Positive Declaration and Public Scoping
Dutches, Orange and Ulster Counties - The New York City Department of Environmnetal Protection (NYC DEP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Delaware Aqueduct Rondout-West Branch Tunnel Repair Project may have a significant adverse impact on the environment and a Draft Environmental Impact Statement must be prepared. Written comments on the draft scope will be accepted until July 29, 2011. A public scoping session will be held on July 14, 2011 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Wappingers Junior High School, 30 Major McDonald Way, Wappingers Falls, NY 12590. A copy of the Draft Scope of Work is available at: www.nyc.gov/dep or upon request. Please submit written comments on the Draft Scope of Work to: Jennifer Farmwald, NYDEP - Bureau of Environmental Planning and Analysis, Office of Water Supply Infrastructure and Watershed Assessment, 59-17 Junction Boulevard, 11th Floor, Flushing, New York 11373, or via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The action involves the repair of leaks. NYC DEP proposes to design, construct, and place into operation a bypass tunnel in the vicinity of the Hudson River, and inspect and rehabilitate, as necessary, the remainder of the tunnel in order to address existing leaks in the Rondout West Branch Tunnel (RWBT) portion of the Delaware Aqueduct. NYC DEP will build a three-mile bypass tunnel around a portion of the aqueduct that is leaking in Roseton in Orange County, New York, and repair leaks in Wawarsing, Ulster County, New York. The three-mile bypass tunnel would run east from the Town of Newburgh in Orange County, under the Hudson River to the Town of Wappinger in Dutchess County, on the east side of the Hudson. During the connection of the bypass tunnel, known leaks in Wawarsing would be repaired from within the tunnel and a full inspection of the RWBT would be conducted. A shutdown of the Delaware Aqueduct would also require NYC DEP to implement a number of additional projects to supplement its water supply sources, and to ready the water supply system for the effects of the shutdown period.
Construction of the bypass tunnel and shaft sites would begin with construction of the bypass shafts, which would start in 2013 and be complete in 2016. Construction of the bypass tunnel would begin in 2015 and be complete in 2019. When the new bypass tunnel is complete and the additional projects to support the connection are in place, the existing tunnel would be taken out of service and excavation would begin to connect the new bypass tunnel to the existing tunnel and repairs in Wawarsing would commence. It is anticipated that 6 to 15 months would be needed to complete the bypass connection and to undertake the inspection and repair of the RWBT.
The project is located in Ulster County, Orange County, and Dutchess County, New York.
