ENB - Region 7 Notices 8/24/2011

Negative Declaration

Cortland County - The Village Board of the Village of McGraw, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed McGraw Water System Improvement Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the replacement of approximately 17,000 linear feet of undersized and failing existing water mains with new 8 inch and 12 inch ductile iron mains. An additional 2,500 linear feet of new water mains will also be installed which will contribute to improving the overall system by eliminating deadends, improving disinfection contact time and further enhancing fire flows. The work also includes the replacement of existing residential and commercial water services from the new mains in conjunction with new hydrants and valves along the route. Two other items included in the project are the installation of new tank water recirculators in the two existing storage tanks and the addition of a gas-powered back-up power generator at the Bennett Street Well. The project is located throughout the Village of McGraw, New York.
