ENB - Region 4 Notices 12/27/2017

Negative Declaration

Albany County - The Town of Colonie, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Albany-Colonie Interconnection will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

The action involves the design and construction of an interconnection between two adjacent water distribution systems in the Latham Water District and Albany Water. The Albany Water Board and Town of Colonie water distribution systems are adjacent to each other, and in some locations, have pipes on the same street. Maintaining continuous water supply to its customers - even during unforeseen emergencies - is critical to both Albany and Latham Water. Two interconnections - Loudonville and New Karner Road - were simulated under average day demand conditions in the two systems. These two interconnections provide the highest potential capacity and broad geographic coverage between the two systems. The proposed project will be constructed within the right-of-way between the shoulder and swale, and consist of the following two interconnections: (1) The New Karner Road interconnection will consist of 3,500 feet of 16 inch interconnecting piping with provisions for portable pump(s) having a capacity of 2,400 gal/min at approximately 58 feet TDH. A bi-directional flow meter will be located in the vault. Piping will be provided to enable pumping from Albany to Latham Water, or vice-versa; and (2) The Loudonville interconnection will consist of approximately 4,000 feet of 24 inch interconnecting piping with provisions for portable pump(s) ) equipment having a capacity of 10 MGD at approximately 165 TDH. Pumps will draw suction from reservoir piping conveying UV-treated water. Latham Water's supply to the interconnection will be from the distribution system side of the Loudonville Pumping Station. Water obtained from Latham Water will be discharged directly into Loudonville Reservoir Basins B and/or C.

The project is located on New Karner Road in the Town of Colonie, New York and the Loudonville Reservoir in the City of Albany, New York.

Delaware County - Delaware County, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Final Delaware County Solid Waste Management Plan 2018-2027 and Long-Term Expansion Solid Waste Management Center will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

The Delaware County Final Local Solid Waste Management Plan 2018-2027 (FLSWMP) is a ten (10) year plan for future solid waste activities from January 1, 2018 thru December 31, 2027. The planning unit is restricted to Delaware County. This FLSWMP 2018-2027 supports the County's ongoing efforts to provide smart, sustainable, and locally available solid waste services for the residents and businesses of Delaware County for both near and long term needs. The County will be submitting to NYSDEC a request to modify the operational permit for the County's Solid Waste Management Center to allow for the lateral expansion of the landfill footprint within the existing property defined limits. This lateral expansion, in combination with continued maintenance and operation of the compost and recycling programs is anticipated to provide an estimated 60 years of additional solid waste program service life for Delaware County. Pursuant to 6NYCRR Section 617, the LSWMP was subject to SEQR review as a Type 1 action. Coordinated SEQR review was conducted prior to Determination of Non-Significance and Negative Declaration by the lead agency Delaware County Board of Supervisors Resolution 221 of 2017.

The project is located at 32230 State Highway 10, in Walton, New York.
