Public Notice

Draft Amendment No. 1 to the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund (DWSRF) Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2017 Intended Use Plan (IUP)

FFY 2017 DWSRF Intended Use Plan Amendments:

DWSRF#18099 Brasher (T), St. Lawrence County - The project cost as listed in the DWSRF Intended Use Plan (IUP) is increased by $237,252. This increase is due to revised project cost estimates.

DWSRF#18102 Springwater (T), Livingston County - The project cost as listed in the DWSRF Intended Use Plan (IUP) is increased by $35,560. This increase is due to revised project cost estimates.

DWSRF#17622 Brocton (V), Chautauqua County - The project cost as listed in the DWSRF Intended Use Plan (IUP) is increased by $4,275,500. This increase is due to a change in the project scope and the revised cost estimate associated with that scope change.

DWSRF# 18338 Sidney (V), Delaware County - The project's public health priority ranking is revised from 115 points to 140 points. A data input error resulted in the project not appearing with the correct ranking.

DWSRF #18023 Rome (C), Oneida County- This project was financed with a DWSRF short term financing during the previous funding cycle and this amendment will place it on the Annual List at 1170 points with a zero dollar amount. Projects must be listed on the Annual List to convert a short term financing to long term. A data input error resulted in the project not appearing on the Annual List.

The New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) has determined that the amendments are necessary, reasonable, and in the interest of protecting public health. The amendments will not adversely affect any project on the IUP Project Annual List above the subsidized funding line. Except as noted above, there are no other changes to the IUP as a result of this Amendment No. 1 of the FFY 2017 IUP.
