Negative Declaration

Nassau County - The Water Authority of Great Neck North, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Storm Mitigation Improvements Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the Storm Mitigation Improvements Project (DWSRF Project #18146) will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The project involves elevating certain public water supply wellheads and associated equipment to protect these supply wells and minimize the risk of well damage or disruption of services during future flood events and allow WAGNN to maintain essential water supply services. Automatic standby generators would be installed at select supply well locations, enabling WAGNN to keep these wells operating during power outages to supply potable water and ensure proper water pressure to meet critical fire flow demand, maintaining uninterrupted supply and adequate fire protection. A new portable generator would be purchased to give WAGNN the flexibility to bring emergency power to locations that need it to respond to power losses due to storms and electrical service grid problems. The project will be completed entirely on WAGNN owned property and will primarily involve in-kind replacement of equipment and structures. The Supply Wells are located on Watermill Lane, Weybridge Road and Ravine Road in Great Neck, New York; Old Mill Road in Saddle Rock, New York; and Juniper Drive in Great Neck Estates, New York.
