ENB - Region 3 Notices 2/2/2011

Negative Declaration

Dutchess County - The Village of Red Hook, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Village of Red Hook Water System Improvements Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the following:

• Redevelopment and testing of existing production wells at the Firehouse Lane well field. The existing seven (7) wells will remain in service. Other wells which are currently off-line will be re-evaluated and possibly brought back into service.
• Installation of a new generator and new flow meters for existing wells at the Firehouse Lane well field.
• Installation of new wells at the Richard Abraham's Park well site. In addition to drilling new wells, a new treatment building for chlorine addition will be constructed as well as a new 8 or 12 inch distribution line.
• Replacement of the 225,000 gallon elevated storage tank on Tower Road with a new 225,000-370,000 gallon elevated storage tank.
• Replacement of approximately 20,300 linear feet of 2 and 4 inch water lines with 8 inch water lines along various roads within the Village of Red Hook.
• Nearly 250 lead water services will be replaced when water system improvements occur.
• Installation of the water meters for properties throughout the village.

The project is located along various roads within the Village of Red Hook, New York.

Dutchess County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Route 82 Sand and Gravel Inc. - Modification Proposed Deepening of Excavation will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant to deepen a 34.2 acre area of excavation at the existing 82.8 acre sand and gravel mine located on a 98 acre parcel. The proposed expansion area is totally contained within the currently permitted life-of-mine area. Current mining operations (excavation, sorting, crushing, washing, loading) will continue and a new long-stick excavator is proposed to remove material from within the 34.2 acre area in three (3) phases over a 15 year period. A total of 2,125,660 cubic yards of sand and gravel will be removed at a rate of 70,000 cubic yards per year, based on market demand. Excavation will intersect groundwater levels as mining progresses and final reclamation will result in the creation of a 20 acre pond at an approximate elevation of 306 feet above mean sea level (AMSL). (Current permit allows mine floor excavation to 320 AMSL.) Material will be temporarily stockpiled adjacent to areas of active excavation and allowed to drain prior to processing. Depth to groundwater is reported as between nine feet and 25 feet below existing grades. Depth to bedrock (reported as between 22 and 67 feet below existing grades) would determine the depth of excavation within areas to be deepened. The project is located on the east side of Canoe Hill Road, approximately 1,000 feet south of the intersection with NYS Route 82 in the Town of Washington, New York.

Rockland County - The Town of Haverstraw Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Local Law No. 1 of 2011 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposed local law to enact zoning criteria and amendments to the Zoning Law, as amended, of the Town of Haverstraw for the placement, construction and/or permitting of houses of worship and related uses in the Town. The project is located throughout the Town of Haverstraw, New York.
