ENB - Region 7 Notices 3/16/2011

Negative Declaration

Oswego County - The City of Oswego Common Council, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Combine Sewer Overflow - Separation Project West Side Sanitary Sewer System will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal of a series of upgrades and improvements to the existing west side combined sewer system. Improvements include separation of the existing combined sewer system into separate storm and sanitary systems. New storm sewers will discharge to the Oswego River. All improvements will take place in previously disturbed areas. Sewer separation for Phases 1 and 2 of the project will be bounded by West Utica Street to the north, West Fifth Street to the west, Gerrit Street to the south and the Oswego River to the east in the City of Oswego, New York.

Oswego County - The City of Oswego Common Council, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed West Side Wastewater Treatment Plant Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. In order to provide capacity to treat wet weather flows and minimize overflow events in the sewer system, the City of Oswego proposes to expand the existing West Side Wastewater Treatment Plant to treat a maximum daily flow of 12 million gallons per day (MGD). The proposed project includes additional pumping capacity, construction of two (2) additional secondary clarifiers and an additional chlorine tank and additional centrifuge for dewatering sludge. The proposed clarifiers and chlorination tank will be located in areas that are currently turf or paved parking lot, although these areas have been previously disturbed and are considered urban land soil type. The combined footprint of these proposed structures is approximately 6,000 square feet. The footprint of the proposed chlorination tank and proposed clarifiers will replace approximately 2,000 square feet of turf (i.e. 1,000 square feet each). Please note the fooprint of the proposed clarifiers will not add to the impervious area of the treatment plant, as they are open-top and will collect rain water. The proposed project will also involve placing unused tanks into service, installing additional piping and pumps, and changing some operating procedures within the plant. These latter changes are not anticipated to cause the disturbance of land, beyond that resulting from the installation of the proposed clarifiers and chlorination tank. The project is located at the intersection of 1st Avenue and West Schuyler Street in the City of Oswego, New York.
