Negative Declaration

Columbia County - The Village of Valatie, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Wastewater Treatment System Improvement Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves improvements to the Village of Valatie's sewer system. The improvements will include the installation of channel grinder and primary clarifiers to conduct screening and grit removal and the replacement of aged influent pumps as an immediate term improvement with modification of the original secondary clarifier into two primary clarifiers, conversion of the contact tank and digesters into aeration tanks for biological treatment, construction of a new secondary clarifier, conversion and expansion of the existing re-aeration tank into aerated sludge digesters and installation of a screw press to concentrate solids as long term improvements. The project is located on St. Luke's Drive in the Village of Valatie, New York.
