Negative Declaration

Greene County - The Town of Greenville as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Town of Greenville Sewer District Extension and Improvements will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal by the Town of Greenville to extend its existing Sewer District No. 1 to include the previously un-sewered area of the central business district and surrounding homes along NYS Routes 32 and 81. The areas to be serviced have small lots and soils poorly suited to conventional on-site treatment. As a result there is a history of septic failures. There are also several businesses which have surface water discharge permits which would be eliminated by the work. The existing treatment plant has sufficient excess permit capacity to absorb the flow from the District expansion. Plant improvements are also being proposed to increase the plant's capacity for these added flows.

The Greenville Town Board on November 19, 2012 declared its intention to be lead agency under SEQR for this project. After conducting a coordinated review of the action, the Town issued a Negative Declaration for the project on February 4, 2013. This action was published in the February 13, 2013 Environmental Notice Bulletin. Since that time, increases in prevailing construction costs have resulted in costs at or above the authorized budget amount. New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (NYS EFC) has offered a loan to the Town for project financing at a better than anticipated rate of interest, and thus the Map, Plan, and Report (MPR) were amended. A supplemental coordinated review was initiated this year, notifying all involved and interested agencies of the increase in public expenditures. The Negative Declaration was re-affirmed by the Town Board at a June 15, 2015 Town Board Meeting.

The project is located along NYS Routes 32 and 81 in the Town of Greenville, New York.
