Wayne County - The Town of Rose, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Town of Rose Water Source Improvements will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the water source improvements to the existing Catchpole Road and Salter-Colvin Road Well Sites. The existing treatment building at the Catchpole Road Well Site will be demolished and a new one constructed. The new treatment building will treat raw water from Well No.3, which is currently not being utilized due to treatment deficiencies. Other improvements to the Catchpole Road Well Site include new electrical service, new raw and finished water piping, and general site access and grading improvements. In addition, the existing generator at the Salter-Colvin Road Well site may be relocated to the Catchpole Road Well Site.

At the Salter-Colvin Road Well Site the existing generator will be replaced with a new gas fired generator. A new gas line will be installed to service the generator. Should conditions and budget allow, a new test well will be drilled at the site. The improvements to the well sites will increase the system's capacity to at least 1,120,000 gallons per day (gpd).

The project is located on Catchpole Road and Salter-Colvin Road, Town of Rose and North Rose, New York.
