Negative Declaration

Saratoga County - The Town of Ballston Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Desrosiers Subdivision will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

The action involves a proposal by the applicant and landowner, Marc and Carol Desrosiers, to create 58 single family residential lots in the Town of Ballston. The overall project site encompasses one parcel and encompasses 54.33 ± acres consisting of former agricultural lands, wooden areas, meadows and other vacant lands including two garages (Site). Approximately 38 acres of the site will be physically disturbed. The Project Site fronts along Eastline Road, has a western connection to Katharine Court in the Stonebridge PUDD and a southern connection to Knottingley Place in the Chapel Hill Subdivision. Current zoning for the parcel is Ballston Lake Residential District. The immediate surrounding areas within the Town of Ballston are also zoned Ballston Lake Residential.

The Applicant proposes to develop the existing Site for single family residential use. The primary infrastructure consists of approximately 5,900 ± linear feet of interconnected paved roadway that interconnects to the Chapel Hill Residential Subdivision, Stonebridge PUDD and Eastline Road. The roadway will be constructed to the Town of Ballston Highway Standards. All of the residential development will be serviced by public water and sewer, natural gas and electric utilities. Stormwater will be managed on-site. The Project is currently located in the Ballston Lake Residential Zoning District and subdivision approval from the Town of Ballston Planning Board will be required.

The project is located at 303 Eastline Road in Ballston Lake, Town of Ballston, New York.

Saratoga County - The Town of Ballston Planning Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Lowe Parcel Rural Subdivision, Thomas Benuscak, Goode Street/County Route 57 will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

The action involves a proposal by the applicant, Thomas Benuscak of Thomas Building & Development, Co., to subdivid a 35.79 acre parcel into twelve (12) single family lots in the Town of Ballston (Project). Ten (10) of the lots will be serviced by a proposed Town Road and two (2) lots will front on Goode Street. Approximately 12.1 ± acres of the Site will be physically disturbed. The ProThe tax map identification numbers of the parcel is 238.-1-39.12. Current zoning for the parcel is Rural District. The immediate surrounding areas are also zoned Rural. The Applicant proposes to develop the existing Site for single family residential use. The primary infrastructure consists of approximately 1,630 ± linear feet of new paved roadway, along one new cul-de-sac that will access off Goode Street. The length of roadway has been minimized to the greatest extent possible and will be constructed to the Town of Ballston Highway Standards.

All of the residential development will be serviced by individual private wells, on-site septic, natural gas and electric utilities. Stormwater will be managed on-site. An alternative source of water is public water via the Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake Consolidated Water District located off the 12 inch main on Goode Street, which requires a water district extension from the Town Board. The project density will remain the same regardless of the water source. The project is currently located in the Rural Zoning District and subdivision approval from the Town of Ballston Planning Board will be required.

Saratoga County - The South Glens Falls Village Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Water System Improvement Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

The proposed project includes upgrades to the water treatment plant, rehabilitation of the water tank, and replacement of water mains. The Village's water supply has PFOA/S contamination and has received New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) violations for high levels of chlorides. The 1 MG storage tank has deteriorating lead paint and is in need of rehabilitation. The 100 year old water mains have substantial leaks which create an artificially high water demand on the water supply and treatment. Replacing the water mains will greatly improve the loss of water and would address water shortage needs during the summer months. An evaluation of the Village's existing intermunicipal connections will also be included. The Village anticipates applying for funding through the DWSRF subsidized loan program to finance the engineering, administration and construction of improvements. As such, the project has been treated as a Type 1 Action as required by the DWSRF.

The project is located on Beach Road in the Village of South Glens Fall, New York.

Saratoga County - The South Glens Falls Village Board, as lead agency, has determined that the proposed Sanitary Sewer Upgrade Project will not have a significant adverse environmental impact.

The Village of South Glens Falls' sanitary sewer system was constructed in 1935. Much of the original system consisted of vitrified clay pipe and brick and mortar manholes which are still in service today.

The proposed project includes upgrades to the 1988 1st Street pump station, relining of existing sanitary sewers along NYS Route 9 and along Village roads, and rehabilitation of manholes along the relined sewer route. Upgrades to the existing pump station, including added storage capacity, will help to eliminate combined sewer overflows within the system.

The Village anticipates applying for funding through the CWSRF subsidized loan program to finance the engineering, administration and construction of improvements. As such, the project has been treated as a Type 1 Action as required by the CWSRF.

The project is located at 1st Street Pump Station and Village sewers along NYS Route 9 in the Village of South Glens Falls, New York.
