Negative Declaration

New York County (Brooklyn) - The New York City Department of Environmental Protection (NYC DEP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed 26th Ward Wastewater Treatment Plant - Carbon Addition Facilities will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by NYC DEP to construct a supplemental carbon addition facility at the 26th Ward Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) to enhance nitrogen removal within the existing Biological Nitrogen Removal (BNR) Building. Glycerol would be added as an additional carbon source to the anoxic zones of the aeration tanks to enhance the BNR process. The facility would include above ground glycerol storage tanks, secondary containment and loading/unloading pads.

The proposed action would occur within the footprint of the 26th Ward WWTP located at the intersection of Flatlands Avenue and Van Siclen Avenue in the Borough of Brooklyn, New York. The 26th Ward WTTP is a conventional secondary treatment plant comprising approximately 57.3 acres. All activities associated with the proposed project would take place within the existing Plant boundaries and construction activities are anticipated to last approximately 18 months.
