Negative Declaration

Orange County - The Town of Warwick Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Frozen Ropes - The Warwick Yard will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves an adaptive reuse of a portion of the former Mid-Orange Correctional Facility. The 36 acre site consists of many of the original prison buildings used to house inmates. The proposed action consists of a redevelopment as an outdoor recreational facility including field games, a pro shop, and a cafeteria. The site is currently served by existing community water and sewer, which will continue to provide services to the new use. The project is located on State School Road in the Town of Warwick, New York.

Sullivan County - The Town of Fallsburg, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Loch Sheldrake Wastewater Treatment Plant Phase II Upgrades and Expansion will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The existing Loch Sheldrake Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) permitted capacity will be increased from 0.7 mgd to just over 1.0 mgd to accommodate an increase in sewage flow from residential growth. This will not increase the sewer system boundary/district, but the project does includes 4,500 lineal feet of sewer replacement and repair work. In addition, approximately 3,200 lineal feet of new storm sewer and bioretention basins will be installed in an area that currently does not have such. This storm sewer work will be a combination of traditional and green measures. The new storm sewers will discharge to an unnamed stream to the north of Evans Lake and eventually discharge to Evans Lake.

Upgrades to the plant will allow it to treat the additional flow and meet more stringent permit limits for nutrient removal (nitrogen and phosphorus). New tankage, buildings and piping modifications will be made at the WWTP. It is assumed the existing WWTP outfall to Evans Lake will be reused and no construction will take place within 300 feet of the the lake perimeter. Proposed work at the plant includes a new mechanical bar screen with building, replacement of grit removal equipment demolition of rotating biological contactors, new bioreactor tanks, fine screens and building, new membrane tanks with building, an equalization tank, new disinfection system, and various pumps, blowers and miscellaneous equipment. A new electrical system, instrumentation, controls, and HVAC equipment is also planned. The work also includes replacement equipment at two small pump stations located away from the WWTP.

The project is located at 1077 State Route 52 in Loch Sheldrake, Town of Fallsburg, New York.
