of Interstate 390 (1 -390). The improvements to the WWTP include a complete modification to the treatment process as identified within the Planning and Evaluation Study for the Village of Dansville Wastewater Treatment Plant, dated July 2010 prepared by MRB Group. These improvements are necessary to accommodate an expansion of the service area, replace aged equipment, improve process efficiency, improve sustainability, and rectify previous ad hoc improvements.

In addition, the Village has identified a need to expand the site in order to accommodate these improvements; therefore, they purchased the adjacent property to the south. The property is owned by Kenneth William Carpenter and is approximately 200,000 square feet.

The project is located at the WWTP at 1 Commerce Drive and the Carpenter Property at 9638 McWhorter Road in the Village of Dansville, New York.
