Negative Declaration

Fulton County - The Town of Ephratah Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed CG Roxane Water Bottling Plant Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the applicant, CG Roxane to construct and operate a 128,623 square foot water bottling. The Village of Canajoharie will sell CG Roxane approximately 30 acres of land from its watershed for CG Roxane to utilize to construct and operate this water bottling plant. The Village of Canajoharie will also allow CG Roxane to construct two (2) production wells at the North Spring adjacent to the Village's Spring Reservoir and to allow CG Roxane to withdrawal spring water under the terms of the Village of Canjaharie's existing New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) Water Supply Permit.

The water bottling plant would contain three (3) main components. The majority of the building would be used for warehousing and shipping. The second component would be for manufacturing and the bottling of the spring water. The third component would be an office module.

CG Roxane anticipates operating the plant with two (2) production lines and have space available to expand to a third line. CG Roxane would commence the plant operations with one (1) work shift operating the two (2) production lines. One (1) line would produce approximately 54,000 .5 liter bottles per hour and the second line would produce approximately 8,000 1 gallon bottles per hour. The estimated water usage would be approximately 118,000 gpd. Approximately 12-15 people would initially be employed. When sales reach a point where additional production was required, a second shift would be added. The second shift would increase total employment to 20-26. Average daily water use would increase to approximately 230,000 gpd. When sales further increased, a third shift would be added. The third shift would increase total employment to 28-33. Average daily water use would increase to approximately 294,000 gpd.

The project is located at the intersection of Old State and Murray Hill Roads in the Town of Ephratah, New York.
