Negative Declaration

Albany County - The City of Cohoes, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Cohoes Trails Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

Delaware County - The Town of Tompkins, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Hamlet of Trout Creek Community Wastewater Management Program will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the development of the Hamlet of Trout Creek Community Wastewater Management Program (CWMP) to eliminate inadequate individual on-site septic systems that are currently failing or may fail in the future and the Stormwater Retrofit Program to address water quality issues in the New York City Watershed. The purpose of the project is to improve and protect the water quality of the Cannonsville Reservoir Watershed and the New York City Water Supply and to allow the Hamlet of Trout Creek to survive and address future development needs. The system will be designed in accordance with the New York City Memorandum of Agreement with Watershed Towns, Ten States Standards, 1988 New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) Standards for Wastewater Treatment Works, and the New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP) Rules and Regulations.

The project will consist of a small diameter gravity sewer collection system that will convey septic tank effluent to community septic systems located on three sites. The projected design average wastewater flow is 16,000 gallons per day (gpd). The project will serve approximately 48 properties, including homes, commercial/institutional facilities, and vacant properties. To ensure that future growth can be adequately served by the proposed wastewater facilities, formation of a sewer district, adoption of a sewer use ordinance and development of a wastewater capacity monitoring system are included. To assist the community in providing adequate operation and maintenance of the wastewater treatment system, the Town of Tompkins will enter into an operation and maintenance agreement with NYC DEP.

The project is located in the Hamlet of Trout Creek, Town of Tompkins, New York.
