Negative Declaration

Schenectady County - The Housing Trust Fund Corporation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Rotterdam District #5 Wellhead Facility will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the drilling of a new well at an existing facility at 49 Rice Road (near Schermerhorn Road) in the Town of Rotterdam, New York. The casing of the new well would be elevated between two and five feet above the 500 year floodplain and at least three feet above the flood-of-record elevation. The Rotterdam Water District #5 wellhead project would involve establishing a well connection to existing pipes; installing a chlorinator, motor, and pump; and constructing a new building to house the pump and equipment and a paved access road. The new building design would be similar to the design of the existing building that houses Well #4. Chemicals for the chlorinator would not be stored on the project site.
