Negative Declaration

Oneida County - The Town of Constantia, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Bernhards Bay Water District and Onondaga County Water Authority (OCWA) Interconnect will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the formation of the Bernhards Bay Water District in the Town of Constantia and the subsequent installation of approximately 2.5 miles of 16 inch water main and appurtenances generally extending along NYS Route 49 and approximately 3.4 miles of 8-inch distribution water main and appurtenances to serve the Bernhards Bay Water District in the Town of Constantia.

The proposed project also includes the OCWA Interconnection, which involves the installation of approximately 2.8 miles of 16 inch water main and appurtenances generally extending along Martin Road to the abandoned railroad corridor north of NYS Route 49 through the Village of Cleveland. The water main would then continue easterly along this corridor into the Town of Vienna and then southerly along Hallenbeck Road where it would continue along NYS Route 49 to a point of connection to the existing 16 inch water main near the intersection of Drive 8 in the Town of Vienna. The interconnection would connect water facilities in the Town of Constantia to water facilities in the Village of Cleveland and the Town of Vienna thus alleviating water supply limitations currently experienced on the eastern side of Oneida Lake and providing a second water transmission pathway for the water districts. For purposes of compliance with SEQRA, the impacts of the OCWA Interconnection are being considered as part of the Bernhards Bay Water District project, although construction of the OCWA Interconnection may be pursued as a separate project.

In addition, it is proposed that the proposed project will be completed in two phases. The Bernhards Bay Water District will be completed as phase one of the project followed by the OCWA Interconnection (Phase 2).

The project is located in the Town of Constantia, Town of Vienna and the Village of Cleveland, New York.

Jefferson County - The Town Board of the Town of Clayton, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Adoption of Town of Clayton Local Law Number 2 of 2011 entitled: A Local Law to Amend Local Law No. 1 of 2007 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the adoption of a Local Law to further amend the existing local law that regulates the siting, approval, construction and operation of Wind Energy Facilities including windmills. The Law will lower the maximum noise levels permitted to be generated by Wind Energy Facilities from 50dBa to 45dBa when measured from certain off-site locations, to wit: Participating Property Owners Residences, Non-Participating Property Owners Property Lines, schools, hospitals, churches or public libraries. The Law also establishes the criteria for measuring sound levels which was lacking in the original Law, as previously amended. The project is located in the Town of Clayton, Jefferson County, New York.
