Negative Declaration

Essex County - The Town of Essex, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Water District No. 1 Upgrades will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the development of subsurface production wells for domestic potable water serving approximately 180 structures in the community. Well
development and control building will replace a failing surface water and filtration supply which is currently facing New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) tribunal orders. Two wells and a control building with a footprint of approximately 1,500 square feet are planned on 4 acres of abandoned farmland on Block House Road. These new facilities will connect to the existing water mains located on Blockhouse road. The number of residents served and the amount of water needed are the same as the existing surface water source currently supplies. The project is located at 2313 Main Street in the Town of Essex, New York.
