ENB - Region 3 Notices 2/29/2012

Negative Declaration

Westchester County - Westchester County, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Westchester County Airport Electrical and Deicing Upgrades will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the electrical and deicing upgrades at the Westchester County Airport.

Electrical upgrades include: (1) installation of approximately 380 linear feet of conduits for communication and electrical utilities north of hangar D; and (2) relocation of existing electrical and water lines on the south side of the Terminal, including installation of approximately 2,000 linear feet of new water main and conduits from the terminal building to the south end of taxiway J and a new switchgear station near hangar C-2. Following the site work, upgraded electrical equipment will be installed in the new conduits as well as existing buildings and structures.

Deicing upgrades include: (1) replacement of existing temporary deicing fluid collection system on the east side of the airport with a new permanent system, which will include the installation of two 40,000-gallon underground double-walled tanks, two 20,000-gallon underground concrete tanks, sampling stations, pumps, a truck-upload dispenser, and associated piping on the south side of the terminal and (2) the reconstruction of approximately 10 acres of aircraft apron/ramp and taxiway areas in the vicinity of the main terminal to include new drainage infrastructure that will connect to the new deicing fluid collection system.

The project is located at 240 Airport Road, Village of Rye Brook and Town and Village of Harrison, New York.

Westchester County - The Mamaroneck Village Board of Trustees, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Mamaroneck Village Comprehensive Plan Update will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the update of the 1986 Master Plan, to reflect existing conditions and set goals for the next 10 to 20 years. The first phase of the Plan was adopted in August 2007 and contained seven chapters outlining the project and vision, identifying the regional setting, providing data on demographics and housing, describing the Village's land use patterns and zoning regulations, identifying a series of planning issues and outlining a number of land use recommendations. As a result of the adoption of Phase I, the Trustees in May 2008 implemented several specific recommendations of the Plan, notably the revision of floor area ratio (FAR) and building height regulations.

Phase II of the Plan provided more detail on specific topics of concern to the Village: the industrial and commercial areas, environmental conditions, neighborhoods and housing, traffic and transportation, open space and recreation, and municipal services and cultural facilities. The second phase of the Plan concluded with a set of recommendations, including a map of recommended actions and an implementation plan.

The project is located throughout the Village of Mamaroneck, New York.

Notice of Acceptance of Draft EIS and Public Hearing

Westchester County - The Irvington Planning Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Draft Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Continuum Assisted Living Facility. A public hearing on the Draft EIS will be held on March 7, 2012 at 8:30 p.m. at the Irvington Public Library, 12 South Astor Street, Irvington, New York. Written comments on the Draft EIS will be accepted until March 17, 2012. The Draft EIS is available for review at the Irvington Village Hall, Building Department, the Irvington Public Library and on line at: www.turnermillergroup.com.

The action involves the construction of an assisted living complex; including 81 assisted living units and 40 units for memory care patients, as well as multiple interior and exterior amenities for patient use including group meeting rooms, a fitness center, beauty salon, walking paths and dining facilities. The total floor area proposed is approximately 105,000 square feet. Fifty parking spaces are proposed. Due to the fact that the proposed use is currently not permitted in the Multi-Family (MF) Zoning District, in which the project site is located, the proposed action also includes proposed revisions to the Village Zoning Code and proposed modifications to the Village's Comprehensive Plan. The project is located at 30 South Broadway in the Village of Irvington, New York.

Notice of Acceptance of Final EIS

Orange County - The Town of Wawayanda Planning Board, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed CPV Valley Energy Center. The Final EIS is available from the following locations:

Town of Wawayanda Town Hall
80 Ridgebury Hill Road
Slate Hill, NY 10973

Goshen Library and Historical Society
203 Main Street
Goshen, NY 10924

City of Middletown
16 James Street
Middletown, NY 10940

Middletown Thrall Library
11-19 Depot Street

Wallkill Town Hall
99 Tower Drive, Building A and B
Middletown, NY 10941

The Final EIS is also available on line at: www.cpvvalley.com and www.townofWawayanda.com.

The action involves a proposal by CPV Valley Energy Center which will consist of a combined cycle natural gas powered electric generating facility nominally rated at 630 megawatts (MW) and an interconnection substation. The proposed facility would generate nominally 630 MW of electricity, fueled primarily by natural gas. The facility would use ultra-low sulfur distillate oil for back-up for reliability purposes. The project is proposed to utilize "combined cycle" generation technology, one of the most efficient technologies for producing electricity. The project is proposed to consist of two combined-cycle units, each consisting of a combustion turbine generator, a Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) with supplemental duct firing, and a steam turbine generator. Auxiliary equipment would include a low nitrogen oxide (NOx) natural gas-fired auxiliary boiler, needed to keep the HRSGs warm during periods of turbine shutdown and to provide sealing steam during startups. The project is proposed to be equipped with dry low NOx burners and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology to control emissions of NOx, and an oxidation catalyst to control carbon monoxide (CO) and volatile organic compounds (VOC) emissions. The facility would be limited to operating on the back-up fuel for the equivalent of 720 hours per year, per turbine. Water use will be minimized by the use of air cooled condensers. Process water supply is proposed to be treated wastewater supplied from the City of Middletown's Sewage Treatment Plant (STP). Wastewater generated by the CPV facility would be returned to the City of Middletown STP.

The project is bounded to the north by Route 6, to the south by interstate Route 84 and to the east by Route 17M in the Town of Wawayanda, New York.

Ulster County - The Town Board of the Town of Lloyd, as lead agency, has accepted a Final Environmental Impact Statement on the proposed Mountainside Woods. The Final EIS is available from the Town of Lloyd Town Clerk, Lloyd Town Hall, 12 Church Street, Highland, NY 12528 and on line at: www.townoflloyd.com.

The action involves the development of a proposed residential community on three parcels of land totaling 153.07 acres. As proposed, the project involves the conservation subdivision of approximately 29.57 acres of the site into 162 single family residential lots. The remaining 123.50 acres of the site is on Illinois Mountain, an important scenic resource, and as a result of the project, this land will remain open space and be dedicated to the Town of Lloyd. The project also includes two small parcels of municipally owned land one of which bisects the project. The transfer will allow the applicant to create a more cohesive site design and to create an even right of way along Vista Drive. The project is located on Hilltop Lane and Vista Drive in the Town of Lloyd, New York. These parcels form an irregularly shaped area of land that is bordered by single and multi-family residences, municipally owned land, roads and facilities as well as privately owned vacant land. Illinois Mountain and the Town of Lloyd water treatment plant and reservoirs are located south and west of the property.
