Negative Declaration

Greene County - The Town of New Baltimore, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Mill Street Pump Station and Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves upgrades to the Mill Street Pump Station and the Wastewater Treatment Plan (WWTP) as follows:

Mill Street Pump Station: The Mill Street Pump Station is located in Cornell Park and pumps approximately 75% of the Town's flow. It was upgraded in 2014 to better serve Sewer District #1. No land was disturbed as a result of this work. The $230,808 BAN that funded the upgrade is scheduled to be rolled over into short term financing with the proposed WWTP upgrades described below.

Wastewater Treatment Plant: The New Baltimore WWTP site, owned and operated by the Town of New Baltimore, was filled with approximately 7 feet of fill prior the construction of the facility in 1983. The current configuration lacks redundancy of critical processes, has insufficient operator controls/automation and has insufficient sludge handling facilities. Upgrades are planned for the WWTP which would address historical operational issues, address lack of redundancy, and increase the capacity.

The project is located n Route 144 in the Town of New Baltimore, New York.

Otsego County - The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYS DEC), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Site Preparation to Establish Forest Regeneration will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the application of registered herbicides to undesirable woody and herbaceous plants (beech, hophornbeam, striped maple and musclewood) on 64 acres of state forest to create conditions suitable for seed germination and the establishment of desirable commercial timber species. The abundance of these undesirable plant species present on the site are growing at a density that interferes with the development of desirable forest regeneration. Herbicide application is the most effective way to eliminate undesirable plant species that interfere with the development of desirable forest regeneration. The project is located in the Cherry Valley State Forest, Stands A-27, A-28, A-32 and A-33, off of Morton and Kniskern Road in the Town of Cherry Valley, New York.
