Negative Declaration

Monroe County - The Town of Irondequoit Town Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Permanent Department of Pubic Works (DPW) Facility will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves a proposal to construct a new DPW Facility to replace its existing facility which was destroyed by fire. The new DPW Facility will be located on a site east of the Route 104/I-590 intersection in the vicinity of 2629 East Ridge Road in the Town of Irondequoit, New York. The proposed action also involves the transfer of real property involving the Town purchase of 12.5 acres of New York State Department of Transportation (NYS DOT) vacant right-of-way (ROW), and the donation of 9.75 acres of Town owned land to the State. The action may include the purchase of property owned by Monroe County Pure Waters to be used for access.

The new DPW Facility will consist of a campus with the main DPW garage building (one-story, approximately 30,000 square foot building) as well as related buildings for office and storage/garage space. Site improvements include asphalt driveway(s) and surface parking lots. Additional out-buildings to be relocated to the site will include the salt barn, top soil barn and cold storage buildings, along with a fuel island. The facility will encompass a maximum of 120,000 square feet. Public water service (2,500 ± linear foot) will be extended to the site along the current access drive from East Ridge Road and a new sanitary sewer connection (400 ± linear foot) will be constructed southeast of the building area. Two alternatives are under consideration for the stormwater outfall to transmit from the stormwater detention facility into an un-named tributary to Densmore Creek: Alternative #1 (40 linear foot) that would flow north from the pond and Alternative #2 (140 linear foot) that would flow east from the pond.

Monroe County - The New York State Canal Corporation, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Gas Main Extension to Recycled Energy Development will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves proposal by Rochester Gas and Electric (RG&E), a utility company serving the Monroe County area, to install an approximately 4.5 mile long natural gas pipeline for the Recycled Energy Development (RED) power station located at the Eastman Business Park. The Project will help RED transition from coal to natural gas. The proposed pipeline installation will connect a new natural gas regulator station on Buffalo Road (NYS Route 33) on the west side of the Erie Canal to the inlet valve to the new pressure reduction and metering equipment at the RED station off Weiland Road. Although the pipeline will be located in a previously disturbed industrial area, the pipeline has been sited to minimize utility conflicts, potential contamination issues, and negative impacts to roads, recreational trails, and nearby facilities. The pipeline path includes an approximately one mile installation on New York State Canal Corporation land. The 16 inch pipeline installation requires trench excavation where the ground disturbance width will be about 20 feet and its depth will be about 6 feet, and also includes crossing an existing aerial pipe bridge over the Erie Canal. The project is located along a 4.5 mile corridor from Buffalo Road to Weiland Road within Monroe County, New York.

Steuben County - The Town of Erwin Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Family Life Performing Arts Theatre will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The action involves the remodel of the existing building located at 300 Town Center Road and construction of a new 1,900 person performing arts theatre with
associated infrastructure. The project also includes the subdivision of land into the main parcel and associated outparcels. The project proposes extending Town Center Road to intersect with Chatfield Place. The property lines for 310 Town Center Road and 200 Robert Dann Drive will be reconfigured as part of this project. The project is located at 300 and 310 Town Center Road in Painted Post, Town of Erwin, New York.

Wayne County - The Wayne County Water and Sewer Authority, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Wayne County Regional Water Tank Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact. The Wayne County Water and Sewer Authority (WCWSA) is working in cooperation with the Towns of Arcadia, Sodus, Huron, Williamson, Marion, and Lyons to fund and construct a joint, regional water storage facility and related pumping and transmission improvements. The WCWSA is applying for funding assistance from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development and the New York State Environmental Facilities Corporation (NYS EFC) to undertake the project. Current project plans call for the acquisition of a tank site (on the west side of Brantling Hill Road in the Town of Arcadia) and the installation of a 2 million gallon water storage tank. In addition, new waterline will be installed primarily along road rights-of-way, with a lesser amount following cross-lot easements, in the Towns of Arcadia, Sodus, Huron, and Williamson. The watermain will be directionally drilled across the Erie Canal at a location to be determined between the Village of Newark and the Village of Lyons, most likely in the Town of Arcadia, based on current planning. Two alternative routes are also under consideration for a segment of watermain in the Town of Huron. It is estimated that a total of approximately 86,500 linear foot of waterline will be installed, depending upon the final location of the Canal crossing and whether Alternative Route 1 or 2 within the Town of Huron is chosen as the preferred route. The project also includes installation of a new pump station in the Town of Sodus. A new pressure-reducing valve (PRV) will be installed and improvements will be made to an existing pump station in the Town of Williamson. Other activities include the installation of fire hydrants, valves, watermain connections, road crossings, excavation and bedding materials and surface restoration. The purpose of the project is to improve regional water system reliability, support economic development, provide expansion opportunity and increase regional shared infrastructure. The project is located along various roadways and cross lot easements in the Towns of Arcadia, Sodus, Huron, Williamson, Marion, and Lyons all in Wayne County, New York.
