Negative Declaration

Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens and Richmond Counties (Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island) - The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Amendment to Chapter 31 of Title 15 of the Rules of the City of New York, "Standards for Stormwater Release Rate" will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the proposed amendment of Chapter 31 of Title 15 of the Rules of the City of New York, the existing rules governing house and site connections to the city's sewer system. The proposed rule amendment would modify the flow rate of stormwater to the city's combined sewer system for new and existing development, as part of sewer availability and connection approvals. The proposed action would apply to development lots where new buildings (new developments) or alterations of existing buildings that would result in an expansion of building footprint or impervious surfaces (alterations) are proposed.

Additional information about the proposed action and related environmental review can be found on NYC DEP's website at: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dep/html/environmental_reviews/stormwater_release_rates.shtml.

The project is located citywide in New York City, New York.
