ENB - Region 7 Notices 2/16/2011

Negative Declaration

Onondaga County - The Town of Lysander, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Whispering Oaks Sewer District Improvements will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves retrofitting the existing Whispering Oaks pump station and the installation of approximately 9,600 linear feet of 8 inch HDPE force main. The force main would discharge to the existing gravity sewer at the intersection of NYS Route 370 and Dexter Parkway in the Town of Lysander. The existing leach field will be decommissioned.

The modified project will include the installation of approximately 6,000 linear feet of 1.25 inch HDPE low-pressure laterals, approximately 41 grinder pumps and appurtenances for connection to the previously proposed force main. These connections and grinder pumps will be located at parcels fronting the proposed force main alignment on the north and south side of NYS Route 370. The alignment of the force main will remain unchanged, and grinder pump installation will be done on private property with the appropriate easements. The location of the laterals will be placed in areas of prior disturbance where possible, for example parallel to water services, walkways, and driveways. Laterals will be installed predominantly by means of directional drill. Additionally, grinder pumps will be installed near the existing septic tank and within prior disturbance of foundation excavation. The project is located along Ashington Drive, Penfold Way and NYS Route 370 in the Town of Lysander, New York.
