Kings County (Brooklyn) - The New York City Board of Standards and Appeals (NYC BSA), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 9 Old Fulton Street will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

New York County (Manhattan) - The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed North River Waste Water Treatment Plant (WWTP) Total Residual Chlorine Reduction will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the NYC DEP to install a new dechlorination facility at the North River WWTP. The proposed dechlorination facility would be an upgrade to the existing WWTP. An additional chemical, sodium bisulfite, would be added to the end of the process to reduce the residual chlorine to below the New York State Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit level prior to discharge at the outfall.

The proposed action would occur within the footprint of the North River WWTP at 725 West 135th Street in the Borough of Manhattan, New York. The North River WTTP is a conventional secondary treatment plant comprising approximately 28 acres. All activities associated with the proposed project would take place within the existing WWTP boundaries and construction activities are anticipated to last approximately 30 months.
