Monroe County - The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation (NYS OPRHP), as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Hamlin Beach State Park Parkwide Sanitary System Upgrade - Project Modifications will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. A negative declaration was issued on February 17, 2016 for a parkwide sanitary system upgrade at Hamlin Beach State Park. The original project included construction of sanitary sewer force mains, new septic tanks and effluent filters for each building, pump stations and a centralized sand filter with a discharge into Lake Ontario to replace the aged and failing 25 existing individual septic systems that are in various locations throughout Hamlin Beach State Park. Since the original SEQR documents were issued, components of the project have been modified to further reduce impacts. The final design now includes eliminating individual septic tanks and pumping all raw sewage to the southern portion of the park to a package wastewater membrane "bioreactor" treatment plant that will be located inside a new metal pole barn near the Park's maintenance buildings. This new treatment plant will produce high-quality effluent which will be discharged to an intermittent tributary of Yanty Creek (near Moscow Road - the south property line of Hamlin Beach State Park). This treatment plant will replace the large sand filter system and need for a discharge pipe into Lake Ontario. Overall, the impacts of the revised project will be less than the original project. NYS OPRHP, as Lead Agency, is amending its Negative Declaration in accordance with Subdivision 617.7(e).

The project is located in the Hamlin Beach State Park in the Town of Hamlin, New York.
