Chenango County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Drilling Permit Application for - Gastem USA, Hanehan 1 Natural Gas Well will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the drilling of a natural gas well located within Chenango County Agricultural District 005. Drilling operations will be conducted in accordance with the drilling permit issued and rules and regulations of NYS DEC. The total area proposed to be disturbed during the initial construction phase for the well site and access road is 169,896 square feet or approximately 3.90 acres. After the well has been drilled, it will be put into production or plugged and abandoned. The well pad and access road areas for a producing well will be reduced to 78,414 square feet or approximately 1.80 acres and the remaining disturbed areas reclaimed. If the well is plugged and abandoned, the site will be reclaimed. The project is located approximately 4,590 feet north of the intersection of County Route 35 and Old State Highway 8 South and 950 feet west of Old State Highway 8 South in the Town of Guilford, New York.

Oswego County - The City of Oswego Common Council, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed West Side Sanitary Sewer System Rehabilitation - Area 1 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the City of Oswego to rehabilitate approximately 50,000 linear feet of sanitary sewer on the west side of the City. The work is fully contained within limits of the City of Oswego. All rehabilitation will be done to existing sewers. Most sewers are located in existing streets.
The majority of the work involves trenchless technologies, including cured-in-place pipe (CIPP), sectional lining, and remote pressure testing and grouting. The trenchless technology used will not require excavation and will not result in land disturbance. Due to the trenchless technology, no impact to the area is anticipated from this section of the work.
Of the 50,000 linear feet to be rehabilitated, approximately 1,000 feet of the project will require minimal excavation to a depth no greater than 12 feet. This is required to replace an existing sanitary sewer. The excavation will produce temporary, minor and localized land disturbance. No significant long-term environmental impacts are anticipated.
The project is located in the vicinity of West Bridge Street and Hillside Avenue and adjoining streets in the City of Oswego, New York.
