Negative Declaration - Amended

Dutchess County - The Village of Pawling, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Village of Pawling Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) Upgrade as amended will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves an upgrade of the existing municipal WWTP located at 37 Corbin Road in the Village of Pawling, New York, just south of the Town/Village boundary on a 8.1 acre parcel. The upgrade is necessary due to the age and limited useful life of the existing WWTP, inflow and infiltration problems during wet weather flows, and the plant's inability to comply with the current New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC) State Pollution Discharge Elimination System (SPDES) permit. The project will increase the plant's treatment capacity from 320,000 gpd to 750,000 gpd. All proposed disturbance for the originally reviewed project was located within the existing fenced area of the site. The amended site plan now includes a total of 2.7 acres of disturbance. Disturbance outside of the fenced area is mostly lawn area, with 0.3 acre of disturbance that involves removal of trees. The proposed improvements include but are not limited to an upgrade to the influent pump station; a new head works and equipment to remove screenings and grit and also provide flow splitting; a new Sequencing Batch Reactor treatment system; chemical storage and feed systems to provide for phosphorus removal; tertiary filtration replacement; new ultraviolet disinfection equipment and re-aeration equipment; additional digester capacity and a switch to an aerobic/anoxic digestion process; solids dewatering; and demolition and re-piping of existing facilities as necessary.

Negative Declaration - Amended

Orange County - The Orange County Legislature, as lead agency, has amended its previous determination which was published in the May 28, 2014 Environmental Notice Bulletin and had been adopted by the Orange County Legislature on May 1, 2014 in relation to the proposed Reconstruction, Renovation and/or Expansion of the Orange County Government Center Building. The amended determination, by the Orange County Legislature, adopted May 7, 2015, determined that the proposed Reconstruction, Renovation and/or Expansion of the Orange County Government Center Building (a Type 1 Action) will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. Since the prior determination of May 1, 2014, the project has changed as described in the revised Environmental Assessment Form on file with the Orange County Legislature. The County Legislature therefore, as Lead Agency, amended their prior determination so that the project changes are formally recognized by the Lead Agency. The changes, in sum and substance, are that the front three story addition to the front of building (the Main Street side) and the one-story addition to the side of the building (closer to Erie Street), as initially planned, will be eliminated. The back addition will become four stories rather than the previously planned three stories. Previously, it was estimated that the total building would be approximately 180,000 +/- square feet. As a result of the architectural and engineering work done to date, it has been determined that the actual building project will be approximately 200,500 +/- square feet. The scope of work includes complete interior/exterior renovations, and/or removal (new partitions, finishes, doors, roofing, windows, façade, etc.); ADA-compliant accessibility (new/upgraded elevators and ramps, etc.); replacement of mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems; new construction, site improvements (including renovated parking areas; repair/replace paving, sidewalks, curbs, etc.; storm drainage improvements, landscaping, new site lighting, etc.). The action is needed to meet Orange County Government's functional and programmatic needs in an energy-efficient design which is building code and ADA compliant. The project is located at 255-257 Main Street Goshen, New York.
